Actor Josh Coxx
No, this is not just your imagination playing tricks on you. It actually is the end of the road for TNT’s “Perception” when the final episode airs on March 17th.
Actor Josh Coxx returns for the final episodes on the show but who exactly is he? That’s what audiences are wondering after discovering he isn’t the FBI Agent he claimed to be after all.
Of course, female fans remember Josh from his earlier days as the super sexy midwife Peter Riggs on “Strong Medicine.” The sci-fi set will recall him as Lt. David Corwin on “Babylon 5” and the Marvel fans embrace him for his turn as Frost Giant Hailstrum in “Thor.”
I recently caught up with Josh Coxx to find out exactly who he is on “Perception.”
You started out as Special Agent Drexler but then you became a mystery man…was that the plan from the start?
JOSH: I'm not exactly sure what the writers had in mind from the get go but I like to think that what I brought to the set was influential in some way for them to want more out of character in any form. Toot toot! That was my own horn.
Where did you shoot and do you like being ‘on location’?
JOSH: We shot in 'fake' Paris and then the real Paris. I think I liked the real Paris better. HAHA. Locations are always fun as long as it's not an overly long time away from family. It can feel kinda like a paid vacation when the material and the people you work with are equally great, like on Perception.
The show is actually really solid, so what do you think happened?
JOSH: As far as not getting another season? That would be in the minds of the TNT execs. I couldn't say. I think it's a solid show too. Def worthy of more seasons.
Do you have a favorite genre to work in?
JOSH: I like work in general. Each genre has its golden qualities.
What’s been the biggest piece of advice you wish you’d followed?
JOSH: I still try to follow it today. Be nice to yourself already! If you can't do it now you won't be able to do it later when you finally get that 'thing' you think you needed so badly.
Did you ever think about giving up acting and what stopped you?
JOSH: Lots of times, unfortunately. But I knew my soul would shrivel if I didn't/don't keep going. Ya gotta stick with what you love. Looks I'm gonna be one of the last bulls in the ring.
Any more ‘bad guys’ in your future or are you going back to playing nice?
JOSH: I think I'm gonna request a really nice bad guy…..fun for sure.
