Popsugar interviews Isaac about getting ready for his role as Abel in the film A Most Violent Year.
Everything was about presentation. Everything is a strategy for the goal. I remember I was just trying to figure out the character; I was like, “J.C., what’s he thinking here?” and he would say, “I don’t know, but his hair is going to be amazing!” And I was like, “Yeah, but what does he want?” and he was like, “I don’t know, but his suits are going to be so nice!” Finally he said, “Look, his suits have nothing to do with vanity. His suits are suits of armor.” Everything is about presentation, what is showing.
