Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong) is the eldest son of Logan Roy (after Connor, but let’s be honest, he was never in consideration to succeed his dad). Lachlan Murdoch is the eldest son of Rupert Murdoch. According to Vanity Fair, Lachlan is Rupert’s “favorite” child and the one he favors to take over the empire for him. Remind you of anyone’s “number one boy”?

Even though Kendall is often provoking his dad on purpose and kind of wants to destroy him, it’s pretty obvious that he’s only doing that because he desperately craves his father’s love and attention and he’s learned that making horribly conniving business moves against him is pretty much the only way to get it.

Lachlan is currently the co-chairman at News Corp. working under this father, who is executive chairman. Not sure whether Lachlan is as good at rapping as Kendall, though. Dude be the OG.
