Christopher Nolan's ‘Interstellar’ Adds Bill Irwin

Bill Irwin joins Christopher Nolan's Interstellar Veteran character actor Bill Irwin has signed on to star in director Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. As is normally the case with any Christopher Nolan movie, details about the actor's character have not been revealed.

The story centers on a group of explorers who travel through a wormhole and discover another dimension of space and time. The plot is reportedly based on the scientific theories of physicist Kip Thorne, who believes that wormholes do exist, and can be used for time travel. Kip Thorne is serving as a scientific consultant on the project. Bill Irwin will reunite with his Rachel Getting Married co-star Anne Hathaway in a cast that also includes Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain and Michael Caine.

Christopher Nolan is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with his brother Jonathan Nolan. The director is also producing alongside Emma Thomas and Lynda Obst, with Jordan Goldberg executive producing. It isn't known when production will begin.

Bill Irwin most recently starred in the short-lived TNT drama series Monday Mornings, and in Vera Farmiga's directorial debut, Higher Ground.

Interstellar was released November 7th, 2014.
