Westworld - Season 2 - Jimmi Simpson Returning



Don't read any more if you haven't watched Season 2!

The actor’s future with the series seemed uncertain after the events in the HBO drama’s first season which revealed — major spoiler alert — that his lovestruck theme park guest character William is actually the nefarious Man in Black (Ed Harris) in his youth. Given that season 1’s flashbacks concluded with this major revelation, it was unclear going into season 2 if the show would continue exploring the early days of the character.

“I mean, yeah, I pop in,” Simpson confirmed to reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Pasadena on Tuesday. “I wish there was exploration between the time when Williams’ heart was broken and we see the result. I want to know how much it takes and how hard he tried to not go there. But I don’t write the story.”

Simpson was also asked about his performance in Netflix’s sensational Black Mirror episode “USS Callister” (aka “The Star Trek episode”) and rumors that the show might revisit its storyline in a future episode. “I’ve heard little buzzes, but I don’t believe anything until I’m working on set,” he said. I would love it.”
