Default Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron



Quote:
Now there’s a name weighted with significance. Some fans have already gleaned an intense, not necessarily welcoming vibe off of Oscar Isaac’s X-Wing pilot, and a first name taken from a writer who chronicled the sinister side of human nature would suggest that this is a character who is on the edge of the light/dark divide. Those characters, like Han Solo and Vader himself, are always the most interesting ones. His name is also an almost-spoonerism of Cameron Poe, the character Nicolas Cage played in Con Air. Coincidence? (Probably, yeah.)

Poe Dameron is such a Star Wars name. Same with Kylo Ren.

– The Aurebesh on Poe Dameron’s (Oscar Isaac) vest translates to “pull to inflate.” Fans who know how to read Aurebesh figured that out the weekend the trailer was released and also pointed out that the text is upside down.

Love that other people picked up on the Cameron Poe thing.

Damn it, now I want to see Nicolas Cage show up in a Star Wars movie as Darth Wickerman or Bad Lieutenant Hi McDunnough or Cas-Tor Troi.

Vulture - How Oscar Isaac Got His Star Wars Superfan Uncle an Extra Gig in the New Movie

This is how cool Oscar Isaac is. When he got a part in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (also known as Episode VII), he let director J.J. Abrams in on a little family secret — he comes from a family of Star Wars geeks. "My family couldn't even believe it, it was the most amazing thing that ever could have happened," Isaac told us on Sunday at a Peggy Siegal–hosted reception for his most recent film, A Most Violent Year. "My uncle, my brother, my cousin are all Star Wars geeks. They're like the biggest Star Wars fans of all time. My uncle almost passed out when he found out." So Isaac arranged for his uncle to visit the set, where Abrams surprised him with an offer he couldn't refuse. "He asked him, 'You want to be in the movie?' And so he put him in as an extra!" Isaac said. "Isn't that the most amazing thing?"

What his uncle gets to do, or, for that matter, everything he gets to do, Isaac can't reveal just yet — "I can't tell you any of that stuff!" — but he will admit to being a fan of the new-and-improved lightsabers. "They do look very cool." Isaac's never been to Comic-Con, but with his his first trip there on the horizon, as he'll surely go to promote Star Wars and X-Men: Apocalypse, he's contemplating whether or not to go in costume. "Maybe I'll go as a gonk droid. Then I can observe anonymously."

Yahoo! Movies - Oscar Isaac Says Your 'Star Wars' Theories Are Totally Wrong

...

Isaac was able to comment briefly on the shot we saw of him sitting in the X-Wing fighter plane, an experience in a very real and tactile vehicle that he called “a dream come true.”

"It was hard to believe that I was actually sitting in there and doing that," he said. "And it’s physical. You have to kind of get in touch with that child again that had a little X-Wing and would fly around his room making crazy sounds, you had to tap into that spirit again and that was a lot fun. There was a lot of practical effects. A lot of the stuff they actually made. There wasn’t a lot of green screen."

I wouldn't be surprised if Isaac's comments are relating to either the Evil Luke rumor, or about Adam Drivers role as a villain. It's very possible he is indeed a common X-Wing pilot. It's not likely, as variety is a reliable source, but given some rumors have been reported to have spawned from the now defunct Arnt script it's very possible he's not Kylo Ren as well.
