Tapped by the Coen brothers for their ‘Inside Llewyn Davis,’ Oscar Isaac is grateful for the phone calls that end with a ‘yes’
ChicagoTribune.com — Four months before securing the title role in the Coen brothers movie “Inside Llewyn Davis,” Oscar Isaac was down in Miami, waiting, waiting, waiting to hear about a different job prospect, the lead in the latest “Bourne” film, “The Bourne Legacy.” Writer-director Tony Gilroy, Isaac tells me over breakfast, had told Isaac all along that he was it. He was The Guy. The movie wouldn’t be the same without him, Gilroy told him.
Isaac’s driving in his car. Gilroy calls, tells him to pull over. Small talk, small talk. Then Gilroy, according to Isaac, says: “Look, sorry, it’s not going to happen. The studio doesn’t want you, you’re not a known commodity.” Jeremy Renner got the role instead. (Isaac ended up with a supporting role, that of an auxiliary assassin.)
Four months later, Isaac’s doing a play in New York and waiting to hear about his recent audition for “Inside Llewyn Davis.” He’s walking to the theater, with his coffee, and it’s opening night.
Joel Coen calls. “And he’s talking for a long time,” Isaac says, so he begins to think: This is just like the Tony Gilroy phone call. I didn’t get the part. He feels sick. He throws his coffee away. Coen rambles on: “Sorry it took so long, there were some other people we needed to see. …” And then, sunshine: Isaac hears Coen offer him the part.
