Vincent Cassel will reportedly be in the third season of HBO’s hit show “Westworld.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cassel is joining the show as a villain. Other than that fact, no real details are known at this time about what his character will do.

American audiences will best know Cassel from “Jason Bourne” and “Ocean’s 12.”

It’s too bad we don’t know any more details, but I’m willing to take whatever I can get at this point when it comes to the final season of “Westworld.”

It’s been forever since we last had new episodes. We all know HBO likes to take its sweet time in producing new content. It’s just the way the network is.

At least we’re getting a solid idea of the people involved with Season 3. All the regulars other than Jimmi Simpson appear to be set to go. Aaron Paul has also joined the show and there’s been rumors of Antonio Banderas signing up. (RELATED: Jimmi Simpson Says He’s ‘Not Invited’ Back For Season Three Of ‘Westworld’)

Throwing in Cassel is a great decision from HBO. He’s not super popular among Americans, but his mainstream stuff has been strong. I would love to see some scenes between him and Ed Harris.

Westworld” Season 3 will get here in 2020, and I can’t wait. 2019 might feel like a drag, but it’ll all be worth it once next year rolls around with new episodes of the hit show.

Can’t wait to find out what Dolores, the MiB and the rest of the characters are up to.
