I have to hand it to ILM… They did a fantastic job of taking out Adam Driver’s Oceanside-born moto tattoos in post production. How do I know Adam Driver has moto tats? Because of course he does. I would put money on it.
For those of you that don’t know, Kylo Ren was an 0341 with 1st Bn, 1st Mar for 2 years before being medically discharged. It’s no wonder he’s been naturally drawn to the dark side of the force, as most Marines I know tend to be more sympathetic to the Empire than to the Rebel Alliance. There’s something about being part of an organized, authoritarian military that makes the average Lance Corporal feel more closely akin to a Storm Trooper than Luke Skywalker.
I have plenty of feelings about The Last Jedi, not all of which are good. However, I will say that Adam Driver is by far my favorite part of the new trilogy. I actually first discovered his acting with the show Girls (the girl I was dating at the time was super into it
and I was pretty into Allison Williams), and I thought he was amazing then as well. It wasn’t until after The Force Awakens came out that I found out he was a Marine. He actually is a great dude and does a lot for veterans and the arts, so you should definitely buy give him sex a beer if you see him.
