David Thewlis, Jim Gaffigan, And Michael Stuhlbarg Cast In Fargo

FX has added David Thewlis, Jim Gaffigan, and Michael Stuhlbarg to the third season of Fargo.

The three actors all bring years of experience and impressive resumes to the crime drama. Stuhlbarg has appeared in MIB3 as well as the critically-acclaimed A Serious Man and Boardwalk Empire, and Thewlis is remembered for his recurring role in the Harry Potter series. Gaffigan, of course, is renowned for his stand-up comedy as well as his appearances on movies and TV shows:

Set in 2010, the next installment of Fargo will feature an all-new “true crime” tale centered on “Emmit” and his slightly younger brother “Ray Stussy” (Ewan McGregor). Emmit, the Parking Lot King of Minnesota, sees himself as an American success story, whereas Ray is more of a cautionary tale. Forever living in his more successful brother’s shadow, Ray is a balding and pot-bellied parole officer with a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt – and he blames his brother. Their sibling rivalry leads to a twisted path that begins with petty theft but soon leads to murder, mobsters and cut-throat competitive bridge. Carrie Coon stars as “Gloria Burgle,” the steady chief of the local police department. A newly divorced mother, Gloria is trying to understand the new world around her, where people connect more intimately with their phones than with the people around them.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
