Star “Succession” Alan Ruck says even the genius writers on his show couldn’t imagine the storm of Asset World… admit that fact really is stranger than fiction.
We had Ruck – who plays Connor Roy on the HBO hit – at LAX on Thursday and he raised his hands a bit, basically saying the weirdness of American politics couldn’t be captured in the imagination, because even the imaginary requires A CERTAIN credibility!
“Succession” has been credited with both foreshadowing and retelling of actual events in business and politics. Ruck commends the show’s writers for this, letting us know that they’re simply very up to date.
Ruck jokes The “Succession” writers are SO good at foreshadowing that they might be able to write a scene where a former president goes to jail… and then it happens in real life. This is clearly what Ruck is betting on.
As you know, Trump’s house in Mar-a-Lago was teeming with FBI agents earlier this week who were there to execute a search warrant related to confidential documents investigators believe Trump was secretly keeping on the property.
Thursday, the Attorney General Merrick Garland revealed that the Justice Department was asking a judge to unseal the search warrant and related documents. It’s a good bet, everything will end on season 4!
