Development News - 'Westworld' Adds James Marsden and Eddie Rouse; David Rashe Joins 'Impastor'

Development News - August 8, 2014

HBO's Westworld and TV Land's Impastor.

  • David Rasche (Veep, Black Box) has been cast on the comedy pilot starring Michael Rosenbaum. He will play Owen Schmidt, a businessman and President of Loomis Lutheran Church. Although he welcomes Buddy (Rosenbaum) as the new pastor, he's warily suspicious of this outsider and quite baffled by his utter lack of scriptural knowledge.
  • James Marsden (X-Men) and Eddie Rouse (Rat Pack Rat) have joined the cast of the drama pilot starring Anthony Hopkins. Marsden will play Teddy Flood, a mysterious new arrival to a small frontier town who quickly proves both his charm and his talent with a revolver. Rouse will play Kissy, an American Indian who deals cards, and contraband, from the town saloon, making him an expert in games both on and off the cards table.
  • Also, joining the pilot today in unspecified roles are Demetrius Grosse, Kyle Bornheimer, Currie Graham, Lena Georgas, Steven Ogg and Timothy Lee DePriest.
