I thought the same thing, except for the sequencing of events:
...they showed JC after McC departed from Earth, whereas Affleck was shown earlier in the sequencing of events, before he launches off. With that said, we know Nolan dislikes linearity :problem:
I don't think that it has to do with linearity. It's presented clearly in the trailer that Affleck and Chastain have to do with burning cornfields and having read the script it's clear to me that they are Cooper's children.

I agree - I was probably over-analyzing, but just thought it might be worth pointing out. Logic says you're right. 8-)

If you look at Timothee Chalamet's face and Topher Grace's face they are a lot more similar than Chalamet's and Affleck's. I still think they are the younger and older versions respectively. I could be wrong though.

I think Casey Affleck may well play the husband of Chastain.

You might be right even though I doubt it. Everybody is just speculating. ;)

I posted this a while back too. I think that's what's gonna happen.

Affleck and Chalamet have the same hair color however, and they don't look that different. I'm still going off of how Topher Grace was dressed in the set pics. He looks way too nice to be a farmer. I know it's not impossible that he grew up and got a good job, but in the kind of world Interstellar takes place in, it seems incredibly unlikely.

Agreed. Besides, Tom is supposed to be older than Murph and Grace doesn't seem so older than Chastain while Affleck does.

Topher Grace will play Brand's younger brother according to Nolan's draft

Really? Topher Grace is 4 years older than Anne Hathaway and looks it. I didn't even remember Brand had a brother.

I'm sure Casey Affleck is playing the grown up Timothee. They both have the same very intense eyes and prominent eyebrows. And frankly, Affleck is a much, much better actor than Grace and he'll be better in a more demanding role. Grace is probably playing either Jessica's boyfriend/husband or somebody from NASA.

Who do you think will be the team that goes into space? How many?
