Adam Driver

Five films by one of today's busiest actors.

California-born Adam Driver chose a career in the army at an early age, specifically in the navy, which he was forced to leave due to an injury, and then went on to study drama at the Juilliard School in New York. He gained attention for his portrayal of Adam Sackler in the cult TV series Girls, and not long afterwards a great run of smaller roles (Lincoln, Frances Ha, Inside Llewyn Davis) launched his career. The big breakthrough in Driver's career came with a starring role in Martin Scorsese's Silence and, of course, the character of Kylo Ren in the Star Wars saga. His memorable roles definitely include the bus driver with the soul of a poet in Jarmusch's Paterson and, of course, those that earned him Academy Award nominations in BlacKkKlansman and Marriage Story. More recently, he has shone in Annette Leox Carax's musical, Ridley Scott's House of Gucci, and most recently in director Michael Mann's biopic Ferrari.
