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:
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.
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.
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."
