Westworld Adds Jeffrey Wright, Shannon Woodward, Rodrigo Santoro And 3 More

Wright.jpgHBO series Westworld has cast six actors according to TVLine. Most notably Jeffrey Wright of Boardwalk Empire and the James Bond franchise, Shannon Woodward of Raising Hope and Rodrigo Santoro of Lost. Also cast  Ingrid Bolso Berdal (Hercules), Angela Sarafyan (The Good Guys) and Simon Quarterman (The Devil Inside).

The series is being produced by J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub and Bryan Burk and written by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. It is inspired by the Michael Crichton 1973 movie of the same title and stars Anthony Hopkins (Dr. Robert Ford) and Evan Rachel Wood (Dolores Abernathy).

Here are the roles for the six new members of the cast:

Bernard Lowe (Wright): 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.

Harlan Bell (Santoro): 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.

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

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

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

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