Bill Irwin

Christopher Nolan's INTERSTELLAR has a very impressive cast and it appears another great actor is climbing aboard the much anticipated sci-fi film. The Wrap is reporting that Bill Irwin is set to join INTERSTELLAR but (of course) there is no word on who he will be playing in the film.

Irwin is mostly known for his stage and clown work but has appeared in many films throughout his career including POPEYE, THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, and RACHEL GETTING MARRIED. He's also done a ton of work in television such as playing Mr. Noodle on Sesame Street's Elmo's World.

INTERSTELLAR looks like it's going to be a giant film. With Nolan directing, this cast and the plot involving time travel and worm holes, this could be an incredible science-fiction movie. But I do want to learn more about this epic sounding project before I start declaring it the next big thing. There's a lot of hype already for the movie so hopefully Nolan is up to the challenge of delivering a stellar film.

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.

INTERSTELLAR stars Anne Hathaway, Matthew McConaughey, Michael Caine, Jessica Chastain and will be in theaters on November 7th, 2014.

Last thing I saw Bill Irwin in was an episode of CSI where he used his elastic face to great effect as a total psychopath. Somehow I doubt that's what we'll see here. Nolan has been pretty good about casting character actors who, for whatever reason, haven't been getting the same exposure as they once did. Think Rutger Hauer, Anthony Michael Hall, Tom Berenger, and Matthew Modine. So I imagine this is along that same line.

The script is based on scientific theories developed by Sheldon Cooper and Rajesh Koothrappali, a theoretical physicist and an astrophysicist at Caltech.

Would love for Nolan to find a spot in this film for Cillian Murphy. Have always enjoyed him alot in Nolan's films, especially Inception.
