Queen of the South, USA Network's high-octane drama about a female-led drug cartel, just cast Ryan O'Nan as a weed-smuggling Texan who will help queenpins Teresa Mendoza (Alice Braga) and Camila Vargas (Veronica Falcon) build their empire in season two.
Here's what we dug up on O'Nan, who will play the character King George, described in an announcement in TheWrap as "eccentric, ruthless, lethal, and unpredictable -- laughing with you one moment, and gutting you like a fish the next, a loose cannon who is as slippery as an eel."
You know him from Fargo season 2
Ah, yes. Ricky G, an obnoxious hitman from the Gerhardt Crime Syndicate in Buffalo, NY. One of the last times you saw him was in 1979 (in the universe of Fargo, not in real life), wearing a turtleneck and a gold chain.
He was also Bunchy's bud in Ray Donovan
In Ray Donovan's second season, O'Nan played Bunchy's fellow 12-stepper, Stan. Remember when Stan kissed Bunchy, suggesting that the real reason Bunchy needed Viagra was because he was subconsciously gay? Yeah, that went great...
He's not only acting this season
One of O'Nan's credits in Queen of the South season two is "Actor." He's also a story editor this year, doing double duty in front of the camera and also in the writers' room!
He wrote for the FX series Legion
Ryan's connection to showrunner Noah Hawley extends beyond Fargo. Ryan also starred in Hawley's ABC series The Unusuals and wrote for FX's new comic book adaptation Legion, based on the Marvel character of the same name.
He even has an album!
Ryan is a musician and his indie music comedy, Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best, premiered at the 2011 Toronto Film Festival. An official album, based on the band in the movie, is described as "The Shins meet Sesame Street."
