Stuhlbarg has been seen most recently in the Danny Boyle-directed, Aaron Sorkin-penned Steve Jobs as Apple engineer Andy Hertzfeld and will appear in the upcoming biopic Trumbo opposite Bryan Cranston. He has also had roles in the Coen brothers’ A Serious Man, HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, and the Bobby Fisher biopic Pawn Sacrifice.

The news was broke by THR which noted his “scene stealing” work in Men in Black 3.

Scott Derrickson is directing the film, which tells the story of neurosurgeon-turned-sorcerer Stephen Strange (Cumberbatch). Tilda Swinton also stars as Strange’s mentor, the Ancient One, and Chiwetel Ejiofor will play the villainous Baron Mordo.

“I am doing Doctor Strange, and I’m incredibly excited about it,” Ejiofor said to EW during an August interview to promote Z for Zachariah, an indie apocalypse drama. The Oscar nominee then added with a laugh: “That’s all I say.”

“He’s a good friend of mine,” Ejiofor said of Cumberbatch, who costarred with Ejiofor in 12 Years a Slave. “So, it’s gonna be fun. And Tilda Swinton — I haven’t worked with her, but I’m excited to work with her. She’s brilliant.”

Stuhlbarg’s role in the film is being kept under wraps.

Doctor Strange is slated to hit theaters Nov. 4, 2016.
