Topher Grace joins Christopher Nolan's Interstellar

07.23.2013

Where the hell did Topher Grace go? The actor looked to have limitless options on his horizon until SPIDER-MAN 3 crapped the bed. Since then he has appeared in the comedy VALENTINE'S DAY, the retro TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT, and PREDATORS, but not much else. He did cobble together his own supercut of the STAR WARS prequels, but that is about it. Now, Grace looks to be taking a role in his biggest film in a long time.

Grace just joined Christopher Nolan's INTERSTELLAT along with veterans John Lithgow and Ellen Burstyn. They will feature alongside the already brimming roster that also has Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, Bill Irwin, Timothée Chalamet and Mackenzie Foy.

Nolan's science fiction epic sounds more along the lines of CONTACT rather than WAR OF THE WORLDS as it tells the story of “a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest borders of our scientific understanding.”

I like Grace as an actor and while this role may just be a smaller supporting appearance, it is nice to see him working with a director like Nolan. Nolan latched onto Joseph Gordon-Levitt, an actor I have often equated Grace to. Hopefully this marks an uptick in Grace's career. On it's own, INTERSTELLAR is shaping up to be one hell of an all-star movie.

INTERSTELLAR opens November 7, 2014.

Oh lord...

I've never liked this guy. Not sure exactly why? Since That 70's Show on through Spider-Man 3 (Please tell me why they cast HIM as Eddie Brock?!) and Predators. Just gives off some sort of douchey vibe. Idk, but I'll go along with Nolan's choice.

The first time I saw Traffic, I didn't know who that actor was. When I realized it was the guy from That '70s Show I was floored.

I don't know if Topher Grace is on the same level as Joseph Gordon-Levitt, but he's certainly an actor worthy of the Nolan-verse.

Topher is one of those actors I don't want to see end up in the shit hole. Like how people would not wan't Bryan Cranston to end up breaking into bad movies. It sucks that Topher has gotten poor roles. I feel he could show a lot more than what people expect. My opinion is a little biased though, cause I am a huge fan of That 70's Show. I liked him in Predators too.

I like this casting. Topher is a good actor in the right role and I see no problem with him fitting into Nolan's universe of films.

What is it with actors who were brilliant in a sitcom but just can't hack it in movies? Say what you will about Grace's movie carreer but he was pretty damn good and funny in That 70's Show.

"DUMBASS!"

...sorry, I couldn't resist.

Sony's misuse of him w/ such an iconic character in "Spider-Man 3" non-withstanding...I think Grace is still a pretty cool actor & I'm def interested as to what Nolan has in store for everybody involved w/ "Interstellar".

I trust Nolan, but...

...I've really just never been a fan of this guy's, and while I kept an open mind with both Spider-Man 3 and Predator, I thought he was easily the weakest part of both films (especially Spider-Man 3, where he basically contributed to the awfulness of Venom). Maybe this will be a better role for him.
