Jeffrey Wright, Rodrigo Santoro and more join HBO's Westworld

HBO's upcoming sci-fi remake of WESTWORLD from producers J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub, Bryan Burk and writers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy is starting to heat up again with the addition of a few cast members. The show as you know is based on the 1973 film of the same name written and directed by Michael Crichton. It's basically about robots at a theme park that go crazy. If that sounds familiar it should; Crichton evolved the story two decades later for JURASSIC PARK. Check out our previous story from last month where it was confirmed that Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood will star, and Jonathan Nolan will be directing.

Six more actors have now joined including the great Jeffrey Wright (THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY), Rodrigo Santoro (300), Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Angela Sarafyan and Simon Quarterman.

Read who each actor plays on Westworld as per TV Line:

Wright | Bernard Lowe: The brilliant and quixotic head of the park’s Programming Division, Bernard’s keen observation of human nature provides him with boundless inspiration for his life’s work: creating artificial people.

Santoro | Harlan Bell: Terrifying and brutal, with a dark sense of humor, Harlan is Westworld’s perennial “Most Wanted” bandit. He subscribes to the theory that the West is a wild place, and the only way to survive is to embrace the role of predator.

Woodward | Elsie King: A sardonic rising star in the Programming division, Elsie is charged with diagnosing the odd quirks of behaviors in the park’s hosts.

Berdal | Armistice: A savage fighter and brutal bandit, her ruthlessness with her victims is surpassed only by her abiding loyalty to her fellow outlaws.

Sarafyan | Clementine Pennyfeather: One of Westworld’s most popular attractions, every aspect of Clementine is perfectly beguiling, by design.

Quarterman | Lee Sizemore: The narrative director of Westworld, his inspired storylines consistently delight or terrify the guests — and his artistic temperament consistently grates on his colleagues.

Hopkins is Dr. Robert Ford, the head of the park and Rachel Wood is Dolores Abernathy, an innocent girl who visits the park at the wrong time. It’s definitely sounding like Westworld is coming together as another win for HBO; fans of the movie may not have to worry with this talent backing it up.

What did you think of the WESTWORLD movie? Are you looking forward to this TV version?
