Sanada Scores Key “Westworld” S2 Role

“The Wolverine,” “Life” and “Sunshine” actor Hiroyuki Sanada has joined the cast of the second season of HBO’s sci-fi western drama “Westworld” in a major recurring role.

Sanada will play Musashi, a character who will be a part of the previously-revealed Samurai World offshoot briefly glimpsed in the first season finale.

Other newcomers this season include Gustaf Skarsgard (“Vikings), Fares Fares (“Tyrant”), Betty Gabriel (“Good Girls Revolt”), Katia Herbers (“The Americans”), Neil Jackson (“Sleepy Hollow”) and Jonathan Tucker (“Kingdom”).

“Westworld” is slated to return to the network early next year.
