Ewan McGregor Fargo

Game of Thrones whatever, Fargo is the best show on television. The FX limited series has completed two seasons now, each with fantastic casts. The 1970’s throwback that was the second season was great, elevating both the filmmaking and storytelling. But in my opinion nothing can beat that award-caliber cast of the first season, which included Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Allison Tolman and Colin Hanks. Don’t get me wrong, Kirsten Dunst, Patrick Wilson, Jesse Plemons, Jean Smart and Ted Danson did a fantastic job, but for me it didn’t quite top Thornton, Freeman and Tolman.

So the question is: how will Fargo season 3 attempt to one-up this great FX series? Well today they have announced that BAFTA-winning actor Ewan McGregor (Trainspotting) will be joining the show for season three, and if that isn’t though, he will be playing the two characters at the center of this new story Find out more details about the Ewan McGregor Fargo casting, after the jump.
