– Show creator Sam Shaw reveals the casting choice in a recent interview

Actors Cillian Murphy and Ebon Moss-Bachrach reportedly caught the eye of casting directors for the role of Frank Winter in the 2014 television series Manhattan, which is set during the development of the atomic bomb. The part, based on J. Robert Oppenheimer who was one of the key figures in the Manhattan Project, eventually went to Daniel Stern.

In a recent interview, the show’s creator Sam Shaw shared this interesting casting choice, which caused speculation about how the series might have turned out with either Murphy or Ebon Moss-Bachrach playing the lead role. The gritty drama followed the lives of scientists and their families who were involved in the top-secret Manhattan Project, which brought the atomic bomb into existence. It’s noteworthy to think about how the dynamics of the show could have been different if they had cast one of the other two actors.
