 “Succession” star Nicholas Braun seemingly asked out Kim Kardashian West in a hilarious Instagram video on Monday. 

The actor, who plays Cousin Greg on the hit HBO series, said news of Kardashian West’s divorce from Kanye West was “bumming me out,” but offered a possible solution for the beauty mogul. 

“Where does she go, from this moment?” Braun wondered. “Because she’s been through three marriages now, and it’s like, are you willing to even take a shot on a new guy at this point?”

“Like, would you be down to meet a new person, a totally kind of different guy?” he asked Kardashian West in the video.

Braun then went on to highlight the redeeming qualities of this hypothetical man, telling Kardashian West that he would be able to “make you laugh a little bit, or make you feel small, because he’s so tall.” (The “Succession” star is known for his offbeat sense of humor, and previously told Insider’s Jacob Shamsian that he’s 6 feet 7 inches.

According to Braun, the hypothetical man could also make an Instagram video asking Kardashian West out, “because he doesn’t know anybody who knows her.” 

“So he’s just sort of making a video that might possibly penetrate her — not the right word choice, but — enter her sphere of… you know?” the actor said. 

Ideally, Braun explained, Kardashian West would see the video and go, “‘Hmm, this guy is odd, but maybe in a good way?'” 

He ended the video by expressing his hope that Kardashian West would want to meet up with this hypothetical man. 

“So could something like that happen for her, is all I’m really wondering,” Braun concluded.

He captioned the nearly three-minute-long video, “It’s all about meeting new people,” and tagged Kardashian West. 

Fellow celebrities spoke out in support of Braun in the comments section of his video. Christopher Mintz-Plasse (of “Superbad” fame) wrote that Kardashian West would “be absolutely insane to pass up this opportunity.” 

“Nick you’re f—ing in bro,” Hilary Duff commented, while Lili Reinhart told Braun to give Kardashian West “a little time… she’ll come around.” 

Representatives for Kardashian West didn’t immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
