    Adam driver is so overrated, i watched em in two movies recently the Almost Perfect one Frances Ha and charming yet incomplete movie without any ending to any of its stories “Inside Llwyne Davis” and he was the same guy … in former he wasn’t that weird but in later even in his 1 song he was horrible and cringing .

    He has an amazing agent. I can see him working in Star Wars.

    He’s a good actor and the breakout star of Girls

    Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh as the biggest Star Wars fan in the world, I do have my doubts on this. He doesn’t have the right….face. I don’t want to sound shallow or anything but I don’t know, I’m not feeling it. I’m scared that they’re gonna screw up the whole Star Wars thing.

    Based on Girls, he seems like a very interesting actor

    Star Wars fans should put the breaks on their worries of anyone ‘ruining’ the Star Wars legacy. The prequels already did that. Bringing on Adam Driver isn’t gonna do more damage than introducing Jar Jar Binks and Lucas’s rampant racism.
