Oscar-winners Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway are on the sofa tonight to discuss their latest film: Interstellar, a space adventure of galactic proportions (it's nearly three hours long). Unlike in, respectively, Dallas Buyers Club and Les Misérables, their roles in this didn't require them to crash-diet - just to save an environmentally devastated Earth by travelling through a wormhole in space to find humankind a new home.
It's not long ago that Matthew McConaughey had become a byword for lightweight romantic comedies and going shirtless at every opportunity. But the role that recently won him a Golden Globe was lightweight in the literal sense: McConaughey shed three stone to play a rodeo cowboy dying of AIDS in The Dallas Buyer's Club.
Hollywood comes to Graham Norton's sofa as Matthew McConaughey - Golden Globe-winning star of the Oscar-nominated Dallas Buyers Club - joins Julianne Moore, whose new action thriller, Non-Stop, touches down in Britain at the end of next month. There's also a US vibe to the music with Sheryl Crow, while keeping the Union flag flying is Alan Davies, whose comedy career takes a quite interesting sporty turn this time next week when he hosts a Winter Olympics chatty guest show.Carol Carter and Larushka Ivan-Zadeh, Metro, 31st January 2014
