According to THR, Wes Bentley has snagged the final major role in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi flick, Interstellar. He’ll round out a fantastic cast that includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn and Topher Grace, who just joined yesterday.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: This may just be the most impressive cast that we’ll see in any film in 2014. Being a Nolan project though, did you expect anything less than a stellar line-up of talent?
Of course, much like the rest of the cast, Bentley’s role is being kept tightly under wraps. That goes for the film as well. All we really know is that it will “depict a heroic interstellar voyage to the farthest borders of our scientific understanding.” That being said, what more do we really need to know? It’s Nolan, it’s sci-fi, it’s got a star studded cast….that’s more than enough to assure us that this will be something special.
Admittedly, Bentley isn’t the biggest name around but he’s probably best known for his roles in American Beauty and The Hunger Games. No doubt, Interstellar will be a huge boost for his career and given that he’s a talented performer, I can safely say that I’m happy for him. I’ve been rooting for Bentley for a while and maybe now he’ll finally get the recognition that he deserves.
