Keanu Reeves. I think he would fit in well as a tortured soul type character.

After finally getting around to Prisoners and Nightcrawler, I am all for Jake Gyllenhaal in a Nolan movie. Kinda think he'd be good for Howard Hughes if Nolan ever made that movie.

A female-led Nolan film would be an interesting change of pace.

I'd love to see Emily Blunt cast in one of his films at some point.... she's done a few horror films, and I would really like to see Nolan tackle a psychological horror project or something closer to his Hitchcockian roots.

It's not so shocking if you consider he only made 10 films. You can't make films with every actor, especially newcomers like Daniel Kaluuya. You might have a point with names like De Niro, DDL, Crowe or Pitt who are Hollywood royalty, or even modern stars like Gosling or Fassbender. But a lot of these names are just good actors that he didn't have a chance to work with. There's nothing surprising about it.

If you had told me in 2013 that he would be working with Matthew McConaughey before anyone on that list, I would've thought the world had gone mad.

But then again, that's Nolan's genius with casting. :geek:
