Ewan McGregor slipped easily between 'Fargo's' feuding brothers: 'I was totally Ray ... and totally Emmit'

Ewan McGregor is no stranger to dual roles. He played both Jesus and the Devil in 2015’s “Last Days in the Desert” and a decade earlier portrayed his own clone in “The Island.” But only Noah Hawley’s limited FX series “Fargo” required the Scottish actor to play both sides of a bloody death scene.

As feuding brothers Emmit and Ray Stussy, McGregor came to be fighting with himself over a rare, framed postage stamp. Shoving the stamp over to younger brother Ray as part of a peace offering, Emmit accidentally breaks the frame, lodging a shard of glass in Ray’s neck and then watches in horror as his brother bleeds to death.
