We may be a few episodes into Fargo season 3, but there’s a surprise addition to the cast that hasn’t yet been announced.

Battlestar Galactica veteran and Major Crimes star Mary McDonnell has booked a guest arc on the FX drama.

She plays “the so-called storage queen of The Great Lakes region, Ruby Goldfarb, who offers Emmit Stussy (Ewan McGregor) a way out of the mess he’s in.”

“We all love the show, but when you get the scripts and see the specificity of [showrunner Noah Hawley’s] work, he has this way of being simultaneously real and practical and mysterious at the same time,” McDonnell tells EW. “I feel so lucky. I’ve been in outer space [in Battlestar] and worked for the LAPD [in Major Crimes] and now been out in the prairie. And in each instance, you can’t believe how specific the world is. Everything in Fargo resonates with me in terms of the type of America this is — how the people speak, what their lifestyles are like, how they interact with dilemmas. It’s all regional and absolutely specific to that world.”

McDonnell first appears in the fifth episode, “The House of Special Purpose,”  which airs May 17.

Site Maintenance    Comments Off on Fundraising: Bycicling for AIDS/Lifecycle

Follow the details below and if you have any doubt contact the person. I am not involved into this fundraising, just reposting for all of you to know and for a good cause.

Mary McDonnell & G.W. Bailey are participating in charity raffle:

In a week’s time I will begin riding my bicycle from the Canadian/US border to the US/Mexican border to raise money for AIDS/Lifecycle. To help me with my fundraising efforts Mary, GW, and Brenda Strong (Seinfeld, Desperate Housewives, Dallas, Supergirl) have agreed to record an outgoing message on raffle winners’ voicemails! Money will be going towards AIDS and HIV+ patients’ care at the Los Angeles LGBT Center. Things like free HIV testing, mental health, and medical treatment are provided at the center for low-income patients. It’s a great cause and it means so much to me that these three incredibly talented folks have offered to help. Even better, they’re willing to record the messages in the character of your choice!

Here are the details:

Donations are to be made through my fundraising page:

$25 = 1 raffle ticket
$50 = 3 raffle tickets
$100 = 10 raffle tickets
