Who Plays Wyatt On 'Westworld'? Sorin Brouwers Is A New Face
One of the many layers of HBO's hit show Westworld is the hosts' back stories. These little histories that the park's designers give to their robot creations are what ground the host, and are the foundations around which the host's personality is created, layer by layer. It was only recently (if you subscribe to the linear timeline theory) that Teddy was given a real backstory. (And by real, I mean one with actual details rather than vague descriptions.) His revolved around a character named Wyatt, basically the personification of all evil, who has since become something of a bogeyman to the other hosts. But who plays Wyatt on Westworld? We've only gotten a couple of quick views of his face so far, and it's not one I immediately recognize.
Wyatt is played by an actor named Sorin Brouwers, who is based in L.A. and has been acting for around 10 years. Though he hasn't had any major starring roles as of yet, he's been a successful commercial actor for years. Brouwers has appeared in several commercials for everything from Budweiser to Hyundai to the lottery to being a Sirius XM radio spokesperson. He's also appeared in a few video games, including Mortal Kombat, and has had small spots in films and TV shows spanning the past decade, including Awkward on MTV and The Brink.
Brouwers may not have had a huge amount of high profile success as of right now, but assuming his character's role expands and he appears in more episodes (which seems highly probable at this point), Westworld could just be Brouwers' big break. Maybe this will be the show that launches his career into superstardom, which would mean that you were there when a star was born. It would be like watching George Clooney on those first episodes of ER when he was just an attractive, struggling actor.
Of course, there's also a chance that, as the character of Wyatt expands, the show will decide to recast the role for who knows what reason. (Probably just to mess with our minds even further.) I'm not saying that's going to happen necessarily, but I wouldn't put it past this show to try and confuse its viewers in as many ways as possible. What we can be sure of, though, is that we haven't seen the last of Wyatt or his dastardly plans for the other hosts.
