Josh Peck from Drake & Josh fame will join Christopher Nolan’s insane Oppenheimer ensemble.
The cast for Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer is already a who’s who of Hollywood. It appears that will continue, with Variety reporting that Oppenheimer has added Drake & Josh star Josh Peck to its cast.
Josh Peck’s addition to the cast might be the most surprising to date. Since Drake & Josh, Peck has been busy, appearing in projects such as How I Met Your Father and Turner & Hootch. There are no details on who Peck will play in the upcoming Universal film.
The biopic will also feature Cillian Murphy as J. Robert Oppenheimer, Robert Downey Jr. as Lewis Strauss, Matt Damon as Leslie Groves Jr., Emily Blunt as Kitty Oppenheimer, Florence Pugh, Rami Malek, Benny Safdie, Josh Hartnett, Dane DeHaan, Jack Quaid, Matthew Modine, Alden Ehrenreich, David Krumholtz, Kenneth Branagh, Jason Clarke, and David Distmalchian. Josh Peck joins the picture with filming already underway. Universal has also released the first look at Murphy as the theoretical physicist.
Here’s the synopsis for the director’s last film, Tenet:
Armed with only one word—Tenet—and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time. Not time travel. Inversion.
Written and directed by Christopher Nolan, Tenet stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy, Michael Caine, Kenneth Branagh, and Himesh Patel. Christopher Nolan also serves as a producer alongside his wife Emma Thomas, with Thomas Hayslip as an executive producer.
Tenet is available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital Download, while Oppenheimer will hit theaters on July 21, 2023. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the upcoming film, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
