Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood Join HBO's 'Westworld' Remake

July 23, 2014


As any Jurassic Park fan knows, at the heart of any Michael Crichton-devised technologically-advanced theme park should lie a snowy-haired British actor there to learn a morbid lesson about playing God. So, for HBO and Bad Robot's Westworld series remake, Anthony Hopkins will fill that function. He has reportedly signed on to the pilot to play Dr. Robert Ford, "the brilliant, taciturn and complicated creative director, chief programmer and chairman of the board of Westworld"--his android-filled amusement park that goes dangerously awry. James Marsden is also said to be up for a lead role, while Evan Rachel Wood is locked to play a sweet, naïve farm girl who doesn't even realize she's just a robot filling space in an artificial recreation of the Wild West. But who isn't?
