Jimmy and The Roots join Oscar Isaac, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford for an a cappella tribute to “Star Wars.”
Digital scans of GQ magazine featuring Oscar on its cover has been added to our gallery, with the help of my friend Annie.
Oscar’s younger brother, Mike Hernandez, is a journalist at Miami New Times.
With the advent of Star Wars promotion, he joined his brother to a very funny video interview that you can now watch at their website.
The two Hernandez boys met at a Star Wars bar in Miami to talk about their lives growing up, the changes in the neighborhood, and the difference between a character having a “theme” and a “theme song.”
They also examine the various action figures and illustrations of Poe Dameron. It’ s a pretty combative interview, right up until they settle their differences with Street Fighter, and Hernandez’s accompanying essay dives even further into their lives growing up in hurricane country.

Oscar is on cover of cover of GQ magazine’s January 2016 issue, on newsstands nationally on December 22.
It features a great interview, in which he shares about his insecurity on doing Star Wars.
I actually felt the most green and insecure than I had in a long time. I was like, What am I doing here? There was a lot of room to shade in the character. Every time I tried to do that, it would slow things down too much. J.J. would be like, ‘Get on with it, man!’ Just, Louder! Faster! And then I would feel like I was doing that all the time. It felt weird and like I was not being creative. I would get nervous I wasn’t finding enough or I was missing an opportunity.
You can check the full interview at GQ website, and check the HQ photoshoot added in our gallery.
Oscar attended last night the star-studded and emotional premiere for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” in Hollywood. In among of my desperate try to avoid any spoilers, I can point a very good EW article with the Kathleen Kennedy speech during the premiere.
Check in our gallery the first batch of pictures from the red carpet. Hopefully more to come soon.
People Magazine released this month a Star Wars special edition and, thanks to my friend Tiffany, I have scans added in our gallery.
Last Tuesday Oscar, Lupita Nyong’o and film producer Kathleen Kennedy attended the ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Mexico City premiere fan event at Cinemex Antara Polanco. Two days later, on Thursday, he and Lupita visited the Despierta America. You will find now photos of both events in our gallery.
