Chicago – One of more memorable performances of 2013 is from an actor who has been a bit under the radar – Oscar Isaac. After character parts in several familiar films, like “The Nativity Story,” “Sucker Punch” and “The Bourne Legacy,” Isaac steps out as the lead in the new Coen Brothers film, “Inside Llewyn Davis.”

The Guatemalan born actor grew up in Miami, and graduated from the Julliard School in New York City – in the same class as Jessica Chastain. He also played guitar and sang lead vocals in a band, which prepared him well for his role as folk singer Llewyn Davis. He has moved up the movie star chain after landing his first role as Joseph in “The Nativity Story” (2006), and has worked steady as a movie actor ever since.
