FX has announced that Jack Huston, Jason Schwartzman and Ben Whishaw are amongst a dozen new cast members to join the forthcoming fourth season of the anthology series “Fargo”. They join previously announced comedian Chris Rock in the lead role.
Set in 1950 in Kansas City, Missouri and revolves around two criminal syndicates – one Italian, one African-American – with Rock playing the head of the latter. To cement an uneasy peace, the heads of both families have traded their eldest sons.
Things take a turn when the Italian syndicate head goes into the hospital for routine surgery and dies. Schwartzman will play a character by the name of Josto Fadda, Whishaw is Rabbi Milligan and Huston will portray Odis Weff.
Also hopping onboard are Jessie Buckley, Salvatore Esposito, Andrew Bird, Jeremie Harris, Gaetano Bruon, Anji White, Francesco Acquaroli, Emyri Crutchfield, and Amber Midthunder.
Noah Hawley will again return as showrunner, writer and director. The fourth season is set to air in 2020.
