About the Film
Role: Father Francisco Garrpe
U.S. Distributor: Paramount Pictures
U.S. Release Date: N/A
Why? Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens should be his cinematic breakthrough as far as the general public is concerned, while Silence – being a Martin Scorsese passion project and all – might be his Serious Acting breakthrough.
Why not? Category placement and internal competition might hurt Driver and favor Andrew Garfield or Liam Neeson.
