Yesterday, the cast of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar expanded with the inclusions of Timothee Chalamet (Homeland), Mackenzie Foy (Twilight) and Ellen Burstyn (The Exorcist). Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Bill Irwin, Casey Affleck and Michael Caine headline the highly anticipated sci-fi epic. Now, according to The Wrap, John Lithgow has landed a role in the film. Previously seen in Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, the Emmy and Golden Globe winning actor also appeared in comedies This Is 40 and The Campaign. As expected, his role in Interstellar is being kept under wraps.

With a script written by Jonathan Nolan (and later rewritten by Chris to merge his own original idea), Interstellar follows a heroic group of explorers who travel through a wormhole and into another dimension. The ideas are based on the work of physicist Kip Thorne, who's also an executive producer. With filming expected to begin later this year, the Warner Bros./Paramount Pictures co-production is slated for a November 7th, 2014 theatrical release and will be shot in IMAX.

This cast is pretty awesome.

McConaughey is having the best comeback since Ben Affleck.

Adding some much needed sex appeal to the cast.

He will play the villain. Or the mad scientist. I bet Michael Caine whoops his ass in the movie.

say what you will about nolan but after movies like the prestige and inception personally i can't wait to see what he's gonna do

tdkr collapsed under its weight but the scope of it can be respected

I love John Lithgow he is such a good actor and is easily likeable. Heck, I actually felt bad for his character on Dexter even though he was a serial killer.
