Gary Oldman, who worked with Christopher Nolan on his Batman trilogy, has confirmed that he would appear in one scene in the director’s next film.
Oppenheimer will revolve around the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer, a theoretical physicist who made significant contributions to the invention of the atomic bomb.
Cillian Murphy will take on the role of Oppenheimer, among a star-studded ensemble that includes Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr, Florence Pugh, and Rami Malek.
That ensemble seems to shine a little brighter after Oldman’s announcement in an interview that he would have landed a modest role in the film.
The actor shared with listeners on UK radio station TalkSport that he was scheduled to work on the film’s set for one day – “one scene, a page and a half” – in May.
Oldman is now promoting Slow Horses, the espionage series that debuted on Apple TV+ earlier this month.
Here is an excerpt from Oldman‘s TalkSport interview:
