The high-profile drama project “Westworld” at HBO continues to make news with each new casting announcement. Deadline.com reports that the HBO pilot has added Mirando Otto, who co-starred as Eowyn in the “Lord of the Rings” movies.
The project, from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot and Jonathan Nolan of CBS’s “Person of Interest,” will feature Otto as Virginia Pittman, who runs a quality assurance department and deals with malfunctioning property. The project is based on the 1973 Michael Crichton science-fiction film about an amusement park where a killer robot goes rogue.
Otto joins Ed Harris, Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood and James Marsden in the project.
