Move Over Ryan Gosling, Girls' Adam Driver Is The Next It Dude

Here are a few things you'll learn from GQ's cover story on Girls slacker turned Star Wars stud. For starters, Adam Driver is married to actress Joanne Tucker. His parents are Baptist, and he used to sing in a church choir. He started a fight club in school. He feels guilty about being discharged from the Marines after breaking his sternum. And, he's pretty freaking deep.
"Here's the thing," he told the magazine. "Life's shitty, and we're all gonna die. You have friends, and they die. You have a disease, someone you care about has a disease, Wall Street people are scamming everyone, the poor get poorer, the rich get richer. That's what we're surrounded by all the time.
"We don't understand why we're here, no one's giving us an answer, religion is vague, your parents can't help because they're just people, and it's all terrible, and there's no meaning to anything. What a terrible thing to process! Every. Day. And, then you go to sleep. But, then sometimes, things can suspend themselves for like a minute, and then every once in a while there's something where you find a connection."

Laying down philosophical quotes is just one of Driver's many charms. He and his wife run Arts in the Armed Forces, a charity which sends actors to military bases. The work stems from his angst about leaving the Marines. As he puts it, "Like, I dropped the ball and got out and then became a fuckin' actor."
So, he's got character. He's polite. He's wary of sounding like a "pretentious fucking asshole." He's a leading man in every sense of the word.
