Ed Harris takes Top villain role in HBOs "Westworld" reboot

Sweet. Loved this film when I was a kid. It's ripe for a reboot.

Doesn't sound like he's playing the Yul Brenner role though

Ed Harris is coming to series TV: The Abyss and Apollo 13 actor has signed on as the Big Bad in HBO’s Westworld reboot.
The four-time Oscar nominee’s character is called The Man in Black, and is described as “the distillation of pure villainy into one man.” He joins previously cast star — and fellow series television newcomer—Anthony Hopkins, along with Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright, and Shannon Woodward.

The Warner Bros.-produced sci-fi pilot produced by J.J Abrams, Jerry Weintraub, and Bryan Burk updates Michael Crichton’s 1973 classic film about a theme park where androids fulfill dark human desires. Harris’ description might sound like he’s playing the Yul Brynner killer-cowboy robot role, but it seems like actor Rodrigo Santoro was tapped for that part—and online production rumors suggest The Man in Black is actually a human character who sadistically abuses the androids.

Harris will soon be seen the feature film Run All Night, starring opposite Liam Neeson and Joel Kinnaman. Harris won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Emmy for his work in HBO’s Game Change.

My gut feeling on Ed Harris is that he is a long time customer who is willing to pay a lot of money to go on his own special story-line. That he only appears inhumane to us because we are anthropomorphizing the hosts. He doesn't do that because he sees them in the same way that we would look at an old Teddy Ruxpin, or a character in Grand Theft Auto. Dolores is just the hooker you shoot to get your money back after you kick her out of your car. Harris is jaded and he just doesn't give a shit.

Maybe this was already addressed and I missed it, but how do guests know they're interacting with a host/robot and not another guest? Also, are guests impervious to any kind of physical assault in the park, or just the parks firearms?

I'm really enjoying this show. Like GoT, it's one of those where I'm likely to re-watch the previous episode before watching the new one live.

I'm pretty sure it's just guns, they mentioned something about how dangerous an axe could be.

There are three levels of 'protection' and the rest is suspension of disbelief.

The guns are engineered to treat visitors like paintball [feel and see impact, but no lasting damage], and treat hosts like video game casualties [strike positions start damage subroutines in the unit].

Some hosts are and others aren't programmed for handling of dangerous utilitarian items, such as axes, whips, and fire.

In addition to the 'do no harm' programming, the hosts are programmed to utilize human 'skills' to divert guests from danger. ie, if someone is pushing for a fist fight, or to shove a guest into danger [cliff, animal pen, fire, etc], the host will either try to diffuse the situation or offer him/herself up as the sacrificial victim.

It's a combination of Asimov's three laws of robotics and the lore of the West World franchise. Have you seen the original movie(s)?

I haven't. The guest on guest crime is my biggest question. With things so real at the park, I'm sure jealousy and other emotions are just as real if not more than in a person's real life.

Everything is very heavily monitored. I don't think you're going to get away with anything.

Yeah, I'm not really envisioning getting away with it. People get beat to death going to NFL games. I'd think a couple bros who've "made it", going on a trip for the purpose of rape and pillage would clash every now and again. Like a guest taking an axe to another guest in a spontaneous emotional outburst, maybe even thinking it's a robot, but maybe that's over thinking it.

I'm sure it's possible that there would have been murders committed in the 'history' of the resort. I think it would be very unlikely with all of the monitoring being done by people who would have had substantial training in human behavior though. And the hosts themselves would be programmed to intervene and take the hit instead. The original West World is worth a watch, by the way. Future World is shit though.
