Oscar Isaac is out of the trenches and hitting gold

USAToday.com The ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ folksinger says he loved playing a working blue-collar guy.

After nine years in the trenches, Oscar Isaac, 34, hit gold as a folk singer in Inside Llewyn Davis. “When I got the audition material, at the bottom of the page it said, ‘Llewyn is NOT Bob Dylan,'” Isaac recalls. “Llewyn’s not the poet genius. He’s the workman, blue-collar guy. I loved that.”

A Juilliard graduate, Isaac describes Llewyn as “not wholly likeable, but also absurd and tragic.” He is thwarted at every turn. Something Isaac can likely relate to, after missing out on an Oscar nomination after months of positive buzz about his performance. “I’ve had moments … but I’ve never felt passed over, even when I’ve literally been passed over.”
