‘Westworld’ Q&A Shut Down After Fan Asks Creator To Read His Script

Westworld HBO Lisa Joy Jonathan NolanThe Q&A segment of the Westworld panel at Tribeca Film Festival was abruptly shut down after just one question after an audience member asked one of the most drawn out and awkward questions possible.

At the end of almost every panel or reading at any sort of convention, there is a Q&A section. That section, while perplexing in nature, is a staple at any sort of panel, no matter the nature. While these sections are usually boring and awkward, the Q&A section at the Westworld panel at Tribeca Film Festival might take the cake for the most awkward.

The one person to ask a question seemed to be a culmination of all the worst aspects of the Q&A sections. The man seems to ramble, beginning his question with praise for both the show and the actors and how much it inspired him and his brother. He then goes on a tangent about the movie Interstellar and how he and his brother also loved that. However, the piece de resistance was his hope to share the screenplay him and his brother wrote with the crew. Specifically, Westworld co-creator Jonathan Nolan. With viewers almost able to feel the discomfort from their computer screens, the man puts forth one last attempt to salvage the question as the moderator shut him down. As he left, he proudly proclaimed “Goodnight everybody!” in true Yakko Warner style.

The full panel can be seen below. Jump to around the 50-minute mark to watch this disaster.

Entertainment Weekly has just unveiled a series of images tied to the new season of HBO’s Westworld, and they make it abundantly clear that things are getting out of control fast.

In the second season of Westworld, the hosts of the titular park are achieving sentience and are leading an uprising after decades of being mutilated and sexually violated for the consequence-free pleasures of the park guests. As predicted, the violent delights result in violent ends when the AIs start attacking the park’s managers in a battle for the beginning of a new people.

Included in the photoshoot are several portraits of the show’s central characters and production stills from upcoming episodes. Most of the major players from the show’s initial season are returning for the darker, bloodier follow-up.

The series stars Sir Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Jimmi Simpson, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Ben Barnes, Hiroyuki Sanada, Gustaf Skarsgård, Fares Fares, Betty Gabriel, Jonathan Tucker, Neil Jackson, Katja Herbers, Simon Quarterman, Angela Sarafyan, Clifton Collins, Jr., Luke Hemsworth, and Louis Herthum.

Westworld will return to HBO on April 22.
