Brian Cox may be one of the stars of HBO’s Succession, but don’t count him out of joining the cast of Euphoria just yet!

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday, the Emmy Award-winning actor, 75, showed off his range by taking on the iconic bathroom scene from season 2 of Euphoria, channeling Cassie (Sydney Sweeney) while she’s having her epic meltdown dressed like she’s in the play, Oklahoma.

“F– it,” said Cox, who was decked out in a cowboy hat and a light blue gingham button-down shirt, placing his hands on his hips with the attitude of a teenager.

“I’m in love with Nate Jacobs and he’s in love with me and don’t you f–ing give me that look, Maddie! I didn’t f– your boyfriend!” the Succession star continued. “You two were broken up for three weeks and three days before we even had sex! So I didn’t betray you! Plus, you guys are terrible for each other, and you know it. You know I’m right!”

“You can all judge me if you want but I do not care. I have never, ever been happier!” Cox continued, hilariously and furiously biting into an apple as he stared at himself in the mirror – a twist on the original scene in which Cassie just stares straight ahead and doesn’t say a word.
