TheWrap is reporting that Christopher Nolan has recruited veteran character actor Bill Irwin to the cast of Interstellar. Irwin most notably received acclaim for his role in Rachel Getting Married, in which he played the father of upcoming co-star Anne Hathaway. He is also known for his roles in the films How The Grinch Stole Christmas and Lady in the Water, as well as for his repeat appearances on TV shows like Sesame Street and CSI.
As usual, not much is known about Irwin's character, or the film in general. Interstellar will feature a story based off a script by Jonathan Nolan that has been merged with one of Christopher's own original ideas. For more on the exclusive story, head over to TheWrap.
