I love HBO’s Succession. I really do. But the lack of color is a bit startling. Granted, the real life media landscape is pretty much as white as snow, but the appearance and then absence of Parker Sawyer’s character was kind of weird. He sort of just…disappeared.
Maybe this is one of those accidental missteps the show is ironically embracing. Sure. We’ll go with that. Via Variety:
Sanaa Lathan, Linda Emond, Jihae have all joined the Golden Globe and Emmy-winning series. They join current series regulars like Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Kieran Culkin, Sarah Snook, Hiam Abbass, Nicholas Braun, Peter Friedman, Matthew Macfadyen, Alan Ruck, and Rob Yang.
Ambushed by his rebellious son Kendall (Strong) at the end of Season 2, Logan Roy (Cox) begins Season 3 in a perilous position. Scrambling to secure familial, political, and financial alliances, tensions rise as a bitter corporate battle threatens to turn into a family civil war.
Lathan will play Lisa Arthur, a high profile well-connected New York lawyer. Lathan’s past credits include the films “Alien vs. Predator,” “Love & Basketball,” and “Nappily Ever After” as well as shows like “The Affair,” “Shots Fired,” and the reboot of “The Twilight Zone.”
Let’s hope this turns into a long term thing.
