The first time we saw Adam Driver on Girls, he took our breath away. He’s not classic movie-star handsome, but some how his discordant features—the sleepy eyes, the long nose, the big lips—coalesce to create the hunky grown of version of that straight friend we always secretly had a crush on.
The one who stuck up for us when the other kids were calling us names.
GQ was smart enough to put Driver on the cover of their September issue, and the adjoining feature lists just some of this rising star’s many upcoming projects:
Over the past couple of years, Driver has been in the midst of a transformation, from the most unexpected star of a cult TV show to being “probably one of the most sought-after actors around,” says director Shawn Levy, who moved heaven and earth—in the form of the schedules of Jason Bateman and Tina Fey—to cast Driver in the role of the perpetually adolescent younger brother in this month’s This Is Where I Leave You.
The movie is the first in a veritable avalanche of prominent films Driver will soon appear in, among them Jeff Nichols’s Midnight Special, Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young and Martin Scorsese’s Silence.
Did we mention he’s also in the new Star Wars movie? NBD.
