Okay Fargo season 5... you have our attention...
Sometimes you hear some casting and it just clicks. Of course Jon Hamm is going to be in a new season of Fargo. That makes all the sense in the world - he was made for Fargo.
He'll be joined in the new season by Ted Lasso star Juno Temple, currently seen in the watchable (faint praise) Paramount+ show The Offer. Also starring is Jennifer Jason Leigh, another actor who fits Fargo like a glove.
What we know about the new season isn't a lot. We know that the new season is set in 2019 and asks the questions:
1) when is a kidnapping not a kidnapping?
2) What if your wife isn’t yours?
These questions make me assume the nefarious Riddler is behind the caper.
We also know some character names. Hamm will play a guy named Roy, Temple will play Dot, and Leigh will play Lorraine.
Season 3 of Ted Lasso to be the last
In other Juno Temple-related news, it seems to be firming up that the third season of Ted Lasso will be its last.
In an interview with the Sunday Times, writer and co-star Brett Goldstein commented that they are approaching writing season 3 as though it will be the last. I really like that they are planning to go out while it is on top.
