Baton Rouge native Louis Herthum has been moved to series regular for the second season of the hit HBO show Westworld.

Admittedly, the first season of Westworld is still on my never-ending list of shows to watch, but I've heard nothing but great things about it. I've heard from multiple sources that HBO was setting this show up to take over the "much hyped, and talked about show" for the nearing end of Game of Thrones. So far, it seems to be working.

That being said, Louis Herthum was in 6 out of the 10 episodes of the first season, playing Peter Abernathy. Being moved to series regular should put his name in the credits next to the likes of Sir Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, and more!

Herthum has graced your television sets before, as he's had roles in True Blood, Justified, True Detective, Narcos, and much more. He's also been in a Super Bowl commercial (seen below).

Congrats to the Louisiana boy for all your success!
