Topher Grace Flies To Interstellar
Chris Nolan finds a supporting player

Topher Grace Spider-Man 3

While he already has the majority of his leading cast in place, Christopher Nolan is apparently not finished filling all the roles in his latest, sci-fi adventure Interstellar. How do we know this? Because Topher Grace is now making a deal to join the supporting team.

Interstellar, which already stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Mackenzie Foy, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, Bill Irwin and Timothee Chalamet, finds a group of explorers travelling into space and heading through a wormhole into another dimension. At least, that’s what the film appears to be about, although Nolan has typically dropped a cone of silence around the project.

Grace is being considered for a supporting role, one that will require the actor to be fitted with the Dark Knight director’s standard kill chip, which will deliver a lethal dose of poison to his noggin should he spill any details. All right, so he’ll just have to keep schtum. But if Nolan could manufacture such a chip and find a way to inject it into his actors, you know he’d try.

Interstellar is set to kick off shooting later this year. Grace will next show up in The Calling and A Many Splintered Thing.

I wouldn't worry about it, Cowbell
The reason why Topher Grace was disappointing in SPIDER-MAN 3 (2007) - it still hurts of how awful that film was six and half years since it came out - is because he was miscast and the role was very poorly-written. And it's unlikely that Grace will be one of the main characters. Remember, this is an ensemble cast that's appearing in INTERSTELLAR. I'm pretty sure he'll be OK in the film than he was as Venom.
