James Marsden on His ‘Westworld’ Sex Scenes: ‘I Have Sex With My Eyes’
Westworld is coming back tomorrow but James Marsden, who plays Teddy in the series, is still questioning one thing: why hasn’t his character had a sex scene yet?
HBO is known for not shying away from nudity and racy sex scenes since it’s not constricted by strict FCC regulations. But Westworld, which has had some surprising twists in addition to those aforementioned risqué sex scenes, has not given Teddy one so far.
After trading non-descriptive spoilers about the show on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the two talked about the lack of sex scenes for Teddy.
“I was anticipating it. I guess nobody wants to see me have sex in the show,” said Marsden on the late night talk show. However he did offer an alternative idea. “I have sex with the eyes. I use my eyes. Since they were taken from me in X-Men, I use them,” referring to his role as Cyclops in 20th Century Fox’s superhero films.
As for the show’s next season, Marsden was able to offer some other info on what viewers can expect.
“I can tell you that it feels a lot bigger than the first season. The first season felt like we were setting up this world, introducing these characters and these themes,” he said. “Now…the leashes are off and the floodgates are open.” which as Colbert points out may or may not be metaphors about the sci-fi series.
But there’s still hope for Teddy to receive his sex scene. Westworld’s season two premieres on April 22 on HBO.
