Cox Saddles Up for 'Deadwood'

(Posted August 31, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) HBO's series about the Old West is adding another actor from the old country to its cast.

Brian Cox, an Emmy winner whose recent movie credits include "Red Eye" and "Troy," will have a hand in the third season of "Deadwood" next year. He's scheduled to appear in at least seven episodes of the show, which will return to the pay-cable network next year.

He'll play Jack Langrishe, a theater owner and producer who comes to the lawless Deadwood camp with the intent of giving it a little culture, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Scottish-born actor joins Brit Ian McShane and Northern Ireland native Paula Malcomson as regular cast members from across the pond.


Cox won an Emmy in 2001 for playing Nazi leader Hermann Goering in the TNT miniseries "Nuremburg." He was nominated for a guest-acting Emmy the following year for playing Daphne's (Jane Leeves) father on "Frasier."

His movie credits include "Braveheart," "X2," "Adaptation" and "The Bourne Supremacy." He'll also be seen in Woody Allen's "Match Point" later this year and is currently filming an adaptation of Augusten Burroughs' memoir "Running with Scissors."
