Otto will play Virginia Pittman, the head of the park’s Quality Assurance department whose brutal honesty with her colleagues and her ruthless efficiency in dealing with malfunctioning “property” have made her a formidable and unpredictable power player in Westworld.

Inspired by Michael Crichton’s 1973 movie of the same name, Westworld‘s creative team includes exec producers/writers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, and exec producers J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub and Bryan Burk.

As previously reported, Anthony Hopkins stars as Dr. Robert Ford, the park’s head honcho who has “unorthodox methods” of bringing his visions to life. The enviable cast also includes James Marsden, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton and Jeffrey Wright.

Otto’s additional credits include The Starter Wife and the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

    Good cast. I’m a little skeptical the premise can work long term. Better as a limited run.
