Westworld has some new company. Deadline reports Hiroyuki Sanada has joined season two of the HBO TV show.
Based on the 1973 movie, the sci-fi Western is set in a futuristic theme park where visitors pay a lot of money to act out their Wild West fantasies while interacting with lifelike robot “hosts.” The cast includes Jeffrey Wright, Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Tessa Thompson, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Jimmi Simpson, Rodrigo Santoro, and Shannon Woodward.
Few details have been released about Sanada’s character on Westworld, but he will be playing someone named Musashi. He joins fellow new cast members Gustaf Skarsgård, Fares Fares, and Betty Gabriel.
