    Anyone who wants to see into the future, if only for a few seconds, could do worse than check out the trailer for the third series of ‘Fargo’. It’s features heavily a rather heavy-looking famous Scottish actor, balding of pate, girthy of waist, and moustachioed of top lip. Hurl in a shiny leather sport coat, and it’s likely a terrifying glimpse for Ewan McGregor of what might be ahead if he lets things go a bit. The clip finds him eating in a diner with Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and making a rather sharp exit once Carrie Coon’s police chief Gloria Burgle arrives. ...
