James Bond Easter Egg in ‘Westworld’

Eagle eyed Bond fans were in for a neat surprise when they tunned into the season finale of HBO’s hit drama series, ‘Westworld’.

In the opening scene of ‘The Bicameral Mind’, Head of the Westworld Programming Division Bernard Lowe, played by Jeffrey Wright, can be seen wearing a blue limited James Bond edition OMEGA Seamaster complete with gunbarrel motif on the dial.

To Bond fans, Jeffrey Wright is best known for his appearances as iconic CIA agent Felix Leiter in ‘Casino Royale’ (2006) and ‘Quantum of Solace’ (2008).

At present, there has been no word on whether Wright slipped the watch into the scene himself, or whether it was a conscious decision between the shows producers and costume department.

Fans also noted a possible homage to ‘Goldfinger’ during episode five, ‘Contrapasso’. Right before the now infamous orgy scene, there is a striking shot of a number of naked, gold-painted female hosts, which instantly evokes images of a naked, gold-painted Shirley Eaton in ‘Goldfinger’. Whether a deliberate reference or not, it is hard to see a gold-painted female figure and not think of the famous scene from 1964 film.
