Wes Bentley is the Latest to Join Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar'

Another name and still no new information

Wes BentleyAt this point I'm not sure posting any more casting stories related to Christopher Nolan's Interstellar is really all that necessary as a new name is added and once again I can only tell you nothing is known of the character they will play. Today the new addition is Wes Bentley (The Hunger Games).

Bentley joins a continually growing cast that includes Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow and previous new addition, Topher Grace.

As previously stated many, many times, 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. Like Inception, the story is said to be "complex and multi-layered".

The film hits theaters November 7, 2014. [THR]

    I'm waiting for "Christopher Nolan has pledged to give us one new casting announcement EVERY DAY until the Nov 7, 2014 release."
    He definitely should have pulled that out at Comic Con.

    I believe somewhere in the casting notes they said they were looking for a 30-something white male who has a strange fascinating with space bags caught in the weightlessness of space. "It's so...beautiful."

    How big is this spaceship gonna have to be if it has to carry all these people?

      I may be mistaken, but from what I understand, McConaughey, Chastain, and Hathaway are the only ones on the ship.

    Inception & TDKR had large casts so I'm not worried about it

    Several other sites reporting this said that he is the last addition to the cast. So, hopefully that means they'll finally just get to filming the damn thing.
