Westworld isn't your typical amusement park. Intended for rich vacationers, the futuristic park allows its visitors to live out their most primal fantasies with the robotic "hosts." However, the robotic hosts have evolved an artificial consciousness that is similar to, yet diverges from, human consciousness. No matter how illicit the fantasy may be, there are no consequences for the park's guests, allowing for any wish to be indulged; but there is a price to be paid.
In the first episode, Dr. Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins) engages in conversation with one of the first, now-defunct robots to occupy Westworld. The robot is played, in a cameo, by a heavily made-up Michael Wincott, who appeared as serial killer Ed Gein opposite Hopkins in Hitchcock (2012) (with Hopkins in the title role). See more »
