Sarsgaard will play Tom Seward, a death row inmate and lifelong convict who's been in and out of the justice system for violent crimes since he was 10. Born into poverty and crime, Seward never wants to appear weak, and views every interaction as a challenge that he must dominate.

Last month, AMC renewed the series for a third season, saying that Veena Sud would return as showrunner, writer and executive producer for the 12-episode season.

Actors Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman are also returning for the third season, which begins production Feb. 25 in Vancouver.

This will mark Sarsgaard's first recurring role on a television series.
