Adam Driver Birthday Special: From Adam Sackler to Kylo Ren, 7 Roles That Endeared This Hollywood Hunk to Us (LatestLY Exclusive)

Adam Driver is someone whose towering frame begs for more tall jokes to be made. And yet the actor’s hunkiness, wicked sense of humour and ability to be a fantastic actor, instead make us end singing praises of him. Who can blame John Oliver for crushing over Adam Driver using the most hilarious phrases throughout the latest season of The Tonight Show, prompting the Star Wars actor to make a surprise appearance in the finale of the show! Ben Affleck’s Son Samuel Is a Huge Kylo Ren Fan and the Star Wars Actor Adam Driver Had the Best Birthday Surprise For Him.

Adam Driver balances blockbuster entertainment with appearances in films like Star Wars to tackling indie flicks like Marriage Story. Also an theatre artiste, his breakout role came out from the acclaimed dramedy series, Girls. Now he is one of the in-demand actor, who already has two Oscar nominations in his bag at age of 37.

BTW, Adam Driver is turning that age on November 19, 2020, and we use this occasion to not only wish this incredible actor Many Many Happy Returns of the Day. But also, to list down seven of the many favourite roles of ours.

Adam Sackler in Girls

Of course, what else could have we have to begin this list? Sackler. like most of the show’s leads, starts off on a like-him/hate-him note as the emotionally unstable boyfriend of the main lead. However, as the show progresses, his character also improves, with Adam Driver’s likeable performance turning Sackler into one of the few things worth rooting for in Girls.

Allan in What If?

Adam Driver in What If?

While Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan are the main leads in this enjoyable romcom, it is the pairing of Adam Driver and Mackenzie Davis that is an easy highlight of the film (also titled The F Word). Adam Driver plays an easy-going animator who gets into a relationship worth his attitude, that contrasts against the reluctant one his best friend has with the girl he loves.

Kylo Ren in Star Wars Sequel Trilogy

Adam Driver in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

The Skywalker Saga, whose final outing The Last Skywalker came out in 2019, has left Star Wars fans with mixed emotions. But many would agree that Adam Driver’s conflicted antagonist was one of the few positives of the trilogy. He is absolutely excellent as the Jedi who has gone to the Dark Side, and even commits patricide in the process. But there is still some of the Good Force in him to not turn him into a megalomaniac, though he crushes those Force-choke scenes, while girls got their crush over that one shirtless scene in The Last Jedi.

Playing the titular role in this drama, Adam Driver underplays himself beautifully as a bus driver who leads a monotonous but content life, writing beautiful poems in his free time. It is a quiet, dignified performance from the actor, that deserves more eyeballs.

Clyde Logan in Logan Lucky

Steven Soderbergh’s heist-comedy has its highlight in Daniel Craig’s scene-stealing turn as a safe-cracker. But Adam Driver is also enjoyable enough to watch as one of the two Logan brothers, who attempts a heist during a NASCAR rally. Sharing an nice camaraderie with the other ‘Logan brother’ – Channing Tatum – Driver puts in a restrained but entertaining act here.

Detective Philip Zimmerman in BlacKkKlansman

Spike Lee’s historical black satirical comedy is awesome for many reasons, Driver’s performance included. Driver and John David Washington play Colorado Springs detectives looking to expose the KKK activities. Zimmerman is sent to infiltrate into one such ‘Klan’, but what begins as a mere job, becomes more than that, when the Jew in him is enraged by his ‘group”s anti-semitic attitude, but he has to grin and bear it without exposing his cover. Driver earned his first Academy Award nom (for Best Supporting Actor) here.

Charlie Barber in Marriage Story

Adam Driver in Marriage Story

From Best Supporting Actor nom to Best Actor nod, Driver’s performance in this Noah Baumbach’s film is among his finest. A heartbreaking deconstruction of what seems to be a normal marriage, Driver and Scarlett Johansson play a couple whose tiffs and fights feel so real-life. Driver, particular, is excellent as the selfish husband, hankering his own rage issues on his partner. The highlight of his performance is of course that famous outburst scene, now having become a meme of sort.

Drew Barrymore Opens Up About Her Love for Cooking, Says ‘It Is Both Ritualistic and Romantic’

Hollywood actress Drew Barrymore says cooking is very important to her, ritualistic and romantically. “Cooking is something very near and dear to my heart and important to me and ritualistic and romantic. One of the ways I self-educated myself growing up, because I didn’t go to school, was I became a reader, a voracious reader,” Barrymore told IANS. “After I had children I basically stopped reading, anyone who has children knows why, and the thing I transferred to was cookbooks, and I became a voracious cookbook collector. Drew Barrymore Opens Up on Divorce from Will Kopelman, Says ‘It Felt like Everything Was Just Wrong’

I average about 2 or 3 cookbooks a week. I fell in love with the art of sitting down on a couch with a cookbook and in about 20 minutes you can really dive in and sometimes as a working mother that is an insane task to accomplish. Life is so busy and so full that it’s hard to take time for yourself,” she added. At the moment, she is busy with “The Drew Barrymore Show”, which she hosts and backs as producer. The show brings forward positive stories, humour along with celebrity guest interviews. Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler Reboot 50 First Dates for a Funny Pandemic Parody (Watch Video)

“I have a lot of different interests. It’s why I really loved directing because I could go to work and think about the music I loved or casting, production design, editing, writing, art, literature, travel, wonderment, imagination, comedy, chemistry, romance. I could put it all into this one job. And this is exactly what a talk show has the opportunity to do and we can incorporate all of them into the show like cookbook club,” she said. “The Drew Barrymore Show” airs on Zee Cafe in India.
