The Leftovers star Carrie Coon has been tapped for a lead role opposite Ewan McGregor in the third season of FX’s Emmy-winning anthology series Fargo.
Coon will play 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.
I'm just catching up on season 2 of Fargo now it's on UK netflix. The scene with Reagan in the toilet was just superb, Campbell absolutely nailed it. I guess it's been said before but this season is just as good as season 1. It hasn't had a stand out performance like BBT but I think the cast as a whole is better, particularly Bear and fat Matt Damon.
I finished season 2 yesterday and I think I liked it a little more than season 1 (which I liked a lot). Across the board, the cast seems stronger (and I'd have to agree with Chalky up the page, Kirsten Dunst definitely nails it but in a completely different way to BBT). My absolute favourite bit in the whole series was that they didn't kill off Betsy. I wasn't particularly happy with the final episode though, they seemed to take a bit too long in tying up the loose ends. But 6-9 were just incredible.
