Alex Wolff, who played in M. Night Shyamalan’s Old and Nicolas Cage’s indie smash Pig last year, is the newest addition to Christopher Nolan’s actor-packed biopic on one of the fathers of the A-bomb, J. Robert Oppenheimer.
Cillian Murphy, who has acted in Christopher Nolan’s Batman films as well as Dunkirk, plays a scientist whose call sheet is more atomically packed than the periodic table of elements: In addition to Robert Downey Jr., Matt Damon, Florence Pugh, Emily Blunt, David Krumholtz, Rami Malek, Emily Blunt, Benny Safdie, Alden Ehrenreich, Josh Hartnett, Dane DeHaan, Jack Quaid, Matthew Modine, and David Dastmalchian, the cast also includes Dane DeHaan, Matthew Modine, Alden Ehrenreich, Jack Quaid, David Krumholtz.
The film has been in production in New Mexico for a few weeks and is continuing to cast actors. According to sources, because of Nolan’s secrecy, performers don’t often know what role they’re signing up for until the agreement is finalized. In any case, whether for major or little roles, many in Hollywood are willing to get in.
The identity of Wolff’s character is being kept a secret.
Oppenheimer, a film about a theoretical physicist who helped build the atomic bomb during World War II but afterward had his commitment to the United States questioned by hawkish government leaders, will be released on July 21, 2023, according to the studio.
Wolff featured in the Jumanji films and was one of the actors in Ari Aster’s knuckle-whitening horror film Hereditary.
