SCOTLAND – Respected actor, Brian Cox got the surprise of his life this morning after the global media claimed he had secured the coveted role of Matt Murdoch in the Netflix Daredevilseries:
I mean don’t get me wrong, I’m glad of the work but my agent told me this chap the ‘Daredevil’ jumps off buildings and runs around doing back flips and stuff, so I’m surprised they didn’t hire a younger guy.
Cox is a genius just look what he did with the character of Hannibal Lecter. In the first draft of the script he was a Punic Carthaginian commander who marched over the Alps and battled the Romans but Cox played him as a psychopathic cannibal in contemporary America. Talk about a game changing decision I mean, would Anthony Hopkins have won an Oscar if Cox hadn’t adapted Hannibal so dramatically? There’s no way he would have fit an elephant in that prison cell.
