Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons cast in Fargo season 2

16 December 2014 1:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

FX has announced that Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man) and Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad) have signed on for major roles in the second season of the Emmy Award-winning Fargo.

According to EW, Dunst 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. She shares her home with her husband Ed (Plemons), a butcher’s assistant, who wants to be supportive of his wife’s self-discovery, even if he doesn’t quite understand it.”

The second season of Fargo will once again consist of 10 episodes and takes place in 1979, revolving around the character of a young Lou Solverson (played by Keith Carradine in season one) as he returns from the Vietnam War and embarks on a new career as a police office in Sioux Falls.

11 December 2014 4:52 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Kirsten Dunst ("Spider-Man") and Jesse Plemons ("Breaking Bad") have joined the cast of the second season of FX's "Fargo" in starring roles.

Dunst will play Peggy Blomquist, described as "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."

Plemons is 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."

Set in Sioux Falls in 1979, the ten-episode second season of the anthology miniseries will feature new characters and a younger version of Keith Carradine's Lou Solverson. While FX has confirmed Dunst and Plemons, they've yet to confirm the previously rumored Jeffrey Donovan ("Burn Notice") and Nick Offerman ("Parks and Recreation").

Season 2 Of Fargo Will Star Kirsten Dunst And Jesse Plemons

11 December 2014 2:09 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the greatest strengths of the first season of FX’s Fargo was the cast that assembled for Noah Hawley’s fine extension of the Coen Brothers’ work. Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Allison Tolman, Colin Hanks, Bob Odenkirk and Oliver Platt, among others, all brought gravitas, while fitting their performances perfectly with the incredibly well-written material. With the show planned as an anthology series – like True Detective – speculation soon began as to which talented actors would headline season two, since season one set the bar so high. Now, it seems the cast for the next story is finally coming together, and it once again shows some interesting choices. Kirsten Dunst (The Two Faces Of January) will star alongside Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad).

The new story set to unfold in this second season takes place in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Luverne, Minnesota, in 1979. An entirely new case is »

Fargo season 2: Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons will star

11 December 2014 12:11 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Breaking Bad’s Jesse Plemons and former Mary-Jane Watson Kirsten Dunst set for the second season of Fargo

Fargo was one of the big surprises in the last year of telly, with those who thought a loose follow-up to the Coen brother’s filmic drama wouldn’t work quickly silenced.

Naturally, a second season was hastily ordered. This second run now has now confirmed the first few names in its cast.

The first name announced is Kirsten Dunst, proving once more that calibre and stature of actors who can now be tempted to the small screen.

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.’

Additionally, Jesse Plemons has joined the party. Perhaps best known for playing Todd in 13 episodes of Breaking Bad, Plemons »

'Fargo' lands Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons for Season 2

10 December 2014 1:29 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Casting has officially begun in earnest for the second season of FX's "Fargo," which is officially set to begin production in Calgary in January. The first two actors formally announced for the 10-episode anthology miniseries are Kirsten Dunst ("Bring It On") and Jesse Plemons, who appear to be set as the civilian side of the story, which will be set in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Luverne, Minnesota in 1979. Dunst 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." Plemons will play Peggy's husband Ed, a butcher's assistant, who struggles to be supportive with his wife's journey of self-discovery.  Will Ed eventually kill many people? If Plemons' history on "Friday Night Lights" and "Breaking Bad" has taught us anything, the answer is probably "Yes." On the law-and-order side, »

10 December 2014 12:39 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

FX is beginning to set its cast for Fargo Season 2, and a pair of rather talented actors are the first to officially sign on.  The network announced today that Kirsten Dunst and Breaking Bad and Friday Night Lights alum Jesse Plemons have closed deals for co-starring roles in the second season of the anthology series, which will take place in 1979 Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  The logline for this new season was actually teased during the first season of the show, as Keith Carradine’s Lou Solverson recounted a horrifying case that still haunted him.  Find out who Dunst and Plemons will be playing in the second season of Fargo after the jump. While Fargo Season 2 will revolve around Solverson returning from Vietnam and tackling a new case (with his wife and a young Molly poised to appear), Plemons and Dunst will be playing different characters entirely.  Dunst will fill the role of Peggy Blomquist, »

'Fargo' Season 2 to Star Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons

10 December 2014 8:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons have booked their tickets to "Fargo."

Entertainment Weekly reports that the two actors have signed on to star in season 2 of the Emmy-winning FX anthology series. The first season of the show, adapted from the Coen brothers movie, won the Best Miniseries trophy, and performances by Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, and Allison Tolman garnered gushing accolades from critics.

As an anthology series, like FX sibling "American Horror Story" and HBO's "True Detective," will take place in a new setting with new characters. Unlike the aforementioned shows, however, "Fargo" will maintain loose ties between seasons.

Dunst will play small-town beautician Peggy Blomquist, who dreams of the big city while struggling with traditional societal expectations. Plemons ("Breaking Bad," "Friday Night Lights") is her husband, a butcher's assistant who wants to support his wife, even if he doesn't quite understand her.

Season 2 will be a prequel, of sorts, »

Fargo Season 2 Recruits Jeffrey Donovan And Rachel Keller; Nick Offerman Courted

4 December 2014 8:53 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Noah Hawley’s Fargo miniseries was one of the most unexpected delights of television this year, so it’s no wonder we’re keen to hear more about where the show will go from here now that FX has renewed it for a second season. Today, it was revealed that Hawley has begun casting for the next iteration of Fargo, adding Burn Notice‘s Jeffrey Donovan and Rachel Keller (Hollidaysburg) to what will be an ensemble cast. Additionally, he’s sent an offer out to Parks and Recreation actor Nick Offerman.

Hawley previously intrigued us by saying that the series will be set in 1979, with some of the same characters from season 1 returning, albeit much younger and played by different actors. Donovan has been set to play a character named Dodd, while Keller has been set to play Simone. If Offerman responds in the affirmative, he’ll play Carl.

Fargo: Season 2 Adds Burn Notice Star Jeffrey Donovan; Nick Offerman Being Courted to Join Cast

4 December 2014 8:29 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Bringing the Coen Brothers' classic film Fargo to television was a risky proposition, but showrunner Noah Hawley did a terrific job, and the anthology series is set to return in 2015 for a 10-episode second season with a new cast, new story, and a new setting.  Season 2 will take place around an incident in Sioux Falls, South Dakota in 1979 and focuses on a young Lou Solverson (played in season one by Keith Carradine).  Hawley says the new season will not only draw inspiration from Fargo, but also from other Coen Brothers movies such as Miller's Crossing and The Man Who Wasn't There. Casting is currently underway and Jeffrey Donovan (Burn Notice) is moving to the cold Midwest, and might be joined by Nick Offerman. According to The Wrap, Donovan has been cast to play Dodd, not that the character name means anything other than he's not playing the young Lou.  I »

What's New on TV, Netflix Streaming, Digital, and DVD/Blu-ray This Week: November 24 - 30

24 November 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"What If"

This charming indie rom-com stars Daniel Radcliffe as Wallace and Zoe Kazan as Chantry, two platonic friends who maybe, kinda sorta want to be more than friends. At least Wallace does; Chantry is in a long-term relationship, and Wallace has convinced himself being "just friends" is better than not having Chantry in his life at all. Adam Driver and Mackenzie Davis co-star as Wallace's best friend and his new girl; together, their newfound lust (or it is love?) is hilarious and unstoppable.

"The Long Goodbye"/"Thieves Like Us"

Don't overlook these classic '70s films by Robert Altman. "The Long Goodbye" stars Elliot Gould as Philip Marlowe in an updated version of Raymond Chandler's novel, alongside Nina Van Pallandt, »

PopWatch Confessional: What's the scariest thing you saw as a kid (that wasn't supposed to scare you)?

31 October 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Ghosts, ghouls, vampires, demons—they've been frightening kids for centuries, and with good reason. But children's brains are strange, malleable places that can perceive even the most unassuming figures—a cute, helpful Jedi Grand Master, a cuddly elephantine creature, a precocious baby dinosaur—as sinister agents of terror. Which brings us to today's Halloween-inspired PopWatch Confessional: What's the unintentionally scary thing that frightened you most when you were a kid? (Bonus: Reading through is a great way to stealthily learn how old we all are.) Ashley Fetters, online news editor: I was about eight when I saw the original »

27 October 2014 1:49 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

ABC has done very well with their political drama, Scandal. Will Madam Secretary be a similar ratings hit for CBS? Will it be renewed for a second season or will it be cancelled? Stay tuned.

On Madam Secretary, former CIA analyst Elizabeth McCord (Tèa Leoni) returns to public life after being recruited by the President (Keith Carradine) to become the new Secretary of State. The rest of the cast includes Željko Ivanek, Bebe Neuwirth, Geoffrey Arend, Patina Miller, Erich Bergen, Tim Daly, Katherine Herzer, and Evan Roe.

Madam Secretary: Cancel or Keep the New CBS Drama?

5 October 2014 11:09 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though politics are an extra touchy subject these days, CBS decided to order a new drama about a blonde, female Secretary of State -- Madam Secretary. Some feel that it's a thinly-veiled allusion to Hillary Clinton while others see the show as a piece of fiction. Either way, CBS is a corporation that makes money from selling advertising and must attract healthy ratings to do that. Is Madam Secretary a success with viewers? Will it survive? Cancel or keep it?
