Ewan McGregor will be the next movie star to take on a lead role in FX's anthology series Fargo. According to Deadline, McGregor has been cast to anchor Season 3 of Noah Hawley's acclaimed Upper Midwestern crime series.
McGregor will play dual roles as brothers Emmit and Ray Stussy. Emmit, the older brother, is the "Parking Lot King of Minnesota," a wealthy and handsome real estate mogul. His younger brother Ray is a gone-to-seed parole officer who blames his brother for his life going off track. Probably not coincidentally, William H. Macy's character in the movie Fargo wanted to invest in a parking lot with his wealthy father-in-law (Harve Presnell), who had gotten out of the parking lot business years before because it was too tough to make money.
