Casey Affleck joins Interstellar


Like Interstellar wasn’t going to be completely awesome anyway we now have news that Casey Affleck will be joining the cast bringing the power of Affleck to the film. The news comes via him mentioning in an interview with Elle that after his next film wraps up he’ll be shooting a movie with Christopher Nolan. Since the scheduling lines up that means that the movie has to be Interstellar

Considering how stellar (thank you, here all week) the cast is already with Matthew McConaughey taking the lead and the likes of Michael Caine and Anne Hathaway backing him up it should be no surprise that even more big names are popping up. Affleck isn’t much a of a big, tent-pole movie kind of guy, though, so it will be interesting to see if he’s attempting a break into more mainstream fair.
