Scottish actor, Brian Cox is the next to appear in James Bond-inspired unscripted competition show as the “Succession” star.
Cox will appear as “The Controller” in “007’s Road to a Million” for Prime Video, CNN reports.
Based on the show’s official synopsis, he “will control the fate of the contestants” as a “villainous and cultured” character. Contestants compete in two-person teams and are tested on “intelligence, endurance and heroism” in a bid to win $1.2 million.
Interestingly, the show takes part in many iconic Bond film locations around the world.
In reaction to this development, Cox in a statement said, “I got to see how ordinary people would cope with being on a James Bond adventure,”
“As they travel the world to some of the most iconic Bond locations, it gets more intense and nail-biting. I enjoyed my role as both villain and tormentor, with license to put the hopeful participants through the mangle.”
With close attention to the “Succession,” Cox plays Logan Roy, patriarch to the Roy family. The fourth and final season of the show is currently airing on HBO.
“007’s Road to a Million” is set to premiere on Prime Video globally later this year.
