Halt and Catch Fire‘s Scoot McNairy is making the trip from Silicon Valley to Fargo.
Fargo creator Noah Hawley told TVLine on the red carpet at Sunday’s Emmys that McNairy will recur during Season 3 of the acclaimed FX anthology series. Details on his character were not disclosed.
Earlier this week it was announced that BrainDead‘s Mary Elizabeth Winstead landed the series-regular role of Nikki Swango, a crafty and alluring recent parolee with a passion for competitive bridge playing.
Said to be set closer to the present than Seasons 1 and 2 were, Season 3 of Fargo focuses on a pair of lookalike brothers, both played by Ewan McGregor. The older of the two, Emmit, is a good-looking, self-assured real estate magnate — aka the Parking Lot King of Minnesota. His younger bro, Ray, is a flabby parole officer who believes that Emmit is somehow responsible for his sorry state of affairs. Carrie Coon (The Leftovers) plays Gloria, the chief of the Eden Valley police.
Production on Fargo‘s new run is tentatively scheduled to begin later this year, with new episodes dropping in 2017.
