“It was hard to hide inside to find these people,” Driver said. “It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do in my entire life.”
Adam Driver has broken the internet again.
After transforming into a centaur in Burberry’s cologne campaign, Driver is now proving his chameleon-like acting prowess ahead of the Super Bowl in a new Squarespace ad. Hundreds of drivers descend on a production set, and the “White Noise” actor explains why he only works with high-profile talent like himself.
“Honestly, I thought it was going to be really good because I don’t like other actors,” says a moody alter ego of Driver. “So the idea that for the first time I can act myself, I can control the pace of the set.”
He adds: “It was a bit difficult to hide inside myself to find these people. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do in my entire life.”
Another version of Driver screams “websites make websites!” while practicing in advertising, and another explains why Driver has a secret passion for “painting and growing nuts” when shifting.
A deadpan Driver goes meta-method as he mocks the elitist pre-production rituals of acting.
“I couldn’t be happier to do this commercial with Squarespace and the Super Bowl,” said Driver. Rolling stone. “It was SOLELY because of the cast.”
Driver will next star in “65,” the upcoming thriller from “A Quiet Place” screenwriters Beck/Woods, Michael Mann’s biopic “Ferrari,” and Francis Ford Coppola’s star-studded “Megalopolis.” Driver recently made headlines for defending Coppola’s big-budget set amid rumors of a “crew walkout” due to a difficult production.
Of course, the “Girls” alum isn’t the only Oscar-nominated internet friend in the running for a 2023 Super Bowl spot. Timothée Chalamet gave his bones and everything to an Apple Originals ad, turning on his sad-boy charm and lamenting why he hasn’t starred in another critically-acclaimed Apple movie yet.
“I could do TV,” says Chalamet, looking at a billboard for “Ted Lasso” Season 3, adding, “The ‘breakup’ is weird. I could do something weird,” he adds. “Black Bird.” I think I could go to jail.”
And finally, “Killers of the Flower Moon” is where Chalamet is most interested: “Scorsese, DiCaprio, De Niro,” he sings. “Hey Apple, call me?”
