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:


“Your guess is as good as mine on that one. I think the coolest thing about the show is there’s nothing that’s not possible. The showrunners [Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy] definitely have their ears and their eyes open for what people are going to want to see. So I’m going to guess you’re going to see what you want to see.”

Judging by the strong fandom reaction to the introduction of ‘SW World’ during the show’s first season finale, it’s difficult not to interpret Marsden’s comments as meaning that we very well may take a journey into the newly-introduced Delos park. This prediction is also aided by the fact that the show’s season 2 teaser trailer that dropped during SDCC includes a shot of Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) staring at a dead tiger – not exactly the type of animal you’d find in the Wild Wild West.

Marsden also talks about the show’s 22 Emmy nominations, and what it’s like to be back at Comic-Con. Check out his entire interview below, and let us know what you think!

  1. For most shows I say the actors are full of shite. They know what’s up and just play coy. But I genuinely believe that for this show, they are 100% sincere. I think they have the scripts and have the info in their mind, but literally have no idea what’s going on. Hence the enlightening quote from James references in this post.

    Am beyond ready for this show to return.

    • Chuck,

      You and me both!

      And I definitely agree about the show’s cast legitimately not knowing about what’s to come. Given all the interviews we’ve read through, the common thread is definitely the fact that Jonah and Lisa are incredibly precise about the information they do (and don’t) reveal to the cast and crew. It must be weird shooting scenes when you have no idea how those moments are going to fit into the larger story…
