Topher Grace Goes 'Interstellar' For Christopher Nolan (Yes, Really)

While Christopher Nolan has never had a problem rounding up top rate actors to appear in his films, he's also always been up for throwing a curveball every now and again. Think Eric Roberts in "The Dark Knight" or Tom Berenger In "Inception." And it looks the filmmaker has another trick up his sleeve and may be a closet fan of "That '70s Show."

Topher Grace

While Christopher Nolan has never had a problem rounding up top rate actors to appear in his films, he's also always been up for throwing a curveball every now and again. Think Eric Roberts in "The Dark Knight" or Tom Berenger In "Inception." And it looks the filmmaker has another trick up his sleeve and may be a closet fan of "That '70s Show."

Deadline reports that Topher Grace has boarded the cast "Interstellar." Yes, Eric Forman will now rub shoulders with Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, "Twilight" actress Mackenzie Foy, and "Homeland" actor Timothee Chalamet. Of course, don't ask what his role will be because as per usual Nolan is keeping all details locked in a vault deep in the Earth's core. But what we do know is that the movie will involve time travel and wormholes.

Filming gets underway this fall and you'll get what where Topher Grace fits in all of this on November 7, 2014. Guess we shouldn't have written that guy off....
