Person of Interest - Season 5 - Josh Close gets recurring role

Josh Close, who played brother to Martin Freeman’s Lester Nygaard during Season 1 of FX’s Fargo, will recur on Season 5 the CBS drama, co-showrunner Greg Plageman told TVLine on Saturday night at a party celebrating the series’ 100th episode.

Plageman offered no details on Close’s role, other than to say he plays a “very interesting” character — in what is poised to be the series’ strongest season to date, in the opinion of several cast members I spoke to at the soiree.

“I honestly can say that Season 5 is the best season we’ve ever had,” Kevin Chapman, who plays Fusco, effused. “The action, the performances, the subject matter…. Everything. They’ve really gone above and beyond.”
