Anthony Hopkins joins cast of HBO’s “Westworld” Pilot

Falling under the category of “remakes that don’t bother Trae,” some of you may know that there is a pilot in production for HBO based off the 1973 film “Westworld.”

Well, TVLine reports that the latest addition to the Westworld pilot’s cast is none other than Academy Award winning actor Anthony Hopkins.

Hopkins will reportedly play the owner of the robot themed amusement park (where robots end up turning on guests and killing them) that is Westworld’s setting. Hopkins is an amazing actor who hasn’t been afraid to work in genre productions, so this in my mind bodes well for the remake’s production.

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
