The 76-year-old has since doubled down on his comments, calling Strong’s method “fucking annoying” in an interview earlier this year.

In a newly published interview with diversity Prior to the show’s fourth season, Cox attributed Strong’s acting style to the culture in which he was raised and raised.

“Just do the job,” he continued. “Not identify.”

Referring to famed method actor Daniel Day-Lewis, Cox said, “He retired at the age of 55, and I say, ‘That’s when the roles get really interesting. You’ve retired just when the roles are actually getting better!’

“Of course, Jeremy was Dan Day-Lewis’ assistant. So he learned all that stuff from Dan.”

However, Cox noted that he thought Strong was “a wonderful actor.”

Responding to Cox’s take on his acting style earlier this year, Strong said, “Everyone is entitled to have their feelings. I also think Brian Cox, for example, has earned the right to say what he wants.
