Hail to the chief baby! TVLine has word that Bruce Campbell is set to portray none other than former United States President Ronald Regan in an episode of the upcoming second season of FX’s Fargo series based on the Cohen Brothers film. Set in the 70’s Campbell will appear as Regan on his first campaign for president as he swings by Fargo to win the hearts and minds of it’s citizens. He’ll interact with several of the new cast members during his brief visit.
Campbell is quite busy these days, in addition to this stint on Fargo he’s also reprising the iconic role of Ash that made him famous for Starz ten episode revival of cult classic horror series The Evil Dead. Campbell’s casting in the new season of Fargo may be a nod to the original film as the actor had an uncredited cameo appearing as a character in a fictional soap opera playing on a television in a scene.
