Oscar Isaac’s Poe Dameron!

Oscar Isaac explains in the new issue of GQ that before signing on to movie, he was originally told that his character Poe Dameron would die after a TIE fighter crash in the beginning of the film.

“I went back home [to New York], and I thought about it,” Oscar said. “Then I wrote [Abrams] and said, ‘Okay. I’ll do it!’ I figured it would be a cameo: I’ll come in, do my thing, and maybe it’s actually better not to have to sign myself up for three movies.”

Director JJ Abrams then replied to the email and said, “Never mind. I’ve figured it out. You’re in the whole movie now.”

    Thank God he didn’t die because he’s one of the most important things in the movie tbh

    Love how JJ wrote in three “minorities” as main characters.

    Thank you, JJ. Poe was my favorite character in the movie.

  • Jonathan Barker

    Okay, I get it, but at what point did he give up his mission looking for the droid and just give up and go home? Seems illogical that he would just assume the stormtrooper he just met like 5 minutes ago would get the job done for him. Conveniently thanks to writers it worked out that way, but how could he have known that?!

    Fuck you. He disappeared and then showed up later with no legit reason given.
