Westworld Promotes Louis Herthum

These violent delights have rather lucrative ends: Westworld has upped Louis Herthum to a series regular ahead of Season 2, our sister site Deadline reports.

The actor appeared in six episodes of the HBO sci-fi drama’s first season, playing host Peter Abernathy, father of Evan Rachel Wood’s Dolores.

Herthum recently was cast as Pat Halstead, father of Chicago Med‘s Dr. Will Halstead (and Chicago P.D.‘s Det. Jay Halstead) on the NBC medical drama. His episode will air on Thursday, April 13 (9/8c).

His other TV credits include True BloodLongmireNarcos and Breaking Bad.

Herthum’s promotion follows a recent, similar bump for Talulah Riley, who plays host Angela.

    He was a fascinating presence in his one big episode. I was sad to see him get decommissioned and put in storage for most of the season, and I’m excited to see him make a comeback.

    He was great on WestWorld. I’m so glad that they are making him a series regular.

    I am so happy to read this! One of his monologues was actually the moment I was 100% captured by the show – his acting, both verbally and physically (how he emoted with his eyes for example) drew me right into the scene.
