Another big name, and Damon always says great things about Nolan when asked in interviews and such.

Thought about this too. Damon was very outward about wanting to work with him, and this time he'll actually get some billing/credits on promotional material lmao

Just remembered this great, quick moment with Damon gushing about his experience on Interstellar. It's not really a hidden gem as I'm sure plenty have seen this; I just can't wait for his performance in Oppenheimer.
