O’Donnell will play Ben Schmidt in the second installment of the series. Described as “ambitious and driven,” he was “that kid who narced on other kids.”
He joins a cast that includes Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Ted Danson and Patrick Wilson.
“Fargo” recently took home Golden Globe Awards for best mini-series and best actor for Billy Bob Thornton.
O’Donnell was most recently seen in “American Sniper,” which just earned an Oscar nomination for best picture. He can be seen next in the Jason Blum pic “Incarnate.” He is repped by UTA and Visionary Entertainment.
