Jim Gaffigan Joins FARGO Season Three

Well that’s just about perfect.

From an outsider’s perspective (yes, one of these days I promise to watch it), the main thing Fargo has going for it is excellent casting. On paper, season two looked like an embarrassment of riches. Season three is shaping up the same way.

We already know the show’s third season will feature Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ewan McGregor and Ewan McGregor. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, it can add perhaps the most appropriate person to ever star in a show about Minnesota, comedian Jim Gaffigan.

Gaffigan will play a deputy working with Carrie Coon’s Gloria Burgle. This is ultimately a crime show, after all. It needs its bumbling coppers.

Look for Fargo season three, produced by MGM Television and FX Productions, to arrive sometime in 2017.
