HBO’s J.J. Abrams-produced Westworld pilot has quickly become the go-to place for talent.
Anthony Hopkins is leading the pack, playing the scientist behind a futuristic theme park in which, ahem, robots like, short and start attacking visitors.
Evan Rachel Wood is also on board the project, which found its inspiration in the 1973 Michael Crichton movie by the same. As are Jeffrey Wright and Rodrigo Santoro, from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and TV’s Lost, respectively.
Now comes word that James Marsden has joined the cast, which means that Westworld is totally something I will watch.
He will take on the role of a mysterious – and sexy! – new arrival to a small frontier town who rapidly establishes as a charmer that is not to be trifled with (’cause he’s real good with a gun).
