'Hunger Games' Star Wes Bentley Takes Final 'Interstellar' Lead Role
Briefly: Yesterday, Christopher Nolan picked up Topher Grace to join the cast of his developing sci-fi film Interstellar, preparing to shoot later this year. Now THR reports the final lead cast member has been found in The Hunger Games and American Beauty star Wes Bentley. The actor hasn't starred in the most high profile projects over the past decade, with the exception of the aforementioned young adult franchise, and this will certainly be a big boost to his ongoing career. Bentley joins Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck and Michael Caine in a film that is said to "depict a heroic interstellar voyage to the farthest borders of our scientific understanding." We can't wait to get a first look.
