Ed Harris tapped for villain role in HBO's 'Westworld'

By Kyle Johnson,

Ed Harris has joined an immensely talented cast for a key villain role in the upcoming HBO series Westworld.

Harris, who most recently lent his voice to the animated sequel Planes: Fire & Rescue, will play The Man in Black, Deadline reports, who is described as the distillation of pure villainy into one man.

The veteran actor last appeared on the network for Game Change, which earned him an Emmy nomination and a Golden Globe win.

Harris joins an already filled to the brim cast, which is lead by Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Woods and the most recently cast James Marsden.

Others set to appear in Westworld includes Jeffrey Wright, Shannon Woodward, Rodrigo Santoro, Eddie Rouse, Simon Quartman and many more.

The HBO drama, based off the 1973 Michael Crichton film, will be executive produced by Bryan Burk, Jerry Weintraub, J.J. Abrams, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. The latter two co-wrote the script for the pilot.

David Coatsworth will line produce and co-executive produce with Susie Ekins, Kathy Lingg and Athena Wickham.
