Oscar Isaac is a big Star Wars fan, so being cast in Episode VII is important to him. Speaking to The Sunday Times Culture section, Isaac had this to say:

“I could not be more excited to be a part of the Star Wars saga. It still seems hard to believe. Star Wars is a huge part of my family. Collecting toys, throwing themed parties. We had a big one for Return Of The Jedi. I came as a gonk droid.”

The fact that he even knows what a gonk droid is secures his geek cred. 😉

He’s also an admirer of Episode VII director J.J. Abrams:

“There are some big movies that are quite good. And interesting, and have interesting stories. I think one person in particular is JJ, JJ Abrams. He makes really good stories. He puts a lot of heart into them. They don’t feel like they’re just exploitive.”

Of course, everyone knows that Abrams likes an air of secrecy surrounding his projects, and Episode VII probably won’t be too different. Isaac is okay with that:

“I think there are a lot of different films you can be surprised by, and that have the element of the unknown and I think it is very important. It’s very important. That’s why I do understand some secrecy with certain films, not wanting to let it out.”

Star Wars Episode VII is due for release December 18, 2015.
