Kirsten Dunst joins Fargo
Casting is underway on S2 but it's still a long way off our screens.
She will play Peggy Blomquist, “a small town beautician with big city dreams who is trying to figure out who she really is and what she really wants as she struggles with traditional societal expectations.”
Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad, Friday Night Lights) will play her husband Ed, “a butcher’s assistant, who wants to be supportive of his wife’s self-discovery, even if he doesn’t quite understand it.”
The anthology series will tell a completely different story with a new cast set in 1979 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Luverne, Minnesota. The story will focus on a young Lou Solverson, played by Keith Carradine in the first season, on a harrowing case he experienced while working as a state police officer in Sioux Falls. The role has not yet been cast.
Season 2 will consist of 10 episodes and is due in late 2015.
