What do the stars on the TV series Fargo think about it being so strange?

A: The FX series, loosely inspired by the cult 1996 Coen brothers movie, has a dark, quirky undertone that continues to attract top acting talent. Season three, which premieres Wednesday night, April 19, stars Ewan McGregor, Jim Gaffigan, Scoot McNairy, Carrie Coon and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who plays Nikki Swango, a parolee with a passion for competitive bridge. Winstead, 32, says she was drawn to the show because it was “funny and sad and scary all at the same time.”
