James Marsden (X-Men) has signed on to HBO’s TV remake of Westworld.
Marsden will play Teddy Flood, “a mysterious new arrival to the small frontier town who quickly proves both his charm — and his talent with a revolver. His pursuit of a local beauty launches him on a dark odyssey.”
Marsden joins Anthony Hopkins who was previously case as the head of Westworld, Dr. Robert Ford. Also cast in the pilot are Jeffrey Wright, Rodrigo Santoro and Shannon Woodward.
The series is inspired by Michael Chrichton’s 1973 sci-fi film and is centered on futuristic theme park where robots go berserk and attack the guests.
