Christopher Nolan’s (Dark Knight, Tenet, Dunkirk) Oppenheimer continues to round out its cast with A-list talent. Florence Pugh (Hawkeye), Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody) and Benny Safdie (Good Time) are the latest actors to bring their nuclear star power to Oppenheimer. The trio joins Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting), Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow) and Cillian Murphy (28 Days Later) on the call sheet in what has become one of the most stacked feature projects in recent memory.

Murphy is leading the cast, portraying the theoretical physicist who helped develop the atomic bomb during World War II.

Pugh will play Jean Tatlock, a member of the Communist Party of the United States who has an off-and-on affair with Oppenheimer and was the cause of major security concerns for government officials.

Safdie will play Edward Teller, the Hungarian physicist who is known as the father of the hydrogen bomb and a member of the Manhattan Project, the U.S. research initiative that developed the first atomic bomb.

Malek is playing a scientist.

Already on the roll call are Blunt as Oppenheimer’s wife, Katherine “Kitty” Oppenheimer and Damon as Lt. Gen. Leslie Groves, the director of the Manhattan Project. Downey is playing Lewis Strauss, the infamous chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission who initiated hearings that questioned Oppenheimer’s loyalty to the United States and famously had the scientist’s security clearance revoked.
