Interstellar: Matthew McConaughey Cast In Nolan's Next Film

Interstellar, the next film from director, Christopher Nolan will apparently feature a bit of redneck stoner surfer vibe. It is being reported that Matthew McConaughey has been cast in The Dark Knight Trilogy visionary's experimental space epic. -- Alright-alright!

At this point, next to nothing has been revealed about the plot of the film itself, much less what McConaughey's role will entail. (Although a preliminary report by Deadline last week speculated that he would play a character named "Cooper.") What is known, is that the space-scifi departure from the superhero genre for Christopher Nolan will be based off the research of renown physics professor, Kip Thorne which theorizes on the utilization of wormholes for the use of time-travel. With a script on hand by the director's brother, Jonathan Nolan (which Christopher may have tweaked), expectations towards this ambitious, likely experimental project from the Nolans are already measured in light years, considering it was the center of a rare co-production/co-distribution deal between major studios, Warner Bros. and Paramount.

For McConaughey, the role could be an important step in the evolution of his acting career. While no stranger to the occasional dramatic role (like the memorable A Time to Kill), the actor is more commonly associated with irreverent parts and is probably still best remembered (besides for his prejudice against shirts,) from his role in 1993's Dazed and Confused as David Wooderson, an aimless, capricious partier who is a bit too old to be socially-familiar with high school students. However, after recent roles in Magic Mike, The Lincoln Lawyer, and Killer Joe, it seems that not only has his status as a bankable star been renewed, but more faith is being taken by studios towards his ability to tackle projects outside the box, genre-wise. This role in Interstellar definitely reflects that.

Interstellar proves that McConaughey gets older, but those red giants in space stay the same age when it hits theaters on November 7, 2014.
