The Oscar Bait
Move over, Al Pacino. Oscar Isaac has wowed audiences and critics alike with his roles in A Most Violent Year, Ex Machina, and Inside Llewyn Davis, which earned him a Golden Globe nomination. This December, the Guatemalan and Cuban Juilliard School grad will travel to a galaxy far, far away as Poe Dameron, a Resistance X-wing pilot, in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, one of the most-anticipated flicks of all time. That’s not the only blockbuster in the works for Isaac; he’ll also star in X-Men: Apocalypse, sure to be next summer’s popcorn hit. An Oscar for Oscar may come sooner rather than later.
