According to Deadline, award-winning actress Holly Hunter is confirmed to join the cast of HBO’s popular series Succession. Hunter will be joining the Brian Cox-led cast for a recurring role in the show’s upcoming second season. She will portray the powerful CEO of a rival media company.
An aging Logan Roy (Cox) wants to step back from the media and entertainment conglomerate he runs with his four sons. The series chronicles the family’s struggle to keep their company running as circumstances, ones sometimes beyond their control, plague them at every turn.
Hunter is an Oscar, Emmy, and Golden Globe-winning actress with an impressive number of credits. Career highlights include her portrayal of the fan-favorite Elastigirl from The Incredibles and its 2018 sequel, her Academy Award-winning turn in The Piano, and, more recently, The Big Sick.
The second season of Succession airs in August. Stay tuned for updates!
