    What do you think his role will be? I personally think he will be one of the "New 3" and Ridley's love interest (though he looks kind of old for her, IMO).

    Perhaps I am mistaken on this point, but I thought it was indicated he would be a "Han Solo" type figure,

    Acording to an article the Wrap posted a few days ago. He was one of the main heroes with Boyega.

    20 years from now.....this guy will rival Harrison Ford/Han Solo as the most beloved SW character in every polls.....

    Unless he's a villain !

    I think he's the 40 year old military man. I'd guess he'll be a part of the Republic military and possibly a protege of Han Solo. I think like Han in ANH he'll be the character who has to get the heroes off planet when we have our inevitable escape sequence and becomes one of the new Big 3.

    I'll go wayyy out on a limb:

    3rd generation military man serving as a New Republic fighter pilot squadron leader. His grandfather fought in the Clone Wars for the Old Republic, and his father perished in the Battle of Endor. His father was a skilled Tie Fighter pilot & a good man by all accounts; just happened to be on the wrong team.

    Han Solo is the closest thing he has to a father figure. His personality traits have obviously rubbed off.

    Ridley's character has had a crush on him since childhood, and Isaac's character is aware of this, but he regards her as a "baby sister" type.

    Adam Driver's character resents Isaac's character and is always quick to bring up family past as a personal attack.

    I still have no idea whether him or Gleeson will be one of the trio, but I do think it's likely he'll be Ridley's love interest. Han Solo type fits, but military type makes a lot of sense to me. Possibly both? I don't think he'll be an actual Solo as some have speculated regardless though.

    If a clone had a kid which gave said clone a grandkid, it could look rather close to Oscar Isaac in the above pic.

    It would be interesting if he were playing a military officer with a clone in his family background. There's actually some dramatic potential there.

    Judging from the rumor and casting call info, I'd say he's going to be the Han or Lando of the new trilogy. Not part of the central trio of characters, but close enough to them to be a main hero. Remember, one of the characters on the casting call was a physically fit, military type around 40 years old, and Oscar Isaacs seems to fit the bill. He might be an Alliance officer/commando, or a smuggler/scoundrel similar to Han and Lando that gets caught up in the adventures of the new trio of characters.

    I'm guessing either:

    1. A smuggler/pirate like Han
    2. A Bounty hunter
    3. An imperial officer

    I'm not sure what side he's aligned with, but I'm guessing that he's gonna be the new Han type character

    He's got a bit of a 'Fel' vibe going for him. I could definitely see him as the military man, but I could also seem him as a Jedi/Sith.

    And they said Star Wars couldn't win an Oscar... so it cast one instead. :p

    And a damn fine actor at that.

    Given his age (35) and the age he looks to me (well, older than thirty-five), I'm not pegging Oscar as one of the "young trio," but I know the guy is a talent, so I hope he plays a beefy-enough role.

    But which role? As with some others, I'm thinking Isaac looks rather like he could be descended from Jango Fett in some way. I won't go so far as to say "Boba Fett's son," but grandchild of a clone? Why not?

    I have to say, I wouldn't mind that type of connective issue to the PT.

    Some writers in the blogosphere are saying that Isaac is going to be a villain, possibly an Imperial the likes of Thrawn. And that Boyega will be the new "Han Solo" kind of character, but will also be a Jedi. Thoughts?

    My guess is Isaacs is the Han type (other than Han obviously). I think Boyega will be a padawan but with a bit more edge/ cool than we're used to.

    I'd like to know if the Huffington Post has been given word that this is so, or if it's their supposition?
