Westworld - James Marsden and Eddie Rouse and More Join Cast

James Marsden is entering a brave new Westworld.

The X-Men/Anchorman actor has joined HBO’s sci-fi drama pilot (from exec producers J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub and Bryan Burk and writers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy) as a series regular, TVLine has learned.

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.

Inspired by Michael Crichton’s 1973 movie of the same name, Westworld revolves around a futuristic theme park where robots go berserk and attack the guests.

Rouse will play Kissy (short for Kisecawchuck), an American Indian who deals cards, and contraband, from the town saloon, making him an expert in games both on and off the card table.

Also booked roles in Westworld are Demetrius Grosse (Banshee, Justified), Kyle Bornheimer (She’s Out of My League, Bachelorette), Currie Graham (Murder in the First, NYPD Blue), Lena Georgas (Prime Suspect, Ray Donovan), Steven Ogg (Grand Theft Auto V) and Timothy Lee DePriest.
