CoxWatch

Last year I posted a thread on the IMDb messageboards about spotting someone who looked and sounded like Brian Cox in Peter Watkins‘ 1965 nuclear apocalypse what-if pseudo-documentary film The War Game:

is that him as an interviewee, about 6 mins 50 secs in?

the interviewee (see screengrab below) sounds very much like him, even if he may not be a dead ringer visually, he doesn’t look like it’s definitely not cox, iyswim. cox would have been 18-19 when ‘the war game’ was made; the youth pictured certainly seems like he could be around that age.

also, whilst imdb doesn’t list a full cast for ‘the war game’, and it’s not on cox’s filmography, cox is credited with tv work from 1965.

anyone know any more?

Well, a mere 8+ months later, I have received a reply!

I’m not sure if it counts as 100% reliable corroboration (an assenting reply on IMDb holding about as much weight as a vote of confidence from a YouTuber ;-)) but it’ll do for me…
