Brian Cox reviews ‘Succession’ Season 4 and explains what makes Logan Roy tick

(CNN) “Succession” star Brian Cox is reveal part of what makes Logan Roy so complicated.

Cox explained in a conversation with CNN’s Chris Wallace on “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?” That his character is deeply disappointed in the world and holds it all inside, makes him bitter.

“I think he’s very disappointed,” Cox said of fictional media mogul Logan Roy. “Throughout the whole show, we’ve seen the scars on his back, we’ve seen all the things that happen, and you never know the genius of Jesse Armstrong and the writers that they don’t reveal any of that. They’re just, that’s a color that’s there. We have to fill in those elements to actually create that in a world as it was.” And that, I think, is exactly what happens in that scene where his son says he’s evil, you know, Logan doesn’t think he’s evil.”

Cox added that the Roy family’s patriarch “believes that morals broke down a long time ago”.

“So he doesn’t feel it was particularly ethical or even immoral,” Cox explained. “He thinks it’s over it.”

When Wallace asked if Roy was “undermining” his children at every point in an attempt to ensure there would be no succession in his empire, Cox said that it wasn’t entirely true.

He replied, “Oh no, he certainly wants the succession but he’s trying to figure out who’s the one going up in the mob.”

The fourth season of “Succession” will premiere on HBO Max March 26 (CNN and HBO are part of Warner Bros. Discovery.)
