Jones, who will have a recurring role, will play the matriarch of a large family agricultural operation.
She joins previously announced returning cast members Felicity Huffman, Timothy Hutton, Connor Jessup, Lili Taylor, as well as Regina King — who just won her second Emmy Award for her work in the series. Benito Martinez, who appeared in the first season, is returning as well, but in a larger role this time around.
Jones is now also starring in Amazon’s “Transparent,” which bows its third season on Sept. 23.
Executive producer John Ridley told Variety that the third season of “American Crime” will focus on workers’ rights and reproductive rights. And as compared to the first and second seasons, which centered on a single person’s guilt or innocence, this season will focus on “our greater complicity.”

Last night was the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards, where the television academy takes the time to recognize some of the greatest accomplishments in the industry for the past season. Not surprisingly, the show that came out on top this year was none other than Game of Thrones, a show that seemingly only gets stronger and stronger as time goes on (despite the absence of source material at this point).
This also marked the year that Game of Thrones surpassed Frasier for the record total of Emmys won during a show run. Frasier previously held the record with 37 wins, and with two seasons left, Game of Thrones has secured the title with 38 wins, a record it's sure to barrel over over the course of the next couple seasons.
Below is the list of nominees and winners for several major categories at this year's Emmys!
Outstanding Drama Series

Just last night, the TV Oscars, the Emmys were dished out in a lavish ceremony in Los Angeles. Game of Thrones was the big winner on the night, once again, bagging the top drama prize for the second year in a row (the show’s total number of awards now stands at 38), while Veep did the same in the comedy award. Mr Robot, Orphan Black and even Downton Abbey also received gongs, including one for our own Dame Maggie Smith. She picked up the award for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series, playing Violet Crawley in the show.
Here are the winners in full.

Over the weekend, the Television Academy handed out the Creative Arts Emmys — i.e., the awards not quite glamorous to be squeezed into this coming Sunday's 68th Primetime Emmy Awards telecast on ABC. Lots of interesting things happened, including Game of Thrones picking up 9 awards (the Creative Arts includes most of the technical categories), Crazy Ex-Girlfriend sharing an award of choreography but losing both song categories for which it was eligible (to Diane Warren's song from The Hunting Ground and the Jessica Jones theme music), and more. But the one that got my attention the most — and convinced me to finally change the way I do my annual Emmy preview column — was Character Actress Margo Martindale's repeat win for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama for her work on The Americans. I love both The Americans and Character Actress Margo Martindale, but she was in one scene all season, »

As the great Ed Harris once said, “You gotta take a side.” And this year, you’ve got to choose between “The People v. O.J. Simpson” and “Fargo.” Sure, “The Night Manager” was a solid throwback thriller and “Roots” justified its reimagining with one helluva run (while “American Crime” remains a dangerously misguided acting exercise), but these two standout entries would be easy choices if they weren’t competing against each other. Noah Hawley’s second season was even bolder than his first, but we’ve got to stick with our TCA pals and back “The People.” Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski’s anthology did what many deemed impossible by making O.J. relevant again, and the craft applied to »

The 22-year-old thesp won critical acclaim for his role as Taylor Blaine in Season 2 of John Ridley and Michael McDonald’s drama. He joins previously announced returning stars Timothy Hutton, Felicity Huffman, Regina King, Lili Taylor and Richard Cabral for the third installment of the series.
“Connor Jessup is one of the smartest and most talented young actors working today. John and I believe Connor’s performance will be even more emotionally shocking than last year as his character helps shed new light on the opiate addiction epidemic that is plaguing America,” said McDonald.
Season 3 of “American Crime” will see its cast taking on new roles for another standalone story arc, this time set in North Carolina against a backdrop of labor issues.
Jessup can currently be seen in “Closet Monster,” currently »

To paraphrase George Orwell, while all acting may be equally hard, some roles are harder than others. Emmy voters took that philosophy to heart this year, particularly in the lead actress in a limited series or a movie category, nominating a group of women for their challenging, gritty roles: Kerry Washington (“Confirmation”), Sarah Paulson (“The People v. O.J. Simpson”), Audra McDonald (“Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill”), Felicity Huffman and Lili Taylor (“American Crime”), and Kirsten Dunst (“Fargo”).
Washington and Paulson have both stated that playing Anita Hill and Marcia Clark, respectively, have been their toughest roles ever, and both stress the responsibility of portraying living, still-active people. “You don’t have that freedom you get when playing invented characters, especially when you’ve met the real person — as I did, towards the end of the shoot,” notes Paulson. “And I had to battle against my own preconceptions about Marcia.
