"It's not the Minnesota I grew up in, I can tell ya that!"

Scottish actor and now-budding linguist Ewan McGregor goes from voicing a French candlestick in the recent musical blockbuster "Beauty and the Beast" to portraying a pair of Minnesotan siblings, Emmit and Ray Stussy, in the much-awaited third season of FX's hit anthology series "Fargo," for which a new extended trailer has just been released online.

Set in the year 2010 and centering on the bitter rivalry between two drastically different brothers -- though they're not twins; one's a successful parking lot mogul and the other is a down-on-his-luck parole officer (both played by McGregor), the third installment of the darkly comic crime series features an all-new cast that includes Carrie Coon (from "Gone Girl" and HBO's "The Leftovers") as local police detective Gloria Burgle while Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane) plays cunning parolee Nikki Swango, girlfriend of McGregor's low-life character Ray.

Scoot McNairy (AMC's Halt and Catch Fire), Michael Stuhlbarg (Doctor Strange, Arrival), David Thewlis (upcoming Wonder Woman), and comedian Jim Gaffigan co-star.

"Fargo: Season 3" will run for ten episodes, with series creator Noah Hawley writing and directing the hour-long opener, which is set to premiere on Wednesday, April 19th on FX.

Set in 2010, the third installment of Fargo centers on "Emmit Stussy" and his slightly younger brother "Ray" (Ewan McGregor in dual roles).

Emmit, the "Parking Lot King of Minnesota," is a handsome, self-made real estate mogul with a perfect family -- a real American success story. His slightly younger brother Ray is more of a cautionary tale. Wilted from a lifetime of living in Emmit's shadow, Ray is a balding, pot-bellied parole officer with a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt -- and he blames his brother.

The only bright spot in Ray's life is the love of a not-so-good woman, "Nikki Swango" (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), one of his parolees. Nikki has brains, beauty and a deep and abiding passion for competitive bridge. She decides to help Ray turn his fortunes around, by essentially stealing back his good karma. Unsurprisingly, things quickly get out of hand and petty theft leads to murder.

When the mayhem crosses county lines, Eden Valley Police Chief "Gloria Burgle" (Carrie Coon), a newly divorced mother, is called upon to investigate. Normally steady and imperturbable, Gloria is shaken when the case takes an unexpectedly personal turn. Meanwhile, Emmit's perfect life is upended when he receives an unwelcome business proposal from a mysterious loner and true capitalist, "V.M. Vargas" (David Thewlis), whose bosses plan to become business partners with "The Parking Lot King," whether Emmit likes it or not.
