Deadline has reported that Topher Grace has joined the all-star cast of Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi epic Interstellar. The cast already includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, Bill Irwin, Mackenzie Foy, John Lithgow, and Ellen Burstyn.
Specific plot details are being kept under wraps but it has been reported that the film follows a group of explorers who travel through a wormhole and into another dimension. Topher Grace, mostly known for That 70s Show and Spider-Man 3, is definitely an out-of-left-field casting choice.
Interstellar will be released in conventional and IMAX theaters on November 7th, 2014. Filming is expected to begin this fall. What do you think of the latest casting choice?
UPDATE: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wes Bentley has joined the cast in, reportedly filling the final vacant spot. Wes Bentley has recently appeared in The Hunger Games and next appears in a slew of other projects including Lovelace and Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups.
