Fare Thee Well My Katy Perry: ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ Star Oscar Isaac Covers “Roar” On Jimmy Fallon

Oscar Isaac is everywhere at the moment and this is a good thing; the deeply underrated actor is gaining major plaudits for his lead role in the Coen Brothers “Inside Llewyn Davis.” Not only is Isaac immensely talented as a thespian, the guy can actually really play a mean guitar lick and howl a good tune.

Oscar Isaac Covers “Roar” On Jimmy Fallon

Oscar Isaac is everywhere at the moment and this is a good thing; the deeply underrated actor is gaining major plaudits for his lead role in the Coen Brothers “Inside Llewyn Davis.” Not only is Isaac immensely talented as a thespian, the guy can actually really play a mean guitar lick and howl a good tune (it’s the reason he got the Coen Brothers gig over bigger stars). We listed the actors among our 10 Overlooked Actors Who Deserve Some Awards Season Attention list and he’s certainly going to go on bigger and better things (if this year wasn’t so crazy, he’d be a shoo-in for an Oscar nomination; as it stands it could still happen). 

“If it was never new and get never gets old it’s a folk song,” Llewyn Davis says in the movie, and so to that perhaps ironic effect, he played a folk cover of Katy Perry’s “Roar” on Jimmy Fallon last night. Check it out below and read our recent interview with Isaac.
