Physicist Brian Cox and actor Brian Cox have explained how their identical names cause confusion.
The men spoke to Charlie Stayt on BBC Breakfast and said they often arrive somewhere to find people are waiting for ‘the other’ Brian Cox.
Physicist Brian Cox said he had to use a different name when a hotel told him their system couldn’t handle two separate bookings under the same name.
Actor Brian Cox, widely recognized for his role as Logan Roy in the HBO series Succession, was on the program to promote his new documentary ‘Brian Cox: How the Other Half Live’.
The other Brian Cox was there to talk about his new book ‘Black Holes: The Key to Understanding the Universe’.
