Casey Affleck joins Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar

Casey Affleck/Christopher Nolan

The expectations for Christopher Nolan's sci-fi film INTERSTELLAR are already extremely high but the director isn't helping things by hiring a bunch of fantastic actors and actresses for the movie. In an interview with Elle, Casey Affleck revealed that he has signed on to the intriguing sounding project as well.

I’ve got a movie coming out at Thanksgiving called Out of the Furnace, and I’m going to work on a Chris Nolan movie in the fall.

Since Nolan is just concentrating on INTERSTELLAR right now it's a pretty safe bet that Casey Affleck is talking about that film. He joins Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine and Bill Irwin.

INTERSTELLAR involves time travel and alternate dimensions in a story that sees a group of explorers travel through a wormhole. The script is based on scientific theories developed by a Kip Thorne, a theoretical physicist, a gravitational physicist and astrophysicist at Caltech.

Casey Affleck is a fantastic addition to INTERSTELLAR. His performances in films like THE KILLER INSIDE ME and THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD were stellar and I hope he really gets to shine in a big movie like this.

INTERSTELLAR will be in theaters November 7th, 2014.

YES! YES! YES!

Casey Affleck is one of the most underrated actor in all of Hollywood and needs to begin to get higher profile roles! I am immediately interested in anything he is attached to and this could be the movie that does for him what Inception did for JGL. Very good news and even more excited for this!

Totally agreed that The Assassination of Jesse James is such an underrated movie.

But how about its soundtrack by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis? Probably one of the most haunting scores (yet so beautiful) to come out in quite some time. They didn't even get nominated for Oscar.

Casey Affleck is like ketchup. You aren't going to make a meal out of it, but it makes goddamn near everything better.

Good addition, too bad Wally Phister's not filming, but Hoyte Van Hoytema is an awesome substitute...

Read this on Nolan Fans early in the morning. I think he may steal the show in this one.

I think this could do for Affleck what Inception did for JGL...here's to hoping. It can't be a bad move for his career to be in a Nolan movie!

Great actor, he absolutely kicked ass in Gone Baby Gone. This cast looks great and Nolan hasn't disappointed yet. Hopefully this film will match Inception for scale.

Should of won the Oscar for The Assassination of Jesse James. He and Pitt were both incredible in it and the movie itself if criminally under seen and underrated.
