John Lithgow headed with Nolan into the Interstellar

John Lithgow cast in Christopher Nolan's upcoming sci-fi film.

The casting news coming from Christopher Nolan’s approaching Interstellar continues to be more and more intriguing. With a cast that already includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain Michael Caine and Casey Affleck, The Wrap now reports that another Oscar nominee is joining Nolan in the stars. John Lithgow of The World According to Garp and more recently, Dexter, has been tapped to play an undisclosed role in the mysterious sci-fi epic. The brain worm-teasing premise pertains to a group of explorers who must travel to the furthest reaches of the universe through wormholes. The concept was inspired from ideas purported by theoretical physicist Kip Thorne in his book, Wormholes, Time Machines and the Weak Energy Condition. What exactly do the Nolan brothers have planned? I suspect we will not fully know until the picture’s release in November 2014. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for all news updates related to the world of geek.
