Orange is the New Black may have ended, but that doesn’t mean Uzo Aduba is going anywhere. The insanely talented actress is joining Chris Rock in Fargo’s upcoming fourth season. We don’t know what Aduba’s role will be just yet, but the two-time Emmy-winning actress will certainly bring her A-game to anything.
On top of this, Aduba will also star in the upcoming FX [limited] series Mrs. America.
Aduba joins Jack Huston, Jason Schwartzman, Ben Whishaw, Jessie Buckley, Salvatore Esposito, Andrew Bird, Jeremie Harris, Gaetano Bruon, Anji White, Francesco Acquaroli, Emyri Crutchfield, and Amber Midthunder for season four.
Season four will take place in 1950’s Kansas City, Missouri. Two criminal syndicates are at peace, but not an easy one. The peace is cemented by the head of the Italian family and the head of the African-American family trading their eldest sons. Rock will play the head of one family, who now must raise his enemy’s son as his own. The head of the Kansas City mafia then goes to the hospital for routine surgery. He dies and then everything changes.
The first season of Fargo starred Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, and Keith Carradine. Since then Patrick Wilson was involved and the show has been immensely popular.
