Brian Cox - The Big C

Award-winning actor Brian Cox will guest star in one episode of Showtimes’ new original series, THE BIG C, which premieres on August 16th at 10:30p PT/ET.

Cox, known for his previous work in movies such as Manhunter, Braveheart, The Bourne Identity, and Troy, will appear in the series as Laura Linney’s irascible, distant father.

The Big C stars Laura Linney as Cathy, a repressed suburban teacher, wife and mother who reclaims her life after a terminal cancer diagnosis. Oliver Platt (2012) stars as her immature, but well-meaning husband. Gabourey Sidibe plays a smart-alecky student in Cathy’s class.
The series is created and written by Darlene Hunt and written and executive produced by Hunt and Showrunner Jenny Bicks. Linney, Neal H. Moritz and Vivian Cannon also executive produce. Acclaimed writer/director/producer Bill Condon (Breaking Dawn) directed the pilot.
