Actor Ed Harris is reuniting with his The Human Stain co-star Sir Anthony Hopkins to play the villain in upcoming TV series Westworld. The A Beautiful Mind star has been cast as The Man in Black, a character described by producers as "the distillation of pure villainy into one man", reports TheWrap.com.
X-Men actor James Marsden has also joined the line-up for the highly-anticipated show, which is inspired by director Michael Crichton's cult 1973 sci-fi thriller of the same name.
Harris, Hopkins and Marsden will co-star alongside Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright and Rodrigo Santoro, while J.J. Abrams and Jerry Weintraub will serve as executive producers.
The original film starred Richard Benjamin, James Brolin and Yul Bryner, who portrayed creepy robot cowboy Gunslinger.
Singer, former reality TV judge, fashion designer, and mother Jennifer Lopez is adding a new project to her huge resume. The 43-year-old actress has officially signed on to star alongside Antonio Banderas in the buzz-worthy upcoming film The 33.
Based on the true story, the film will revolve around the captivating tale of 33 Chilean miners who were rescued after being trapped underground for 69 days in 2010. Lopez and Banderas join the previously announced actors Martin Sheen and Brazilian actor Rodrigo Santoro in The 33. Mike Medavoy — who gained the rights to this story soon after the miners' rescue — will direct the A-list ensemble cast.
Details on Lopez's character have not been released just yet, but we do know that Banderas is playing the role of Mario Sepulveda, the charismatic miner nicknamed "Super Mario." Santori is portraying another trapped miner, while Sheen will portray the father of one of the laborers. This is Lopez's first big screen role since her action thriller Parker that underwhelmed audiences earlier this year.

The movie couple play expectant parents in the romantic comedy, but Lopez admits their portrayal of a loving husband and wife was a little too much for conservative Brit Jones to bear - and he regularly asked them to tone down their public displays of affection (PDA).
She tells WENN, "I was the envy of the cast. I had Rodrigo Santoro to be my husband. We were an affectionate couple and our very English director Kirk kept telling us to stop.
"I think he was uncomfortable with the PDA. He was like, 'I don't think you guys have to hug and kiss that much!' We were like, 'No, we're Latino and very affectionate.' He was like, 'No, I think we can lay off on that a little bit.' His direction for us was stop touching each other!"
Lopez shot the film just weeks after her split from real-life husband Marc Anthony last summer (11).
