    December 25, 1978 —

    Jeremy Strong, best-known for playing "number one boy" Kendall Roy on "Succession", was recently profiled in New Yorker magazine. The article turned many heads.

    One thing the profile does not mention is that Strong is half Jewish, on his father's side. Instead, it goes into detail into his method acting. "To me, the stakes are life and death," Strong says. "I take [Kendall] as seriously as I take my own life."

    It gets curiouser and curiouser. When Strong's wife attempts to claim that he is a good husband, he rebuffs her. "It does make me feel like I'm living a double life. At the time, I'm not sure which one is more real. Am I committing to the legend at home, where I'm the father and the husband, or the legend at work?"

    Absurd, isn't it? And yet, this method acting has propelled Strong to almost universal acclaim... at least from viewers, not so much from his co-workers. You could see how those who deal with him daily would not exactly appreciate this madness.

    Unless, you know, that New Yorker interview was just... an act?

    Verdict: Borderline Jew.
