One of television's great gathering places for acting talent is FX's Fargo, the award-winning anthology series from Noah Hawley that branches off of the Coen brothers' film of the same name. So it should be no surprise that the Season 3 cast is shaping up to be another collection of trophy hogs.
FX today officially announced eight new cast members for the season, which is due out sometime in 2017 and follows brothers Emmit and Ray Stussy, both played by the previously announced Ewan McGregor, as their sibling rivalry turns deadly.
Headlining the news is British actor David Thewlis, who will play the mysterious loner V.M. Vargas. Thewlis is best known for his role as Remus Lupin in the Harry Potter films. Michael Stuhlbarg will play Sy Feltz, the right-hand man of Emmit, and comedian Jim Gaffigan will play Donny Mashman, a deputy at the local police department.
Fargo returns for Season 3 sometime in 2017 on FX.
