Oscar Isaac could very well win an Academy Award for Best Actor in 2014...but he's not quite a household name. So just who is this actor?

The 33-year-old Latino stars as the title character in the Coen Brother’s newest flick, Inside Llewyn Davis, a period piece which pays tribute to the folk revival scene of New York City in the early 60s. Davis, a folk singer, used to be part of a successful duo–until his partner committed suicide. Now, the musician is adrift as a solo act, broke and homeless, and trying to decide if he should continue to pursue his dream...or just let it go.

The movie, which co-stars Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Justin Timberlake, and Garrett Hedlund, hits theaters Dec. 6.
