I almost can’t speak or think straight or write anything sensible. OBI-WAN IS COMING TO MY LIVING ROOM, AND HE’S GOING TO BE ALL COEN-ED UP AND HAWLEYED, AND FARGO-Y. Not only that, Ewan McGregor will be times two, as in he’s playing two roles — brothers.
My heart can’t take it, my brain can’t take it; I think I’m having palpitations. Yoda, help me.
Here’s the details on McGregor’s characters, Ray and Emmit Stussey, via Deadline:
“Emmit Stussy is the Parking Lot King of Minnesota. A handsome, self-made, real estate mogul and family man, Emmit sees himself as an American success story. His slightly younger brother, Ray Stussy, on the other hand is more of a cautionary tale. Balding, pot-bellied, Ray is the kind of guy who peaked in high school. Now a parole officer, Ray has a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt, and he blames his brother, Emmit, for his misfortunes.”
This is the first casting notice for Fargo‘s third season, expected to air on FX in 2017.
ThankyouJebusgodSkynetMotherNatureScotland; this may be the best news of my life.
I’m off to drink myself into a coma, now.
