HBO’s sexually explicit Westworld casting contract
It looks like HBO’s TV adaption of the 1973 film Westworld is shaping up to be pretty damn raunchy.
Judging by the rules published by actors’ union SAG-AFTRA, the extras on the upcoming Westworld production will be required to perform some rather ‘explicit’ sexual acts.
See an excerpt of the agreement below:
By accepting this Project assignment, you may be required to do any of the following:
appear fully nude;
wear a pubic hair patch;
perform genital-to-genital touching;
have your genitals painted;
simulate oral sex with hand-to-genital touching;
contort to form a table-like shape while being fully nude;
pose on all fours while others who are fully nude ride on your back …
The list continues.
Just what the heck are they looking to produce, here?!
The folks at HBO – who have said that the casting agreement was created by an outside extras casting vendor – have described their upcoming adaptation of Westworld as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin”.
The show premieres in 2016, and stars Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, Ed Harris, James Marsden, Thandie Newton and Jeffrey Wright.
The original Westworld was given a ’15’ rating by the British Board of Film Classification for containing strong violence.
