Cousin Greg

Are you watching Succession yet? One of the best characters in it is Cousin Greg, played by Nicholas Braun. Here’s a recent interview with him to read before you watch tonight’s episode. 

(New York Times, approx 9 mins reading time)

When you’re in Braun’s company, almost anything he says, in his unhurried and naturally innocuous delivery, can seem funny. It can feel like he just has a preternatural propensity for getting himself into awkwardly comic situations. Those reactions might also be the result of an automatic tendency to associate this 33-year-old actor with his breakout role as Cousin Greg on HBO’s “Succession,” who could have ended up a hapless second-tier character if Braun hadn’t helped elevate him into a first-rank buffoon on that cutthroat comedy-drama.
