Westworld – HBO

Westworld – HBO

A gripping story brought to you by three of the finest producers in entertainment and starring one of the most outstanding casts ever assembled. Sounds too good to be true, right? Wrong. HBO is set to bring an adaptation of the 1973 sc-fi epic Westworld to the small screen with an all-star creative team featuring the “big three” of  J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, Lost, Star Trek Into Darkness), Jonathan Nolan (The Dark Knight Rises, Interstellar, Person of Interest) and Jerry Weintraub (Ocean’s Eleven, The Karate Kid, Behind the Candelabra) and casting calls for roles are happening now.

Westworld is a high-concept science fiction series set in a theme park manned by robots that simulate the experience of living in various historic times such as medieval, and old west for it’s guests. When the central computer that controls the park goes down, the humans find themselves on the run from the self-aware robots. The fabulous cast will be lead by Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins (Silence Of The Lambs, Thor: The Dark World, How the Grinch Stole Christmas),

2-time Golden Globe nominee Evan Rachel Wood (True Blood, The Wrestler, Across the Universe), 2-time Screen Actors Guild Award nominee James Marsden (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, Lee Daniels’ The Butler), BAFTA Film Award winner Thandie Newton (Mission: Impossible II, The Pursuit of Happyness, Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles), Shannon Woodward (Raising Hope, The Haunting of Molly Hartley, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), Golden Globe winner Jeffrey Wright (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, Boardwalk Empire, Angels in America), Screen Actors Guild Award winner Miranda Otto (The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, War of the Worlds, I, Frankenstein) and 4-time Oscar nominee Ed Harris (National Treasure: Book of Secrets, Apollo 13, The Truman Show). It is a truly incredible group and one that could soon be a part of!

  5. Caleb Wishloff

    My name is Caleb Wishloff, I am a 16 year old teenage boy. I am around 6 feet tall, 170 pounds and I have a really fit build. I have short hair that can be styled in various ways. I have green eyes and I have a slight tan. I grew up always making videos and spfx, I have come a long way from home videos. I am actually an amateur film maker, I watched over 30000 hours in movies since I was 4 or 5, Anthony Hopkins is an amazing actor and it would be a honour to work with him. I have a lot of knowledge on his acting style and even the science fiction idea behind the show and plus I have a huge amount of knowledge in acting and film making. Acting has always been a passion of mine and when I heard about this casting call I didn’t even have words for how I felt. I believe I could be a huge asset to this show, I have gone through a lot of hardship in my life, I lost my mom when I was twelve. This in turn lets me use true emotion to fortify a scene. I have acted in a lot of short films, and I have even went to film and acting camp. I really love the idea behind this show and believe me when I tell you I know what I am doing I just need my shot to prove it. I have a great deal of knowledge in spfx, and makeup. I would also be interested in just working on set as a gaffer, boom operator or even just being allowed to watch and learn. I am not looking to be paid for my time. I just want experience.

    I have a lot of other experience In other things, I can provide them upon request

    If you guys are interested I believe I could benefit you a great deal, just give me a call or email me if you are interested.
    Thanks a lot, even for just considering my proposal, if you cant find a rle to accept me in no worries.
