Naturally, no details have been released regarding his character, but he joins a growing cast that includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, and Bill Irwin.

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.
