I feel like Kenneth is starting to replace Michael Caine, very happy to see him back for the third time in a row with Nolan.

Yup... also, I'm just reeeeally curious who Branagh is playing.

EDIT: Maybe Isidor Rabi, who had a number of important personal encounters with Oppenheimer? Although he is of Polish-Jewish descent, so good old Kenneth might not be the Nolan's first choice... but who knows!

I don't know if this has been brought up elsewhere about "Oppenheimer", but now I think that Branagh might be playing Richard Feynman:

The only thing is that Feynman was very young when meeting Oppenheimer - he was in his 20s.

Some people think it's Jack Quaid who's playing him.
