As you wait for the next season of “Game Of Thrones,” you might be wondering what else there is to watch on HBO. The short answer is: plenty. If you haven’t caught up with “The Night Of,” now’s the time, and this fall, the network will be unveiling a strong handful of new shows, and the most tantalizing of them all is easily “Westworld.”
The TV series adaptation of Michael Crichton‘s sci-fi film has some strong talent behind it, including none other than Jonathan Nolan (“Interstellar,” “The Dark Knight”) pushing it along with Lisa Joy (“Pushing Daisies,” “Burn Notice”), while J.J. Abrams is among the producers. The ensemble cast is strong too with Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Jimmi Simpson, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Ben Barnes, Simon Quarterman, Angela Sarafyan, Luke Hemsworth and Clifton Collins, Jr. all lending their talents. Damn.
