Scottish Actor Ewan McGregor (Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace) is following up his recent dual role as Satan and Jesus with another dual role. This time, the Trainspotting star will be playing brothers Emmit and Ray Stussy. Emmit is a success story, while Ray is suffering a bad turn in fortune, which causes him to resent his brother. Fans of Fargo know that strife between brothers is a central point of the series as a whole. Season 1 featured Martin Freeman (Sherlock) as Lester Nygaard, who was a small meek man overshadowed by his more successful younger brother. Season 2 saw the divide in the Gerhardt family caused by 2 brothers of differing values.
Meanwhile, German Actress Franka Potente (The Bourne Identity) has been cast in SyFy’s Dark Matter as Commander Shaddick, the Chief Inspector of the Galactic Authority Serious Crimes Division. Shaddick plans to prove our protagonists’ involvement in the total destruction of a planet that occurred in the first season. Franka Potente first gained recognition for her role in Director Tom Tykwer’s (Sense8) avant garde film Run Lola Run.
