James Marsden on Westworld Season Two: “You’re going to see what you want to see”

Even with this year’s San Diego Comic-Con now in the rearview mirror, interviews with Westworld’s cast from the event continue to trickle in.

The latest interview comes courtesy of Access Hollywood, who had the chance to speak to James Marsden, responsible for bringing the android cowboy Teddy Flood to life.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the vagueness of Marsden’s comments fall in line with what we’ve come to expect in regards to answers about the upcoming season. That being said, the actor does spark some excitement for what fans can expect. When asked if there’s any chance we’ll go back to “SW World” (which can be interpreted as either Samurai Would or Shogun World…or maybe something else!), Marsden offers the following:

Talking Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman with Westworld the Podcast!

dolores-the-bicameral-mind-episode-10-westworld

I recently had the pleasure of joining Craig Carter and Heather Barefoot at Westworld the Podcast for a discussion of a another western drama series – Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman. Before Westworld, we didn’t often see strong, independent female protagonists in the western genre, but Dr. Michaela Quinn certainly set the stage for characters like Dolores and Maeve. If you are unfamiliar with the series, it aired on CBS for six seasons, from January 1, 1993 to May 16, 1998, and followed the story of  Dr. Michaela “Mike” Quinn – a “physician who leaves Boston in search of adventure in the Old American West and who settles in Colorado Springs, Colorado.”

Jimmi Simpson and Ben Barnes Hint at Possible Westworld Season 2 Return

William and Logan

Fans of Westworld had a lot to be excited about this past weekend, from the panel at San Diego Comic-Con, to the release of a season 2 teaser trailer featuring brand new footage from the upcoming season.

Many of the actors also spent some time reflecting on their experiences over Westworld’s first season, and looking forward to what’s in store for the show. Two of these actors include Jimmi Simpson (William) and Ben Barnes (Logan), who are both featured in season one’s storyline that takes place 30 years before the present.

Given the fact that the 30-years-prior storyline seems to have fulfilled its purpose over the course of the first season, there has been much speculation as to whether or not we’d ever see William or Logan again. However, Simpson and Barnes have both shed some light on this question, and their answers seem to imply that we haven’t seen the last of either of them in the show.

Tessa Thompson Confirms Her Return to Westworld for Season 2 in New Interview!

Charlotte Hale on Westworld

Love her or hate her, you can’t deny that Tessa Thompson’s Charlotte Hale is a magnetic presence on Westworld. Smart and powerful, she holds her own against both the Man in Black (Ed Harris) and Dr. Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins). Thompson will be playing a different kind of powerful woman as Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok. Time brings us an interview with Thompson from San Diego Comic-Con, and while the Westworld finale left us unsure about Charlotte’s fate, she reveals her return for season two and discusses her upcoming film.
