The already-stacked cast of the film just got more talented, with The Playlist breaking the news via Elle that critically-lauded actor is on board. The actor confirmed as much to Elle in an interview, saying

Affleck joins a talent-laden cast that already includes Nolan alums and , along with leading man , and .

Interstellar starts filming this fall, with the movie set to hit theaters on November 7th of next year. [[follow]] along, and we'll make sure to keep you updated.
