It looks like the birthday boy isn't taking a moment to rest. Celebrating his 43rd birthday, Christopher Nolan will have to blow out the candles a little later, because right now he's continuing to add names to his already massive cast for "Interstellar." David Oyelowo, the constantly on the brink and Playlist fave actor you've seen in "Jack Reacher," "The Help," "The Paperboy" and "Red Tails" among others (and who features in the upcoming "Lee Daniels' The Butler") is now aboard the movie. And he's being joined by "Cloud Atlas" actor David Gyasi. Of course, their roles are being kept under wraps, so let's just recap the poster credit crowding cast right here: Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, Wes Bentley, Mackenzie Foy, Timothee Chalamet and Topher Grace. Filming kicks off next month and it will hit theatres on November »

While Christopher Nolan has never had a problem rounding up top rate actors to appear in his films, he's also always been up for throwing a curveball every now and again. Think Eric Roberts in "The Dark Knight" or Tom Berenger In "Inception." And it looks the filmmaker has another trick up his sleeve and may be a closet fan of "That '70s Show." Deadline reports that Topher Grace has boarded the cast "Interstellar." Yes, Eric Forman will now rub shoulders with Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, "Twilight" actress Mackenzie Foy, and "Homeland" actor Timothee Chalamet. Of course, don't ask what his role will be because as per usual Nolan is keeping all details locked in a vault deep in the Earth's core. But what we do know is that the movie will involve time travel and wormholes. »

Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi drama “Interstellar” keeps sounding better and better, especially with the latest addition to the cast in Casey Affleck, brother of Ben, and for my money, easily the better actor in the family. (Sorry, Ben.) With Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, and Jessica Chastain already slotted for the film’s three main roles (with Michael Caine and Bill Irwin also tossed in there somewhere), Nolan has now added Affleck to the super duper secret film. Of course it goes without saying we have no idea what role Affleck will be playing in the movie, just as we have no idea about the roles of any of the other castmembers, including the three leads. All we really know for sure is that Nolan and his bro Jonathan wrote the film, which at one time was a Steven Spielberg project. Spielberg has since left, but we do know that the »
The actor himself revealed the news to Elle Magazine;
Affleck, who will be working with Nolan for the first time, joins the ever-growing cast of amazing talent that already includes fellow newcomers Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain and Bill Irwin, and former Nolan cast-members Anne Hathaway and Michael Caine.
Scribed by Chris’ screenwriting brother Jonathan Nolan (Memento, The Prestige, The Dark Knight) years ago but only recent taking the director’s interest, the movie tells the story of a group of explorers who go through a wormhole and will deal with time travel and alternate dimensions.

During an interview with Elle Magazine to promote his upcoming drama Ain't Them Bodies Saints, Casey Affleck revealed he has joined the cast of director Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. Here's what he had to say, when asked about his upcoming projects.
"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."
Christopher Nolan is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with his brother, Jonathan Nolan. The story centers around a journey into outer space that challenges our knowledge of science and technology. The plot is reportedly based on the theories of physicist Kip Thorne, who believes that wormholes actually do exist, and can be used for time travel. »
Update: Casey Affleck is the latest to sign on to Christopher's Nolan's time-traveling "Interstellar," which currently has Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, Jessica Chastain and Bill Irwin lined up. Affleck has been on a roll lately, with David Lowery's Western "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" (August 16) and Scott Cooper's "Out of the Furnace," which Relativity is giving a confident Oscar push this coming awards season. "Interstellar" is set for a November 7, 2014 release. McConaughey also had a great year in 2012, with an acclaimed role in "Magic Mike," a box-office smash, and in smaller, edgier fare like "Bernie," "Killer Joe" and "The Paperboy." "Interstellar" will continue his move away from the usual typecasting in favor of well-received films with auteur backing. Hathaway and Nolan are reuniting for "Interstellar," following the actress' 2012 turn as Selina Kyle/Catwoman in "The Dark Knight Rises." She won the Oscar earlier this year for "Les Miserables"; Chastain. »

Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros are collaborating for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar after the project was originally failed to come to fruition in 2006 with Steven Spielberg at the helm.

We already know the film’s main cast includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine and Bill Irwin. Now Casey Affleck has confirmed he’s joining the project, although didn’t give any hints to his character in the sci-fi thriller.
