Ewan McGregor has made an impressive debut as a pair of brothers – both the smart, successful Emmit Stussy and the balding pot-bellied Ray Stussy – in the official trailer for season three of Fargo.

The third instalment of the popular drama introduces us to Emmit (McGregor), the Parking Lot King of Minnesota and a self-declared American success story. But his much less attractive younger brother Ray (also played by McGregor) is a parole officer with a chip on his shoulder, living in Emmit’s shadow.

If you didn’t know they were played by the same actor, it would be hard to spot any similarities between Emmit and Ray whatsoever.

Their sibling rivalry will be at the heart of the new season, as the brothers’ path takes them towards murder, mobsters and “cutthroat competitive bridge”.

Starring alongside McGregor will be Carrie Coon, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and David Thewlis. The trailer also gives us a brief glimpse of Coon as Gloria Burgle, the chief of the local police department, while Winstead is set to play Ray’s girlfriend.
