    Oscar Isaac Scores The Lead In The Coen Brothers Folk Music Movie 'Inside Llewyn Davis’

    If you've been paying attention, you probably already know that Oscar Isaac is poised to be a major star. The actor has already logged time with folks like Steven Soderbergh ("Che"), Ridley Scott ("Body Of Lies," "Robin Hood") and Alejandro Amenábar ("Agora") but 2011 is proving to be banner year.
