‘The Butler’ & ‘Red Tails’ Star David Oyelowo Joins Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’

'The Butler' & 'Red Tails' Star David Oyelowo Joins Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar'

It looks like the birthday boy isn’t taking a moment to rest. Celebrating his 43rd birthday, Christopher Nolan will have to blow out the candles a little later, because right now he’s continuing to add names to his already massive cast for “Interstellar.”

David Oyelowo, the constantly on the brink and Playlist fave actor you’ve seen in “Jack Reacher,” “The Help,” “The Paperboy” and “Red Tails” among others (and who features in the upcoming “Lee Daniels’ The Butler“) is now aboard the movie. And he’s being joined by “Cloud Atlas” actor David Gyasi. Of course, their roles are being kept under wraps, so let’s just recap the poster credit crowding cast right here: Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, Wes Bentley, Mackenzie Foy, Timothee Chalamet and Topher Grace

Filming kicks off next month and it will hit theatres on November 7, 2014. [The Wrap]
