Adam Driver, one of the upcoming stars of modern cinema, has quite an impressive filmography

Adam Driver is set to star alongside Bill Murray in Jim Jarmusch’s zombie horror comedy, The Dead Don’t Die, that looks set to rival cult classics Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland.

Driver’s latest work, portraying Police Officer Ronald Peterson in The Dead Don’t Die, is set to release on June 14, 2019. 

But if you can’t wait until then, here’s a selection of Adam Driver films and TV shows to watch before you see The Dead Don’t Die.

Star Wars: Sequel Trilogy

Adam Driver has become the well-known actor he is thanks to his role as Kylo Ren/Ben Solo in the recent Star Wars trilogy.

Driver players the conflicted villain, Kylo Ren, with such genuine emotion and is without doubt the highlight of the sequel trilogy so far.

After appearing in 2015’s The Force Awakens and 2017’s The Last Jedi, Driver is set to return as Kylo Ren in 2019’s Episode IX.


Adam Driver received worldwide recognition for his role in BlacKkKlansman that earned him nominations for Best Supporting Actor at both the Academy Awards and the Golden Globes.

In BlacKkKlansman, Driver plays a Jewish cop who goes undercover in the KKK as the white counterpart for Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), a black cop who organises the infiltration of the hate group over the phone.


Ahead of Drivers role in The Dead Don’t Die, it may be worth checking out his previous collaboration with director Jim Jarmusch in Paterson. 

Driver plays the titular Paterson, a bus driver who writes poems in the short breaks he can find. His wife begs him to publish his poems but before he gets the chance, their dog chews up his notebook containing all his work.

Girls (TV Show)

Probably Driver’s biggest role on TV came in the show Girls, where Driver plays the character Adam Sackler throughout the five-season show.


Driver teams up with Liam Neeson and Andrew Garfield in Martin Scorsese’s 2016 film Silence. In the film, Driver and Garfield play Jesuit Priests, and we join them on their journey through Japan, looking for Neeson’s character who went missing in the prologue of the film.

In preparation for the role, Driver is reported to have lost around 50 pounds in weight.

Logan Lucky

Logan Lucky sees Driver join a star-studded cast that features the likes of Channing Tatum and Daniel Craig as they attempt to rob a Nascar racetrack. 

Driver plays Clyde Logan, a one-armed war veteran-turned barkeeper.  

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

And finally, we come to the last film on our list, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. 

Chances are sadly, that you’ll struggle to find a way to watch this film as it’s yet to have a true mainstream release after suffering years of development turmoil.

The film itself looks brilliant however, and sees Driver opposite the excellent Jonathan Pryce in this Terry Gilliam-directed comedy.  

And that’s our list. Which Adam Driver film is your favourite?
