‘Fargo’ Season 4 casts ‘Justified’ star Timothy Olyphant in a recurring role. Hell fucking yes.
Timothy Olyphant is going to be up in that Fargo season 4 shit. I say, goddamn. One of my favorite actors joining one of my favorite shows? I’m stoked.
“Justified” alum Timothy Olyphant is coming home to FX to join the Chris Rock-led fourth season of “Fargo.”
Olyphant will be a recurring guest star, playing a character name Dick “Deafy” Wickware, an FX spokesperson told TheWrap.
The fourth season of “Fargo” will travel back to the 1950s. FX provided the following summation for the installment:
In 1950, at the end of two great American migrations — that of Southern Europeans from countries like Italy, who came to the US at the turn of the last century and settled in northern cities like New York, Chicago — and African Americans who left the south in great numbers to escape Jim Crow and moved to those same cities — you saw a collision of outsiders, all fighting for a piece of the American dream. In Kansas City, Missouri, two criminal syndicates have struck an uneasy peace. One Italian, one African American. Together they control an alternate economy — that of exploitation, graft and drugs. This too is the history of America. To cement their peace, the heads of both families have traded their youngest sons.
Chris Rock plays the head of one family, a man who — in order to prosper — has surrendered his youngest boy to his enemy, and who must in turn raise his enemy’s son as his own. It’s an uneasy peace, but profitable. And then the head of the Kansas City mafia goes into the hospital for routine surgery and dies. And everything changes. It’s a story of immigration and assimilation, and the things we do for money. And as always, a story of basically decent people who are probably in over their heads. You know, Fargo.
