Having enjoyed the limelight earlier this year in the Disney+ series Moon Knight, Oscar Isaac is now showing an active interest in returning to an extraordinary and notable film series he was a part of. The world saw Isaac as Poe Dameron in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, which marked his first appearance in the much-celebrated Star Wars franchise. He was last seen in The Rise of Skywalker. While the Star Wars sequel trilogy continues to divide the fans who share mixed feelings about it, one thing that they have enjoyed and ever since yearned for again is Oscar Isaac’s portrayal of Poe Dameron.
There have been many times when the actor has been questioned on whether or not we would see his return to the franchise. His response, this time around, shows that the actor is ever ready for such an opportunity. However, the Dune actor has his own requirements which also need to be met.
Which Franchise Is The Actor Better Known For?
In a recent interview with SiriusXM, it was established that the actor has a busy schedule. One that requires him to be at many places across the globe. However, this brought on a great question as the Ex Machina actor was asked which franchise is it that he is more commonly asked about or associated with when he travels around the world.
Isaac, who has been involved with franchises of a magnanimous scale, answered the following:
“So I’m up in here in this like, little, you know, little village up here [in Denmark]. And they had this very small music festival down here. And it was shockingly very young kids that were there. Uh, no, but it was like teenagers and stuff. It was like a couple times people would be like ‘Star wars! STAR WARS!’ They would just yell Star Wars at me.’
As we can see, Oscar Isaac is mainly associated with Star Wars and it is an unprecedented verdict. The actor also emphasized how great that recognition felt. When it comes to Moon Knight, the actor commented on how the association with the Disney+ series has been a “bit more”. The actor said how it’s mainly the “bigger tent projects” that his fans and the general audience usually equate with him.
Oscar Isaac On His Return As Poe Dameron
When the interviewer asked the actor whether or not he has considered the fact that he may “get to go back” to Poe Dameron, following the recent Star Wars endeavors or if has simply lost interest in such considerations, despite there being a chance of it, Isaac replied honestly that he does not have a “real feeling” about it and that he is open to such ideas. He commented:
“I don’t know… I mean, I am open to anything, you never know. But, uh, yeah. There’s no – I have no real feeling one way or the other. I am open to any kind of good story.”
Although, according to the actor, the main constraint that looms over his acting decisions is the lack of time. As the Star Wars alum is growing old, he is realizing the challenges of time, especially with having kids and the restrictions of having to fit so many things into a schedule. Therefore, time is the only condition that the actor has a hard time dealing with.
To conclude, the actor emphasized that if there is a good story, a good director, and if “Kathy [Kathleen Kennedy] came to me and said, ‘hey, we got this idea'” then Oscar Isaac is definitely open to considering a comeback to the franchise. Only the future can tell whether or not such an idea will be brought to fruition.
