is finally eyeballing a lead for his upcoming time-travel flick Interstellar, written by his brother and long-time creative partner .
Deadline reports that has been offered the part of Cooper, who will be dealing with a voyage of scientific discovery into space-time through wormholes.
McConaughey is yet to confirm his part in the movie, but saying no to a Nolan movie would be almost as stupid as Will Smith turning down Django Unchained.
For McConaughey's sake here's hoping that doesn't happen. The guy is on a roll at the moment and he was excellent in Contact in the late 90s, so sci-fi isn't outside of the actor's skill set.
What do you think of Nolan's choice of McConaughey as his leading man? Let us know in the comments.
