William “Man in Black” is a main character in HBO’s Westworld, played by Jimmi Simpson. William is a first time guest to the park. He arrives with a Westworld veteran, his soon-to-be brother-in-law, Logan. Before arriving at Westworld, William was promoted to an Executive Vice President at Delos (the company owned by Logan’s family). In the first season finale, William is revealed to be a younger Man in Black, played by Ed Harris.

The Man in Black is a Westworld veteran who has been visiting the park for over 30 years. He believes that the original park creator, Arnold, hid some mystery in the park before he died 34 years earlier, and is focused on finding out what this secret is. In “The Bicameral Mind“, the Man in Black reveals that he is the majority shareholder, and thus, the owner of Westworld.

The Man in Black and Robert Ford are on a first-name basis with each other. In the episode “Contrapasso“, he greets Ford by saying, “How’m I doin’, Robert?” Likewise, in “The Bicameral Mind”, Ford greets him by saying, “William, so you found the center of the maze.”.
