Watch Girls' Adam Driver Jump Around On An NYC Rooftop

NOWNESS, a must-see destination for the culturally curious, has lived in our bookmarks tab for eons. Now, the innovative hub for everything from renowned gastronomes to Norwegian craftsmen is coming to R29.
With Chelsea’s Hudson River as the backdrop, Adam Driver reaches new heights in this kinetic portrait by So It Goes magazine. The roguish actor and leading male star of Lena Dunham’s hit series Girls has had a wayward journey from his childhood in Mishawaka, Indiana, to a recent role in Noah Baumbach’s black-and-white comedy drama Frances Ha, via stints as a vacuum salesman, Marine, and undergraduate at New York’s Juilliard School for performing arts.
These coy and candid moments are soundtracked by Stones Throw records' rising hip-hop star Jonwayne, and reveal 29-year-old Driver's raw magnetism, as well as hinting at his frustration of being medically discharged after two years in the US armed forces — a rejection that he feels provided the springboard for his recent creative renewal. “The Marine Corps is an organization that prides itself on communicating and working as a cohesive unit,” says Driver, who is looking ahead to the next season of Girls and Baumbach's next film, While We Were Young, set for release in 2015. “We had acronyms for everything but the emphasis really wasn't on explaining a shared experience or talking things through. I felt like I had something I wanted to say but I didn't know how to say it — I still don’t really.”
