We sat down with the Westworld star to discuss his future on the show.
Spoiler alert: Jimmi Simpson isn’t done with Westworld yet. At least he hopes he isn’t, as do the rest of us, who marveled at his character’s transformation from earnest, rumpled William into series-defining dark cowboy over the course of the show’s hit first season. Luckily Simpson predicts there’s at least “six or seven” seasons of Westworld plot in the works: “It’s like The Odyssey,” he told us. And we’ll happily go along for the ride. Not only did Westworld deliver gripping performances—shoutout Evan Rachel Wood—and mind-melting plot twists, it was low-key one of the most stylish shows on television. Nearly every character’s costume in the futuristic Wild West theme park balanced historical accuracy with a pinch of contemporary trendiness. And Simpson’s character wore band-collar shirts, patterned silk scarves, black jeans and cowboy boots with the best of them.
We sat down with the actor on set of GQ Style’s Spring fashion portfolio—where he and some of our other favorite guys of the moment rocked the season’s best relaxed tailoring—to discuss what’s next for him, for William, and for his newly reinvigorated personal style. Check it out below, and stay tuned for the full shoot later this week.
