Brian Cox Says ‘Succession’ Co-Star Jeremy Strong Should ‘Have a Hit of Marijuana’

February 23, 2023 · Celeb Stoner

The star of the hit show Succession, Brian Cox, started smoking pot when he was 50. Now that he’s 76 and the winner of the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Series – Drama in 2020 for his role as Logan Roy in the Showtime series, Cox says about his favorite smokeable herb: 

Cox should be familiar to Super Troopers fans. He played Captain O’Hagan in the 2001 original and 2018 sequel. His troops were the stoners.

Cox adds about cannabis:

“I didn’t start until I was 50. I was very against it, actually. Then when I was 50, I realized I missed out on what was going on with young people because I was so square, and I was working so hard, I needed something to relax. So I discovered the wonderful world of cannabis. It does make the politics easier to bear. It’s a way of dealing with idiocy.”

Cox, who lives in New York, was born in Scotland. He’s called for marijuiana to be decriminalized in his home country. It’s currently banned in the UK.

For its second season, Succession was also named Best TV Series – Drama at the Golden Globes. The show won the Emmys’ Outstanding Dramatic Series award in 2019, 2020 and 2022. Cox plays the patriach of the dysfunctional Roy family that owns a media empire. (Full Story)
