Oscar Isaac talks Two Faces of January (and Star Wars)

oscar-isaac.jpg

Last year, you probably just knew him as "that guy from Drive" but after his star-making role in Inside Llewyn Davis, chances are you're more aware of the growing filmography of Oscar Isaac.

The ever-versatile actor adds another string to his bow this week with the Hitchockian thriller The Two Faces of January, where he plays a con artist who gets mixed up in murder after meeting a suspicious American couple on holiday, played by Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst.

Next up, he's going stratospheric with a major role in the new Star Wars trilogy. Action figures to follow...

We had a chance to speak to the actor and covered his tendency of playing morally dubious characters, his real feelings about the cat from Inside Llewyn Davis and whatever tidbits we could scrape together about Star Wars. We tried. Honest.

The Two Faces of January is in cinemas now

Inside Llewyn Davis is released on DVD and Blu-ray on 26th May
