This may possibly be a rumor. But let’s hope it isn’t because John Lithgow is awesome.
An individual that is involved with Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar project told TheWrap that John Lithgow signed onto the film. At this time, neither Paramount nor a representative for Lithgow has responded to his supposed signing onto the film.
Lithgow will be teaming up with fellow stars Casey Affleck, Ellen Burstyn, Michael Caine, Timothee Chalamet, Jessica Chastain, Mackenzie Foy, Anne Hathaway, Bill Irwin, and Matthew McConaughey for Nolan’s new science-fiction movie. Details about Lithgow’s role are up to any one’s guess right now. We will have to see once Paramount or a representative for Lithgow confirms this insider knowledge.
Lithgow’s credentials are pretty good right now as well. He won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for his role as a villain during the fourth season of Showtime’s Dexter. It sounds like he’s been doing pretty well since his days on 3rd Rock from the Sun.[via TheWrap]
