“Girls'” Adam Driver May Be the Next “Star Wars” Villain

posted by Nell Minow

Adam-DriverAdam Driver of “Girls” and “Inside Llewyn Davis” is likely to be the bad guy in the rebooted “Star Wars,” now in pre-production.

Rolling Stone’s engaging profile describes Driver as

an oddity, with an elongated face that has the striking ability to appear both monumental and elfin, and a hulkish body that buzzes with nervous energy. He eats six eggs (minus four yolks) each day (“I have a control problem,” he says. “I hate the feeling of not being in control”). He works out obsessively (“I feel like I have to move violently once a day or I’ll lose my mind”). He once slept for several weeks in a paint storage room on the roof of Juilliard in preparation for a role in which he felt the character needed to feel isolated, and looks forward to having kids so that he has an excuse to always stay home. He doesn’t do Twitter (“I don’t understand technology, and I’m very scared of it”), he doesn’t have cable (“I’ve actually tried getting cable, like, three different times and, goddamn, it’s expensive”), and he refuses to watch Girls (“That’s a way that I try to not have control over what’s happening”).

Driver is the son and stepson of clergymen, a veteran of the Marines, and a graduate of Juilliard’s prestigious acting program. He is currently filming “Midnight Special” with Kirsten Dunst, Michael Shannon, and Joel Edgerton, and has three other films coming out as well.  He is a gifted actor who has the intensity and range to make a compelling villain.  I hope he gets the part.
