Alexander Skarsgård is the brand new star of HBO’s Succession.
According to several reports, the 44-year-old actor has been decided to be casted in the role of Lukas Matsson in the upcoming third season of the HBO drama series. The Skarsgård character is described as “successful, confrontational tech founder and CEO.”
Other New Comers Along With Skarsgård
Skarsgård is not the only newcomer to Succession. In April, Saaa Lathan confirmed she had joined the program as New York lawyer Lisa Arthur, and Korean singer Jihae Kim was introduced as a public relations specialist Berry Schneider.
And politics will continue to play a key role in Roy family series, as teased by the addition of senior White House aide Michelle-Anne Vanderhoven, who will be portrayed by Linda Edmond.
For those who wonder if Willa, Karl and Fisher have proven their loyalty to the Roys, they can no longer worry. Justine Lupe, David Rasche and Hugo Baker have been promoted to regular series.
Biggest Spoiler So Far
As per usual, Jesse Armstrong is keeping the major plot points for the upcoming season close to his chest.
That being said, the cast has teased some aspects of the series, like who remains employed by Waystar Royco.
Nicholas Braun has offered the biggest spoiler thus far, writing in a March Instagram post, “I am an employee of this company, and that’s about all I can say about that!”
In the picture, Braun poses in a sharply-tailored suit in front of a Waystar Royco chyron.
Has Any Premiere Date Been Announced?
As fans will recall, Braun’s character, Cousin Greg, played a pivotal role in Kendall’s (Jeremy Strong) takedown of Logan Roy (Brian Cox). If Kendall’s coup was successful, then perhaps Cousin Greg has found himself in a higher position that requires the pricey ensemble he sports in the Instagram photo.
So far, a premiere date hasn’t been announced as the show is still in production, but our fingers are crossed for a fall arrival.
