Jury Duty Writer Wants This Succession Star For Season 2, And That Would Be Insane


Amazon Freevee’s Jury Duty, the improvised sitcom that one man thinks is a real criminal trial, has become a runaway hit. Much of this is thanks to the star power and brilliant comedic timing of James Marsden, who committed to playing an exaggerated version of himself for hours at a time all while managing to ensure that our hero, Ronald, was none the wiser. With the success of Jury Duty one can’t help but wonder if there will be a second season, and who will step into the Marsden-esque role of being the actual celebrity on set. Well, one of the writers has an idea, and it’s a Succession star.

I caught up with Mekki Leeper, who also plays Noah on the show, and asked who he would bring into the fold for Season 2. While his response isn’t what I expected, it kind of makes sense:

I guess it’s trendy to say because it’s so the show right now, but I would really love to see Jeremy Strong do something that’s this silly, because Succession is so, so, so funny… Jeremy Strong of course has the dramatic range and he’s obviously so funny as Kendall, but I’m like, what if he were doing something really, really silly? I don’t know. Maybe that’s insane. What does that look like for somebody who commits that way?
