Oscar Isaac Talks About Playing Poe Dameron in 'The Force Awakens'

By: Dominic Jones

Oscar Isaac is still out and about promoting A Most Violent Year, which is great for us Star Wars fans as anyone who interviews him, can't help but bring up The Force Awakens.  Isaac chatted with the Latin Post recently and the topics of his role in The Force Awakens, Poe Dameron, was brought up.  Here's what he had to say,

Latin Post: You were just cast as Apocalypse in "X-Men" and just wrapped on "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." Does the scale of such films demand a different kind of preparation or approach for you?
Oscar Isaac: Certainly more people will see it, but the job remains the same. It's about creating a character and how do you embody the aspects that people were trying to express when they created them in the comics with "X-Men," especially since it is an iconic villain. Apocalypse definitely needs to be fleshed out on film. And with "Star Wars" it was about creating a believable person in this massive fantastic universe.

It's good to hear that Isaac is taking his roles seriously (and why wouldn't he, he's a huge fan!)
