Actor Oscar Isaac – dark haired with a thoughtful demeanor – may not be a Hollywood A-lister just yet, but he’s well on his way with a supporting role in “The Bourne Legacy” that helps set the tone for the dramatic, action-filled flick.
Isaac – born in Guatemala to a Guatemalan mother and Cuban father – plays Agent 3, a mysterious legacy of a carefully-guarded legion of genetically modified field agents of whom Jason Bourne had been part. But Jason Bourne is gone, and in his place, hero Alex Cross navigates a dark world of spies, government operatives and bureaucrats. And at his side? Isaac’s character.
“You never know what his motivations are or where his loyalties lie,” the 32-year-old told EFE about his role in the fourth installment of the “Bourne” franchise. Isaac, who studied acting at the Julliard School in New York City, is a notoriously private about his personal life, preferring to keep the focus on his work.
“I like being like a chameleon who transforms himself with each role,” he told EFE of his acting career, which includes films like “All About the Benjamins and Body of Lies.”
As for his next role, the curly-haired actor will be playing a 1970s era folk singer in the film “Inside Llewin Davis,” produced by Joel and Ethan Cohen.
