Now that HBO’s “Westworld” is finally happening, the show is already working on their cast and just recently, they have added 6 new cast members! They will join Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood, who were the first two official cast members that have been announced to be on the J. J. Abrams-produced HBO TV show. Read on to find out about this casting update.

“Westworld” has just added Jeffrey Wright (“The Hunger Games”) who will play the role of the genius Bernard Lowe, the head of the park’s Programming Division. Bernard is the one who’s on the pursuit of creating artificial people. Rodrigo Santoro (“The 33”), who will also join the show, will play Harlan Bell, the “Most Wanted” criminal in the show.

Former “Raising Hope” star Shannon Woodward has been cast to play the role of Elsie King. Her character is one of the employees working in the programming division of the park under Santoro.

Ingrid Bolso Berdal (“Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters”) will take the role of a criminal named Armistice. Agela Sarayfan (“Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2”) is also set to play a character as Clementine Pennyfeather and last but not the least, Simon Quarterman as Lee Sizemore, the storyteller of the show.

With this new TV show on the works and cast members finally coming together, it looks like that HBO is going on for another hit TV show. The highly- anticipated TV adaptation will air in 2015.
