FX announced the actor is headlining the third season of the acclaimed drama in not one, but two roles. He'll play brothers (not twins) named Emmit and Ray Stussy, described as:
Emmit Stussy is the Parking Lot King of Minnesota. A handsome, self-made, real estate mogul and family man, Emmit sees himself as an American success story. His slightly younger brother, Ray Stussy, on the other hand is more of a cautionary tale. Balding, pot-bellied, Ray is the kind of guy who peaked in high school. Now a parole officer, Ray has a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he's been dealt, and he blames his brother, Emmit, for his misfortunes.
Season 3 of "Fargo" will take place in 2010, a few years after the events of season 1. The second season was set in the 1970s. Executive producer Noah Hawley has hinted that a familiar character from a previous season, but no other casting has been announced yet.
This marks McGregor's first regular television role. He is filming "T2: Trainspotting 2," and can next be seen in the live-action "Beauty and the Beast."
