Dunst will play "Peggy Blomquist," a small town beautician with big city dreams who is trying to figure out who she really is and what she really wants as she struggles with traditional societal expectations. She shares her home with her husband "Ed" (Plemons), a butcher's assistant, who wants to be supportive of his wife's self-discovery, even if he doesn't quite understand it.

Dunst earned a Golden Globe nomination for her performance in the 1994 feature film Interview with the Vampire and won the Best Actress Award at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival for her role in Melancholia.

He is repped by TalentWorks and David Matlof.

Fargo's new chapter, which will unfold over the course of 10 episodes, will travel back to 1979 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Luverne, Minnesota, where a young State Police Officer "Lou Solverson" (yet to be cast), recently back from Vietnam, will tackle an all new "true crime" case. Solverson's wife, "Betsy," (yet to be cast) their four-year-old daughter, "Molly," (yet to be cast) and fellow officer, "Ben Schmidt," (yet to be cast) will also be featured in the new installment.
