I'm not talking about producing credit, I'm talking about a skilled storyteller crafting a story, which is what Nolan did, and may producers do not. I'm not talking about bankability, I'm talking about raw acting talent. There's more oscars and noms and other awards on the MOS side, not bankability. Russel Crowe is the only guy in the MOS squad that's at all bankable, but it's just a powerhouse of acting talent anyway.
Now... trying to act like Nolan is a hands off producer here, or that the movie will be affected more by listing the names that don't fit on the marquee than by the great performances that the entirety of the supporting cast routinely turns in... that's
