Westworld‘s third season in currently in production, although news from the set has been few and far between. We did receive one exciting tidbit today, however – a new cast member!
According to Entertainment Weekly, Lena Waithe has been cast in an unspecified role. We may not know details yet, but Waithe is an accomplished writer, producer, and actor and will no doubt be a fantastic addition to the series. She joins Aaron Paul (of Breaking Bad fame) as the only newcomers announced for season three so far.
Waithe’s acting credits include Ready Player One, Dear White People, and Master of None. She is also the creator of The Chi on Showtime and won an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series – becoming the first African American woman to do so – for Netflix’s Master of None.
What role do you think she will play next season Westworld fans? Guess away in the comments!
