This week, actor Clifton Collins Jr stops by to chat about his role in HBO’s new original series Westworld, based on the 1973 Michael Crichton film, where people can enter a real-world theme park inhabited by AI “hosts” and indulge uninhibited in any fantasy or desire, no matter how dark or noble it might be.
Clifton plays “Lawrence”, a charming but lethal outlaw with a knack for negotiating his way around the various criminal elements of Westworld. While the series does delve into concepts of consciousness and morality, Clifton’s connection is more with finally being able to do a Western, like his grandfather, Pedro Gonzalez Gonzalez had done.
