Peggy and Ed are getting married. And no, we’re not talking about the Blumquists from Fargo themselves right now. We’re talking about Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons, who have just announced their engagement!
The engagement comes after about a year of dating. Dunst, 34, and Plemons, 28, were spotted kissing back in May. Even when the cat was out of the bag, the two still kept their relationship pretty private. But now that we’ve got a wedding coming along for the Fargo co-stars, Dunst can happily show off her ring. She did as much at the Palm Springs Film Festival, where she also wore a stunning pewter Ralph and Russo dress.
On and Off Fargo
The duo co-starred in the FX black comedy-crime drama Fargo, named after the North Dakota city, in 2015. Taking over in the second season from Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman, the two played a married couple who inadvertently commit homicide. They then try to cover up their hit and run, but before they know it, they’re pulled into a series of events involving the local crime syndicate.
The arc has since concluded, with the show’s upcoming third season set to feature different story entirely. But it seems that despite no longer working together, Dunst and Plemons had other plans to keep seeing each other. Page Six reported their engagement Tuesday.
Back in 2015’s PalyFest, Jesse Plemons raved about the opportunity to work with Kirsten Dunst. “It was a gift,” he said. “I loved Kirsten’s work for a long time, and I was really excited once I’d met her, and she’s a great person, and we’re both actors that just… have fun with the material.”
Plemons leapt into popularity with AMC’s Breaking Bad, playing villain Todd Alquist in season 5. He’s also known for playing Landry Clarke in Friday Night Lights, and had appeared in Battleship and Black Mass. Kirsten Dunst catapulted into fame playing Mary Jane Watson in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man films in the early to mid-2000’s. She won acclaim for 2011’s Melancholia, and more recently appeared in The Midnight Special.
“Thirty-three is a good age to have your baby,” Dunst said, earlier this year. Seems like we might be able to expect a family soon! What do you think? Comments below!
