Character-wise how does HBO’s 10-episode Westworld series compare to Michael Crichton‘s 1973 original? Ben Barnes and Jimmy Simpson have the James Brolin and Richard Benjamin roles (i.e., randy veteran, hesitant newbie) but they’re not as central this time around. Ed Harris is playing Yul Brynner. James Marsden is apparently a replicant gunslinger. Evan Rachel Wood is playing Dolores Abernathy, a female variation of Rutger Hauer‘s Roy in Blade Runner, a replicant who’s unhappy about having recently discovered she’s not human. It appears as if Anthony Hopkins is playing a combination of Richard Attenborough‘s character in Jurassic Park and Dr. Henry Frankenstein. Jeffrey Wright is playing Hopkins’ top administrator.
