FRENCH actor Vincent Cassel has joined the third season of acclaimed HBO series Westworld.

As is typical with all things Westworld related, details of the character he will play are being kept firmly under wraps.

But a joint statement released by showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy said: “We’re incredibly excited to work with Vincent Cassel. We’ve been long-time fans of his and are thrilled for him to join the Westworld team.”

The third season of the show isn’t due to hit screens until next year (2020) but shooting has commenced.

It is expected to expand the story beyond the realms of the park even further, given that season two saw Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and her fellow hosts take their clash against humanity to a whole new level and enter the real world.

Cassel joins fellow new recruits Lena Waithe and Aaron Paul.
