Adam Driver

Adam Driver — who stars in “Paterson, “Silence,” and plays Lena Dunam’s on-again, off-again boyfriend in “Girls” — may be the Marlon Brando for millennials: masculine, but angsty and vulnerable. Driver talks to Kurt about his training — not at the Juilliard School of Drama, but as a Marine. “There’s a strong connection between the military and acting,” he tells Kurt. “You’re trying to accomplish a mission that’s greater than yourself, it’s not about you, you have to know your role within a team, and the pressure is really high.”
