Brian Cox In A New Play Called ‘The Great Society’


"Brian Cox had no intention of tackling a meaty character like Lyndon Baines Johnson in Robert Schenkkan’s “The Great Society.” He’d moved away from big theater roles to focus on parts in movies and television, most prominently HBO’s “Succession,” on which he plays Logan Roy, the founder of a media empire.

“At my age,” says Cox, 73, “I should be watching the daisies grow.”

He signed on to do a staged reading of “The Great Society” for “a nice fee,” but it went so well, director Bill Rauch approached him about doing a full-scale production."
