Adrien Brody was thrown from the third season of Succession and is going to have a guest appearance on the show. The HBO satirical play, made by Jesse Armstrong, follows the members of their dysfunctional, immoral Roy family who are always at odds and fighting the power of the media conglomerate, Waystar RoyCo, that is led by founder and patriarch, Logan Roy. The Emmy-winning collection is executive produced by Adam McKay and Will Ferrell, and in Addition, It stars Jeremy Strong, Matthew Macfadyen, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, Nicholas Braun, and Alan Ruck.
That Brody will join the series as a guest star, playing the role of Josh Aaronson, who will have an active part in the continuing war for Waystar RoyCo as a billionaire activist investor. Brody is an Oscar-winning actor and has had a long, successful career in television and film. He is best known for his roles in Midnight in Paris, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Houdini, and Peaky Blinders. Aside from Succession, Brody will be seen in Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch, the Marilyn Monroe biographical Netflix film Blond, and Pat Riley in an HBO restricted series about the LA Lakers in the 1980s, which can also be developed by McKay.
After Succession last left off in the next season finale, Logan Roy was pitted against his son Kendall, played by Powerful, after being blamed by him to get a scandal involving the company. Based on the sly grin appearing on Logan Roy’s face since the last shot, it seems that the third season will become a severe public struggle unlike any that the Roy family has been through before. With Brody only guest-starring in the series, it’ll be exciting to see the way his personality impacts the length of the upcoming season and what part he’ll play in the household battle.
