The Orange Is the New Black star will play a prison escapee in Season 4 of FX’s Fargo.
The anthology series’ upcoming season takes place in Kansas City, Mo., in 1950 (per the official logline) “at the end of two great American migrations — that of Southern Europeans from countries like Italy, who came to the U.S. at the turn of the last century and settled in northern cities like New York and Chicago, and African Americans who left the South in great numbers to escape Jim Crow and moved to those same cities.”
In that tumultuous town, an Italian crime organization and an African American one have forged a tentative peace by trading the eldest sons of each family. Saturday Night Live alum Chris Rock will play Loy Cannon, the head of one family.
Aduba’s character, Zelmare Roulette, is described as “ruthless” and aligned with the Cannon family.
