Christopher Nolan Wants Matthew McConaughey To Play The Main Character Cooper In INTERSTELLAR?
Deadline reports that Christopher Nolan is very interested in casting Matthew McConaughey as the lead in his wormhole sci-fi adventure film Interstellar. Matthew would play the main role of Cooper. McConaughey started his carare making well received films like Dazed And Confused and A Time To Kill but started chasing paychecks with horrible romantic comedies. His recent string of films such as Mud, Lincoln Lawyer, Killer Joe and Magic Mike have given him a new life in Hollywood. Matthew ended up earning an Independent Spirit Award for the latter. Apparently, there is already Oscar talk for his AIDS drama Dallas Buyer's Guide. The actor went all Christian Bale and lost a crazy amount of weight to play his character. Matthew will also be seen in Martin Scorsese's Wolf of Wall Street alongside Leonardo DiCaprio later this year, which could have also helped get Nolan's attention. The only other actor linked for Interstellar includes Michael Caine. He already teased a role in the film before it was even announced. We won't have to wait long for the film's release as it's coming on November 7th 2014.
