All The Actors In Christopher Nolan's 'Oppenheimer,' Ranked

List Rules
Vote up the actors you're most excited to see in a classy WWII-era film from the director of Dunkirk and The Dark Knight.

If you've been idly wondering whether or not Christopher Nolan's next movie has a ridiculously strong cast of world class actors, guess what? It does. It really, really does. Having chronicled the exploits of Batmen, spacemen, and time-traveling spy guys, Nolan is now tackling a nuclear boy: J. Robert Oppenheimer, the physicist widely considered the "father of the atomic bomb."

Nolan's Batman franchise and Inception collaborator Cillian Muprhy is playing J. Bobby Oppenheimer himself, and he's joined by a bunch of fellow Nolan alumni, a few of the biggest movie stars on the planet, another Skarsgard, and the guy who never got enough credit for being a solid young Han Solo. But we've buried the lede: Emily Blunt is in this movie. What else do you need to know?

All these thespians are confirmed to be part of Oppenheimer. Vote up the ones whose involvement guarantee your butt will be in a seat at your local multiplex on July 21, 2023.
