Brian Cox says his character in Succession is “very misunderstood”

The Emmy race is heating up (the nominations are announced this Thursday, July 7) and, as usual, Successionof HBO is ready to be the favorite in several categories.

One of the many actors likely to be nominated is Brian Cox, who plays Logan, the patriarch of the Roy family. But while other stars turn on their fan charms and watch what they say during the pre-awards campaigns, Cox – reportedly IndieWire– offers a rosary of answers to the delight of all who listen.

In an interview with The TimesCox said he thinks his evil character “he’s not a horrible man at all” and, in fact, he is a “very misunderstood man”.

“What I love about Logan is that he has a wicked sense of humorCox said. “He knows how to get people screwed up, and he deliberately shakes them up. He constantly wakes people up, even though he is brutal in a way. I have great respect for him.

Sticks to Johnny Depp

According to IndieWire, it is far from the first time that the actor compares his strong opinions. He recently recalled turning down a role in the franchise of Pirates of the Caribbean and revealed that he believes that Johnny Depp “is hyped and overrated.”

“For example in Young ScissorhandsLet’s face it, if you come in with hands like that and pale makeup and scars on your face, you don’t have to do anything,” Cox said. “And he didn’t. And later, even less so. But people love him. or loved him. They don’t love him that much these days, of course,” he smiled at the Lout given the famous trial of the star and his controversial ex.

Cox was also one of Hollywood’s earliest and most outspoken opponents of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, delivering a memorable tirade at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, expressing support for Russian artists when it was not politically correct to do so.

“What really distresses me is what is happening in Russia to my fellow actors, actresses, artists, writers and critics. They are told, under penalty of high treason, that they can’t say a word about Ukraine. And I think that’s pretty awful…” she commented with her full voice into the microphone.

And he said more: “I think we should all be together. And also for those people who live in Russia and who probably do not like what is happening. I am particularly referring to the artists., that in no way, as artists, should they want there to be a war in the world. I think we should really come together to celebrate them and hope they can really make a difference…”

As to Succession, very soon Cox will be seen disguised as Roy again. Near the end of June, HBO confirmed the start of production of the season 4.

“With every season of Successionthe creator, Jesse Armstrong has proven himself and our wildest expectations, bringing us closer to the inner sanctum of the Roy family with indelible wit, humanity and precision,” said Francesca Orsi, HBO’s executive vice president of programming in a statement.
