Adam Driver really lived up to his last name. An occasional theatre performer and singer in his suburban Indiana high school, the intense but directionless Driver signed up for the Marines shortly after 9/11 and spent nearly three years training for overseas combat before being honorably discharged. After graduating from the famed Juilliard School, Driver brought his darkly magnetic presence to a string of minor TV appearances and landed small roles in HBO's Dr. Kevorkian biopic "You Don't Know Jack" (2010) and the lumbering "J. Edgar" (2011). But it was his performance on the buzzy, bruising "Girls" (HBO, 2012- ) as Adam Sackler, Lena Dunham's emotionally complicated boyfriend, that brought him into the spotlight. Big-screen roles in Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" (2012), the Coen Brothers' folk-scene homage "Inside Llewyn Davis" (2013), and Noah Baumbach's indie hit "Frances Ha" (2012) ensured he stayed there. But his nuanced performance as Rylo Ken in the much-anticipated "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" (2015) brought Driver to a whole new level of international superstardom. In between films, Driver co-founded Arts in the Armed Forces, a non-profit organization that staged theatrical and musical performances for members of the military.
