Oscar Isaac talks Patricia Highsmith thriller and 'Star Wars: Episode VII'

Oscar Isaac is having a pretty good year. The Juilliard-trained actor has been on a bit of a roll since being cast as the lead in Inside Llewyn Davis; the Coen brothers’ ’60s folk noir may not have gotten the awards traction that could have made Isaac’s breakout a truly golden ride, but it’s not like the lack of an Oscar nomination dimmed his prospects either. Not only did he score a choice role opposite Jessica Chastain in director J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year, which recently received an awards-season friendly 2014 release datehe was also cast in Star Wars: Episode VII. But you already knew that one.

In his latest, an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s 1964 novel The Two Faces of January, Isaac plays Rydal, a clean-shaven, fedora-sporting American abroad who’s been leading the life of a quiet, small time scam artist in Greece till he takes up with a beguiling American couple played by Kirsten Dunst (Colette) and Viggo Mortensen (Chester). When a symbol of Chester’s less-than-honest past pays him an unexpected visit, a violent incident tethers the three travelers for the remainder of the slow-burning thriller, directed and adapted by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Hossein Amini (The Wings of the Dove).

“He didn’t look, necessarily, like the part was described in the book, but he can do anything. He has this thing that my favorite kind of actors have in that they’re kind of edgy and dangerous, but he has this innocence as well,” said Amini, who met Isaac on Drive, which he wrote the screenplay for. “You can feel it when he’s flirting with Kirsten, and he looks over and sees Viggo and feels guilty and tries to include him in the conversation. He can switch moods so quickly. I don’t know many actors who can go toe-to-toe with Viggo.”

EW spoke to Isaac about The Two Faces of January (available now on VOD and in select theaters on Sept. 26), the game-changing moments of his career and even a bit about Star Wars, which he’s currently filming in London.

'Star Wars: Episode VII' resumes shooting after Harrison Ford injury

Han Solo is back in the cockpit.

Star Wars: Episode VII has officially resumed shooting at Pinewood Studios outside of London after taking a brief hiatus due to the on-set accident that broke Harrison Ford’s leg on June 12. Since his character is a major part of the Episode VII story, this caused massive upheaval for the film schedule, which had to be reshuffled in the midst of production while the 72-year-old star recuperated.

As part of that reorganization, photography was placed on hold for two weeks this month, but the entire cast and crew returned to the U.K. this week and the film is officially going, well … full Force, according to sources close to the project.

Uh-oh, Chewie. The Millennium Falcon has sprung a few leaks.

A galaxy faraway, so close: Adam Driver on the intimacy of 'Star Wars: Episode VII'

We promised him up front: No Jedi mind tricks. But when EW interviewed Adam Driver for our Fall Movie Preview, we couldn’t help but slip him a few questions about his work on Star Wars: Episode VII.

Although he couldn’t confirm this, multiple sources close to the Star Wars follow-up have already told EW that Driver will be playing a villain, a threat to both veteran players (Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher) and the cast’s newcomers.

“Doing Star Wars now—that’s surreal,” Driver volunteers. “I feel like that even with this cast. You start by try to stamp [that feeling] down as much as possible, just focus on what it is that you are there to do… Easier said than done.”

The guy from Girls is in four movies playing next month at the Toronto International Film Festival—including a breakthrough role opposite Tina Fey, Jason Bateman, and Jane Fonda in director Shawn Levy’s This Is Where I Leave You. Driver, 30, co-stars as Phillip, the charismatic, playboy baby-brother of a family in mourning. He wants them to see him as a grown-up, even though he isn’t above using some childish tactics to get attention (and get his way).

After talking about that role and the half-dozen others he has in the pipeline, EW ventured off into galactic territory. READ FULL STORY

STAR-WARS-UNICEF

Ponda Boba, IG-88, Willrow Hood, Lobot … Now you can add D.C. Barns to the list of Star Wars background figures.

The Denver resident is the winner of the “Force For Change” contest, which raffled a walk-on role in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII to a fan who donated to the cause. Director J.J. Abrams tweeted the message above, thanking those who contributed, and apparently revealing yet another glimpse into what awaits moviegoers on Dec. 18, 2015. (BadassDigest reported some plot details last month that suggested a severed hand falling from space.)

Below is the video a video of Barns, a lifelong fan of the franchise, getting the news that he’s now a part of it. It literally knocks him back in his chair (and after Harrison Ford’s broken leg, this production doesn’t need any more cast injuries.) READ FULL STORY
