Carrie Coon has landed a leading role in Fargo season 3 alongside Ewan McGregor….
When The Leftovers is finished, Fargo will begin.
At least that’s the case for Carrie Coon, who has been cast in the lead female role for Fargo season 3 where she will star alongside Ewan McGregor in the latest installment of the anthology series on FX.
Coon — who is currently in Australia filming the third and final season of HBO’s apocalyptic drama The Leftovers — will join the cast where she plays Gloria Burgle — “a practical woman who grabs the fire extinguisher when the bacon catches fire and everyone else panics. Gloria is the chief of the Eden Valley police, and a newly divorced mother, who is struggling to understand this new world around her where people connect more intimately with their phones than the people right in front of them.”
McGregor is set to play both lead roles as twins — one a successful real estate magnate, the other a less than successful patrolman — who will now star opposite Coon in the award winning series.
Fargo season 3 isn’t expected to debut on FX until 2017.
