Isaac Cast in the Indie Film “Partisan”

Oscar Isaac will be a dangerously partisan father in his next film.

The 33-year-old Guatemalan-born actor of Cuban and Guatemalan descent, the star of the upcoming Joel and Ethan Coen-directed Inside Llewyn Davis, has been cast in the indie film Partisan.

Written and directed by Ariel Kleiman, the film is described as a confronting fable about a vengeful man raising his children to attack the world that wronged him.

Isaac’s credits include The Nativity Story, Drive, Sucker Punch, W.E. and The Bourne Legacy.

Isaac’s Original Song for “10 Years” Gets Oscar Buzz

He’s made an impression on Hollywood with his striking good looks and acting abilities… But Oscar Isaac’s recent project could have music industry executives taking note.

Oscar Isaac in 10 Years

The 32-year-old Guatemalan-born actor recently starred in 10 Years, the Jamie Linden-directed high school reunion ensemble film with Channing Tatum, Rosario Dawson, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Aubrey Plaza and several others.

Isaac, best known for his roles in The Bourne Legacy, Drive and W.E., plays a famous musician who returns home for his high school reunion and gets into some serious shenanigans with old friends. But it’s his performance of the original song he actually wrote for the film that’s drawing a lot of attention, including some Oscar buzz for Best Original Song.

“Once I got the role, the producers were sending me different possibilities for songs. But I’ve been playing and writing music my whole life, and thought that I would love to take on the challenge of creating a song that we can use for the movie,” says Isaac. “So I wrote a song called ‘Never Had,’ and he loved it, and I ended up performing the song live in the movie.”

10 Years was released on DVD last month.

Meanwhile, Isaac will soon appear on the big screen in the Coen Brothers-directed ‘60s folk music film Inside Llewyn Davis.

Oscar Isaac: Bourne to Act

There’s no denying that a star is Bourne in Hollywood’s latest blockbuster. And, his name is Oscar Isaac.

Prepare to take notice of the 32-year-old Guatemalan/Cuban actor in the latest film in the Bourne franchise, Bourne Legacy, which stars Jeremy Renner. It’s his most high profile role to date… But, like his character, he’s keeping mum about his role.

“I can’t give many details without ruining the suspense,” says Isaac. “I can only tell you that I play Agent 3, a very mysterious guy,” says Isaac. “You never know what his motivations are or where his loyalties lie.”

When he’s not working on a project, Isaac likes to lay low in Miami, the city where he grew up and has made his home.

Isaac doesn’t open up much about his private life. Why? He doesn’t want to be a show business personality. He just wants to lose himself in his characters.

“I like being like a chameleon who transforms himself with each role,” says Isaac.

His first major film role was as Joseph in the film The Nativity Story. His credits include All About the Benjamins, the Che Guevara biopic Guerrilla and Body of Lies, where he worked with Leonardo Di Caprio. Most recently he appeared in the Madonna-directed W.E.

So what’s next for Isaac? He just finished filming Inside Llewin Davis, the latest project by two of his movie idols, brothers Joel and Ethan Cohen.

“I play a folk music singer of the 1970s and I had the opportunity to write five songs that are going to come out on the film’s soundtrack,” he says enthusiastically.

Bourne Legacy opened in theaters nationwide today.
