The Prince Caspian actor has joined HBO’s upcoming sci-fi drama, which takes place at a futuristic theme park where robots go nuts and attack the guests.
Per EW.com, Barnes will replace Once Upon a Time‘s Eion Bailey in the role of Logan, a louche bachelor and veteran Westworld guest whose hedonistic romp through the park is motivated by self-indulgence and a desire to help his friend, William.
Bailey, whose casting was reported just one week ago, had to leave Westworld due to a scheduling conflict.
