Report: ‘Westworld’ Season 2 Adds ‘Fargo’ Big Bad Zahn McClarnon
Westworld will make its grand debut at Comic-Con next week, and – though Season 2 won’t bring itself online until 2018 – it would make sense to have new cast in order. Latest to join the ranks is a familiar Fargo felon and Longmire star, as confirmed by fellow cast.
According to Season 1 star and newly-elevated series regular Louis Herthum, Season 2 has added Herthum’s former Longmire co-star Zahn McClarnon to the cast in an unknown role. Fargo fans will likely recognize the actor as Season 2 villain Hanzee, who was subsequently revealed as a major player in Season 1.
HBO has not yet detailed the role, but here’s Herthum confirming the casting with a similar message tweeted to fellow Season 2 addition Katja Herbers:
Update: Herthum understandably deleted the tweet, but you can see a screencap over at WestworldWatchers:
Elsewhere of Westworld Season 2, producers have kept the lion’s share of details under wraps, though the 2018 “Journey Into Night” is expected to answer practical questions about the park, potentially even a date for the show’s setting. Ed Harris will be back to play Season 2 on extreme mode (no guarantee for William), while both Talulah Riley and Louis Herthum have been upped to series regulars. We’ll also finally get answers on the mysterious “SW” park, and hopefully learn what became of poor Elsie and Stubbs.
We’ll see what other Westworld Season 2 details shake out at Comic-Con, but stay tuned for the latest in the meantime.
