You can imagine that, as a lifelong Star Wars fan, Oscar Isaac is thrilled to be playing a role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The Episode VII star, who we know from the teaser trailer is playing an X-wing pilot, recently talked to MTV's Josh Horowitz about how excited he is to be in the film, as well as how quick the casting process was. You can watch in the above video.
We also recently revealed new information about Isaac's role in the beginning of the film. For all of the (very little) officially confirmed information about Isaac's yet-to-be-named character, check out Wookieepedia.
