Ed Harris Plays Villain In Westworld


edhThe HBO series reboot of “Westworld” – Michael Crichton’s 1973 sci-fi movie tale of a fantasy robot theme park gone astray – has added Ed Harris in the signature Yul Brynner role of The Man in Black, the ultimate bad guy in the story. Harris is joined by Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood in the other lead roles.

Crichton passed away in 2008 but was the writer of several sci-fi classics beginning with “The Andromeda Strain” and going throughout the “Jurassic Park” franchise. In “Westworld”, he depicts a fantasy camp gone wrong as wealthy people on holiday select a wild west theme for their fantasy robot theme park adventure – only to have a robot malfunction and go rogue. The HBO series – being produced by JJ Abrams – will expand that concept to the world’s entire existence being manipulated by artificial intelligence madness in a “Stepford Wives”-like manner.
