For HBO’s first Super Bowl commercial in 20 years, they chose an incredible Westworld trailer. Craig and Jake break it down and discuss charging bulls, the Ghost Nation, what their favorite characters are up to, and their favorite moments.
So much has happened this offseason, we thought it would be good to recap everything. Craig and Heather discuss Creative Arts Emmy wins, Funko bobble heads, season 2 teasers, returning characters, and new cast members.
The season 2 trailer for Westworld dropped at Comic-Con. Craig, Jake, and Brian discuss their general impressions (1:42), the bloody player piano, Bernard, and the tiger (7:11), the man hanging from the tree (9:55), Sizemore and Maeve (11:08), Dolores and Teddy mowing down guests (13:09), dead people and dune buggies (15:25), and The Man in Black (17:35).
Louis Herthum is the breakout star from Westworld. His performance as Peter Abernathy set the tone for what would be one of the best new shows on television.
Craig was able to interview him and they discussed what is was like growing up in Baton Rouge (1:52), how he decided he wanted to get into acting (7:10), the original Westworld (12:50), how he found out about the HBO show and his preparation for the role (14:33), his time on set and his cold storage experiences (32:23), the reception from his incredible performance (43:21), praise from Ed Harris and Emmy nominations (46:52), season 2 (51:15), his experiences as a fan of the show (56:42), and a little Shakespeare (1:00:57).
A couple days ago, Redditor Brew_Swillis (great username) published a post titled "Can we end the endless maze image posts? It was mostly met with comments such as “welcome to the off season.” However, there was one comment from Jonathan Nolan—THE Jonathan Nolan.
It read simply “nope” along with a link to an image. As you can see below, it looks like the script for the season two premiere. And the title appears to be “Journey Into Night,” which you may remember as Ford’s final narrative in the season one finale. So if you’re keeping track, the show runner behind Westworld casually dropped the title of the season two premiere in a Reddit discussion thread. How cool is that?
