Doesn't it seem like Oscar Isaac is everywhere these days?! If he keeps this up, Isaac is going to be a household name for all sorts of geeks by the end of the decade: fresh off of the presses, Deadline has announced that the [Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens](movie:711158) actor will appear as the title villain in FOX's [X-Men: Apocalypse](movie:1194267)!

Yes, indeed.
Yes, indeed.

What's particularly interesting about this casting is that Isaacs was rumored to be in talks with [Marvel](channel:932254) for a very different role within the Marvel Universe: Doctor Strange. While this, along with the news that [Sherlock](series:201416)'s Benedict Cumberbatch is up for the role of the Sorcerer Supreme, might quell those rumors fast. Which makes this gif extremely appropriate...

She could totally be Jean Grey.

Isaac is also the star of [A Most Violent Year](movie:967523), A24's dramatic look back at New York City in one of its' darkest, bloodiest times. The young actor has been building an impressive roster as of recent, and is definitely one to keep an eye on.

We'll be seeing a lot of him soon!

I mean, the guy was a hit in [Inside Llewyn Davis](movie:250255), and he's rumored to be the new owner of the Millennium Falcon. I would keep my on on him, for sure! Also, If you're looking for a possible sneak peek at Mr. Isaac in Star Wars, you might see him this weekend.
