Chicken-Fried News: James Marsden, mysterious sharpshooter 

(Madeline Hancock)

Have you enjoyed watching native Oklahoma actor James Marsden kick ass as Cyclops in the last four X-Men movies? Well, you’re in luck; he has been cast in a new sci-fi show on HBO.

Westworld is about a theme park full of androids who “fulfill human desires,” according to Entertainment Weekly’s website. We’re not sure exactly what that means, but it certainly sounds intriguing. The show’s page on IMDB.com says that the theme park simulates life in Roman and Medieval times as well as the old Wild West — until something goes awry. Dun dun dun!

Marsden will play newcomer Teddy Flood, a man with loads of charm and some impressive pistol skills who also happens to be shrouded in mystery. Oh yeah, and he falls for a local babe, which causes him some trouble — what else would it do?

Marsden will be joining an impressive cast including Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood and Ed Harris. Westworld is based on a 1973 sci-fi Western film written by novelist Michael Crichton and is currently is pre-production.
