Brian Cox says he’s glad ‘Succession’ is ending
The internet erupted in fear last month when Succession creator Jesse Armstrong revealed that the Emmy-winning drama’s fourth season would be his last. But Brian Cox, who has portrayed ruthless businessman Logan Roy since the show’s 2018 debut, supports creator Jesse Armstrong’s decision to end the show.
According to Variety, a US-based media house, Scot Cox claims that “he’s very disciplined in that way and he’s also very British in that way”. “The American propensity is to milk it for whatever it’s worth.”
I’ll miss the cast, I’ll miss the atmosphere, I’ll miss the bonhomie,” he said, as reported by Variety. “Logan, probably, I’ll miss a bit. But up and on.”
The mega-corporation at the heart of the show, Waystar Royco, is the prize that Logan fought for and eventually drove away altogether with his adult children Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Roman (Kieran Culkin), and Shiv (Sarah Snook) by the end of Season 3 Cox can be reticent about the company’s Murdochian founder. But Cox channels Logan to explain Logan’s motives. On March 26, the season four debut, Logan is excited, alone and isolated. Logan is upset because his offspring – with the exception of the leech-like Connor, played by Alan Ruck – don’t show up for his birthday party. “He’s very focused on who he is,” Cox says, “when the kids aren’t around… and not in a good way.”
According to Variety, the show’s creator and executive producer Jesse Armstrong is sad that the show is ending. Along with Cox, the cast of “Succession,” which debuted in 2018, is Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, Alan Ruck, Matthew Macfadyen, Nicholas Braun, and J. Smith-Cameron.
Executive producers include Adam McKay, Frank Rich, Kevin Messick, Jane Tranter, Mark Mylod, Tony Roche, Scott Ferguson, Jon Brown, Lucy Prebble, Will Tracy and Will Ferrell, with Armstrong, who also serves as the show’s creator. (ANI)
