I know we are a bit late with covering this story, but it has just been one of THOSE weeks here at Shoving Buddies HQ. Anyway, as the self confessed Nolan nuts we are we had to post our reaction to the latest Interstellar casting news, even if we are the last to cover it.
After announcing Matthew McConaughey in the lead role of “Cooper” it now appears that Anne Hathaway is considering signing on the for the female lead, as yet to be named. If she does sign this will mark the first role to be announced for Hathaway since her Oscar win for Les Miserables, and her second stint with Nolan after her scene stealing role as Catwoman in 2012’s Dark Knight Rises.
I’ll be honest and say I have never been a big Hathaway fan before Dark Knight. Her turn as Catwoman though won me over and this is a combo that, 5 years ago, I would have assumed Nolan had a stroke during casting. Now though I am excited to see where he is going to take the rest of his casting decisions for Interstellar.
We’ll aim to keep on top of the news as it happens and post reaction to it!
