It's been a good long while since we've heard anything concrete (or metal?) from Bad Robot's proposed HBO adaptation of 1973 sci-fi classic 'Westworld,' but with 'True Detective' raising the network's bar for casting, the J.J.

Joining the 'Westworld' pilot are none other than Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood, with 'X-Men' star James Marsden in talks for a role as well.
