Love Him or Hate Him – Adam Driver Bringing Arts to the Armed Forces

Kylo Ren may have his own Twitter Account (See @KyloR3n), and you may love or hate his role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens as the “villain” in J.J. Abrams take on the Star Wars universe, but there is something charming and humbling to see an actor take a step back to recognize his roots.

Adam Driver, a marine (marines are always marines, never former) has taken the opportunities afforded to him to share the spoken arts with the various branches of United State’s Armed Forces. In this video captured by VICE News you get to see a very humbling scene where Adam and his group of actors pass out flyers and hustle to get a small number of service men and women to attend their production. Please take a moment to watch the video above, it really builds some respect (at least for me) for what Driver brought to his role in Star Wars but as an actor, marine and human being.

AITAF programming accentuates the shared humanity of all Americans by using performance to unite artists and service members and encourage dialogue. AITAF enlists artists of the highest quality and chooses thought-provoking content with an eye to what might speak to this particular audience.”
