article image‘Fargo’ season 3 trailer shows different sides of Ewan McGregor Special

The trailer for the third season of FX’s ‘Fargo’ features several familiar faces in not-so-familiar roles as more sneaky dealing occurs behind Minnesota’s snowbanks.
Television shows have been regularly challenging theatrical films in terms of providing audiences quality entertainment. Networks like HBO, FX and AMC have dominated awards ceremonies in recent years by delivering exceptional content and notable visuals. Moreover, an increasingly popular model built on independent seasons that feature new characters and storylines connected by an overarching theme has renewed audience’s interest in TV dramas. One of the advantages of this template has been the ability to attract Hollywood actors to key roles since the commitment isn’t any more demanding than a film shoot. It’s been applied numerous times now but one of the most popular instances has been in FX’s Fargo, which recently released its season three trailer.
Emmit Stussy (Ewan McGregor) is the “Parking Lot King of Minnesota”… and everything his slightly younger brother, Ray (also McGregor), is not. Emmit is a successful, handsome real estate mogul, while Ray is a balding, pot-bellied parole officer who resents his brother’s accomplishments. However, they’re both about to be pulled to the other side of the law. Emmit receives a business proposition he can’t refuse from V.M. Vargas (David Thewlis) and Ray’s opposites-attract girlfriend, Nikki Swango (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), convinces Ray it’s time he took what’s his from the world. When they’re dealings lead to murder, it’s up to Eden Valley Police Chief Gloria Burgle (Carrie Coon) to find out what’s happening in her town.
The extended two-minute trailer shows a little more than the one-minute trailer for the Coen Brothers series, but they’re both fairly revealing. Most impressive is McGregor playing opposite himself in physically distinct roles, while also pulling off two variations of a Minnesota accent for the characters. This season looks as if it will be just as amusing and compelling as the first two, featuring strange characters and even stranger story connections. New episodes start April 19.
