Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson join second season of FX's 'Fargo'
Wilson, star of “The Conjuring,” will play Lou Solverson, described as a “clean-cut Minnesota state patrolman” and war veteran who tackles a crime case, while “Cheers” actor Danson will play Lou’s father-in-law, Sheriff Hank Larsson, FX said.
Veteran TV actress Smart will play Floyd Gerhardt, the matriarch of a crime family.
“Spider-Man” and “Melancholia” actress Dunst makes her transition to television as small-town beautician Peggy Blomquist in the show, while Plemons, best known for his role in AMC TV’s “Breaking Bad,” will play her husband Ed, a butcher’s assistant.
The second season of FX’s “Fargo,” adapted from Joel and Ethan Coen’s 1996 Oscar-winning film of the same name, will follow a 1979 crime story across 10 episodes, set in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and Luverne, Minnesota.
