Oscar Isaac is officially the nicest nephew in Hollywood. The Guatemalan actor’s Hollywood dreams came true when he was cast for the upcoming “Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens” but he didn’t keep the glory for himself. Instead Isaac got his uncle an extra role in a scene they played together! The actor, who appeared in the April issue of Details magazine, explained how his uncle–a hard-core “Star Wars” fan–totally freaked out when he learned Isaac had gotten the role and made t-shirts that said “Estar Guars: Episode VII.” The actor then handed them to everyone on set, and told J.J. Abrams, “who was like, ‘Does he wanna be in the movie?’” and as a result, “He's an extra in a scene with me. How amazing is that?” said Isaac.

In the interview with the magazine, Isaac also opened up about what it’s like to be compared with actors he admires so much, especially Oscar winner Al Pacino for his performance in “A Most Violent Year” for which he won the Best Actor award from The National Board of Review of Motion Pictures. “The fact that I would even be mentioned in the same breath as Pacino, and particularly his performances in “The Godfather” and “Dog Day Afternoon”, is insane,” Isaac said. “I take it all with a grain of salt.”
