Succession’s Matthew Macfadyen wants a word.

The star of HBO's hit new show Succession talks Mr. Darcy, #metoo and the Murdochs

This is the title of the interview The Gentleman's Mens Journal recently did with Matthew Macfadyen.

That is to say, he is in equal measure interesting and interested. Oh — and incredibly patient.

About his character Tom Wamsgans in 'Succession':

For Macfadyen, it is the chance to “flex different muscles” and he confesses that he’s been lucky. “I think in a funny way that you fall in love with every part you play”, he says, “playing Tom was such fun, because it was something totally different and sort of silly”.

An excerpt: 

For viewers who enjoy Tom’s scenes with Greg, know that even goofier footage of the duo exists. Macfadyen said that Armstrong would often give him this note: “Matthew, I think you need to really tone down the silliness a bit. Tom is running a billion-dollar sub-company.” Said Macfadyen, “Tom runs the parks division. So he can’t be a total prick. But I guess he can a little [on this show], because everyone’s making mistakes, just behaving like absolute assholes. They’re not so slick and cool. They’re rich as Croesus, and miserable. . . . Perhaps he’s a little more cheerful than the rest of them, but he’s not without ambition.”
