Oscar Isaac Breaks Down His Most Iconic Roles to GQ

Oscar sat with GQ and talked about his most iconic roles in a 15 minutes video that worth the watching.

You might see around on the media mostly headlines talking about the negative parts of X-Men: Apocalypse but he really said much, much more. Like when he met with Nicolas Winding Refn on a restaurant and talked for 4 hours until they aligned what would be his character in Drive. Or when he met with JJ Abrams on a cafe in Paris and did read the whole Star Wars: The Force Awakens script on his iPhone. Or about Inside Llewyn Davis, when he met a guy in a movie set, the guy played in a Dave Van Ronk style and gave Oscar guitar lessons for the movie audition. Or A Most Violent Year, which was filmed near his home, and because of Jessica Chastain which he went to school and Julliard together. He said when he met Jessica he just finished Ex-Machina and was with shaved head and a big beard and she was like “Oh, I don’t know if its the guy we’re looking for”. Or his nerd site taking all the space when he start talking about Ex-Machina.

It’s Oscar Isaac’s Year

Dujour.com — In 1981, it was no walk in the park to live in New York City. Over the course of 12 months, the city was reportedly home to over 2,000 murders and more robberies than ever previously committed. Cupcake shops were not opening on a regular basis. In director J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year, businessman Abel Morales (played by Oscar Isaac) attempts to navigate these brutal waters as his fortunes swell and the target on his back grows to keep pace.

More than 30 years later in a very different New York, Isaac himself is in the midst of an impressive ascent—albeit one marked by a lack of circling thugs. While the chorus of adulation for Isaac’s role in A Most Violent Year is still resounding, the Guatemalan-born actor doesn’t seem interested in pausing to enjoy it. In the coming months, he’ll appear opposite Mark Wahlberg and Garrett Hedlund in Mojave, he’ll star in the artificial intelligence thriller Ex-Machina and he’ll be deified by nerds everywhere for his roles in J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens as well as Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse.

It’s an impressive slate for the Julliard graduate, but he says each of the films was one that he just couldn’t pass up. “Being asked to inhabit the psyche of someone over a period of time, it’s got to be a bit like falling in love,” he says. “You know, you can’t really quantify exactly why you want to play a particular part, but it’s something you just keep thinking about, that doesn’t leave your mind. That’s the barometer in how I choose a role.”

Still, Isaac’s quick to admit that choosing a job that involves light sabers is remarkably easy. “Not only are there these iconic props, but the sets, vehicles, droids and all these characters—you’re interacting with the characters that have been a part of everyone’s life for such a long time,” he says of Star Wars, for which he plays X-Wing fighter Poe Dameron. “Sometimes I pinch myself because it’s actually happening; it’s wild! But it’s funny, because you still have to do the same job you’re hired to do, which is between ‘action’ and ‘cut’ to be alive, be truthful and tell the story.”

Isaac, who got his big break in the 2013 Coen brothers movie Inside Llewyn Davis, says there’s no one sort of character or film that he finds appealing.

“In film it’s not the same as in theater, where you’re like, OK, I definitely want to give Hamlet a crack, or I want to play Willy Loman,” Isaac, who admits he aspires to one day direct, says. “There isn’t so much that one that I’m looking to do, it’s more about working with certain directors and finding stories that are compelling.”
That was certainly the case with Chandor and A Most Violent Year. Isaac’s Morales is an up-and-coming oil titan whose fleet of trucks—not to mention his family—is being terrorized by his competitor’s goons, but who refuses to lower himself to their level. It was a mindset Isaac took pains to understand.

“I had some issues figuring out why he was making his decisions,” Isaac says, “particularly the nonviolent choices, like why he felt so strongly against getting a gun to protect himself even though he was getting threats from all sides, and against his family.”

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ star Oscar Isaac used his own ‘Jedi’ mindtrick for role

NYDailyNews.com The first movie the ‘A Most Violent Year’ actor saw in the movie theater as a child was ‘Return of the Jedi,’ and now he’s flying his own X-Wing Fighter.

At 35, Oscar Isaac is a serious and accomplished actor, but the night before he was due on the set of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” he reverted to the four-year-old who first fell in love with the franchise.

“I remember being in my hotel room and using a shampoo bottle for an X-wing and flying it around my room,” Isaac told the Daily News. “That’s how you tap back into that spirit.” He may not play a Jedi in the movie—while he won’t spill details about the upcoming movie, it’s clear from the trailer that he gets to pilot an X-Wing Fighter bigger than a shampoo bottle—but the Force is strong in Isaac.

“I was a big fan,” says the star of “A Most Violent Year.” “The first movie I remember seeing in a theater was (1983’s) ‘Return of the Jedi.'”

Fast-forward 32-years and Isaac is living a dream shared by many “Star Wars” fanatics. “In fact, I realized that was the key to the character and into the world,” added Isaac, “was reverting back to that childlike feeling.”

Isaac will have plenty of chances in the coming year to tap into that feeling: in addition to the highly anticipated J.J. Abrams-directed “The Force Awakens” that’s set for release on Dec. 18, Isaac is starring in “X-Man: Apocalypse” as the villain Apocalypse, as well as in “Ex-Machina” as a somewhat creepy scientist.

“I really do like Sci-fi,” Isaac said. “It’s never about aliens and mutants and robots (for me), it’s actually about the human condition and us trying to express something about existence and the mystery of it.”

If his string of Sci-fi flicks makes him into a “geek god” of sorts, he’d happily take the mystery out of that. “Well, I guess a geek god that’s also a geek,” the Golden Globe-nominated actor admitted.

There’s nothing geeky about Isaac’s starring role as Abel Morales in “A Most Violent Year” alongside Jessica Chastain. “He is someone who is very confident in their vision and everything that he’s doing is exactly that,” he said of the J.C. Chandor film out this month.
