Travis Fimmel is going from raiding England with Northmen to raiding former President Richard Nixon's secret fund. The "Vikings" actor has already been confirmed to star in the upcoming heist thriller "Finding Steve McQueen" and it looks like he will be getting help from Trish Walker. "Jessica Jones" Season 2 actress Rachael Taylor is set to appear alongside Fimmel in the film that will follow a group of thieves as they try to steal $30 million worth of blackmail money.

"Finding Steve McQueen" was originally supposed to feature Kate Bosworth alongside Travis Fimmel, Forest Whitaker and William Fichtner, as per Deadline. However, the actress has since dropped out and was replaced by Rachael Taylor, who is best known for playing Trish Walker in "Jessica Jones".

Travis Fimmel has been cast as Harry Barber and is set to lead a band of thieves from Ohio. Their plan is to make away with the contents of Richard Nixon's secret fund, which allegedly contains around $30 million worth of blackmail money and illegal contributions. This certainly sounds like the kind of thing Ragnar Lothbrok of "Vikings" would do. Although Ragnar has already been killed off in the History series, there is hope that Fimmel will still make an appearance in Season 5.

CeleBeat has previously reported on the possibility that Travis Fimmel will reprise his role as Ragnar Lothbrok in "Vikings" Season 5 despite being killed off in the fourth season. After all, Athelstan returned in Season 4 as a vision that appeared to Ragnar and King Ecbert, who are both, needless to say, now dead in the series as well. Perhaps visions of the dearly departed might mean death is coming for certain characters in the show, but that hasn't stopped fans from hoping Ragnar will pop up with a warning for one of his sons, preferably Ivar the Boneless.

There is no confirmation yet whether Travis Fimmel will return in "Vikings" Season 5. "Finding Steve McQueen" has recently completed post-production and is expected to be released by 2018.
