Gustaf Skarsgård Westworld Season 2

Vikings' Gustaf Skarsgård Joins Westworld Season 2 as Series Regular

Westworld has issued three more park passes ahead of Season 2.

Vikings actor Gustaf Skarsgård is set to join HBO’s Emmy-nominated sci-fi Western as a series regular, TVLine has confirmed. Additionally, Fares Fares (Tyrant) has come aboard as a regular and Betty Gabriel (Good Girls Revolt) is set to recur.

Skarsgård will play Karl Strand, a white-collar guy comfortable in the field, while Fares takes on the role of Antoine Costa, a tech expert with an objective perspective. Gabriel will be playing Maling, who is trying to restore order on the ground.

The trio join previously announced Season 2 additions Neil Jackson (Sleepy Hollow), Jonathan Tucker (Kingdom, Hannibal) and Katja Herbers (The Leftovers).

Westworld returns to HBO with Season 2 in 2018.

  1. I love Gustaf, happy for him for this role!….but this makes me worried for Loki…He’s so great in Vikings!

    I have been waiting for Floki to die for years and now this! Here’s hoping Gustaf’s character on Westworld is infinitely more likable.

  3. Sam says:

    yes yes yes please!

  4. Zee says:

    Oh wow! Cooking is this cute?

  5. Steve F. says:

    Hope he gets to do the Floki laugh on Westworld! (That said, I wonder about his time left on Vikings…)

    In longer article it says G-man will be playing Floki through season 5 at least but yes he is aging and I feel the show is going a bit more Walking Dead where it’s going to focus more on groups separately. They seem to be leaning towards taking Floki’s character on more of a 9 th century Flóki path. Rollo is supposed to be back but he’s doing another series….these guys can multitask, lol
