JIMMI SIMPSON on Westworld’s upcoming season
( spoilers below ) x
Jimmi Simpson may not be as big a part of the upcoming third season of “Westworld” as fans of the younger version of William were hoping.
“I believe for now, Young William, his story is less of a focus there,” Simpson said of his status on the Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy-created HBO sci-fi series, while appearing on the panel for his upcoming Epix drama, “Perpetual Grace, LTD,” during the Television Critics Association press tour Sunday.
TheWrap spoke with Simpson later in the day and asked him to clarify what he meant by that, to which the actor said: “I feel like I can officially say that I have not been invited [back for Season 3].”
However, he said he’s “always” on board to reprise the role of the Man in Black’s (Ed Harris) younger counterpart, which he played during both Seasons 1 and 2.
