Oscar Isaac sings Bill Murray's 'Star Wars' theme, is cooler than you

Posted on

In the last couple of years, Oscar Isaac has distinguished himself as an actor who can thrive in just about any scenario. He can be a sad sack folk singer, a shrewd businessman looking to make the next step, a mad genius who just cracked artificial intelligence, or as we’ll see in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, an ace pilot. 

But it should be said that Oscar Isaac is also very good when put into a suit and told to riff with a guitar. 

That’s what happened when GQ got together with Isaac to shoot the cover of their new issue, and boy, did Isaac deliver. What he delivered specifically is an updated version of Bill Murray’s classic SNL rendition of the Star Wars theme. He even works in a mention of Kylo Ren, no small feat for any songwriter.
