FX has shared a couple more teaser trailers for Fargo’s third season — now revealing the second of Ewan McGregor’s drastically different brother characters. The first teaser showed Mary Elizabeth Winstead and McGregor looking like this:
Yes, that exceedingly un-McGregor McGregor was Ray Stussy, a parole officer who apparently sometimes orders pie at a diner w/ Mary Elizabeth Winstead. (Winstead plays Nikki Swango, and is in a relationship with Stussy, her parole officer). Perceptive viewers may have also caught a glimpse of Carrie Coon in the first teaser, as department police chief Gloria Burgle.
Now, we now have a look at McGregor’s “Minnesota Parking Lot king” character, Emmit Stussy. This Stussy we see, in the teaser, licking stamps and smiling a sinister smile. Also engaged in something deeply banal — but filmed with vague eeriness — is Coon’s character, in another new teaser. She cannot get a supermarket’s automatic door to open for her. She says “what the heck.” It is apparently teaser trailer-worthy. (A former teaser showed her having difficulty with a walkie talkie while driving.)
The season premieres April 19.
