Bad Robot (“Almost Human”) and Jonathan Nolan (“Interstellar”) already have one collaboration on the air, CBS’ “Person of Interest.”
Hopkins plays Westworld’s genius creator. Yul Brynner lookalike Ed Harris plays the robot gunslinger. Evan Rachel Wood plays a 19th century prairie dweller who didn’t get the memo explaining she’s actually a fembot.
