Mary Elizabeth Winstead is coming to “Fargo” and we can’t wait
Mary Elizabeth Winstead is coming to Fargo, Variety reported, and our day has just been made. Can life get any better?!
Of course, this is the Fargo TV show we’re talking about on FX.
Winstead will play the role of Nikki Swango, “a crafty and alluring recent parolee with a passion for competitive bridge playing.”
Apparently, her character will always be a step ahead of the competition.
The TV version of Fargo was created by Noah Hawley — he’s not only the showrunner, but also writes, directs, and is an executive producer on the show. And the Coen brothers produce, too (they wrote, directed, and produced the movie version, as you probably know).
If you haven’t watched the show yet, it takes place in small Minnesota towns — Bemidji and Luverne — and revolves around an eclectic set of characters.
And, ICYMI, Ewan McGregor and Carrie Coon will be starring, too. McGregor will play two parts, brothers Emmit and Ray Stussy, while Coon will play Gloria Burgle, the chief of the Eden Valley police.
Season 3 will also be jumping ahead and take place in 2010, a few decades after season 2, reported Entertainment Weekly.
And season 3 won’t be airing until the spring of 2017. Sigh. But it’ll be so worth the wait, amirite?!
Fun and ~amazing~ fact: Fargo has been nominated for 18 (!) Emmys for its second season (and won two Emmys last weekend at the Creative Arts Emmys). We’ll def be cheering them on!
In the meantime, brb, going to go rewatch season 2.
