With Oppenheimer, his first leading role in a Nolan film, Cillian Murphy‘s decades-long partnership with the director reached a new high. The film received the highest reviews of the actor’s career and generated Oscar chatter for best actor.

Nolan is known for making great films, and the Irish actor has played a supporting role in three Batman films. During a press tour, Murphy was asked if there were any Nolan movies not featuring him that he wished he could’ve starred in. The actor chose the filmmaker’s 2014 sci-fi epic Interstellar. He said,

“I adore Interstellar just because I find it so emotional. I remember seeing it in the cinema when I had little kids. It just had a big impact on me. It broke my heart. I love watching his films when I’m not in them because you don’t have to freak out about the size of your ears, or whatever.”

The Irish actor emphasized that Nolan chose the right people for Interstellar and has no hard feelings. The 2014 film starred Matthew McConaughey in the lead as a former NASA pilot who is hired to search for a new planet outside of the solar system that can sustain human life.
