You'd better start getting used to seeing Adam Driver's face. At least as much as that's possible. After a string of small parts with hugely in-demand directors, the Girls star is continuing on his hot streak with a role for Martin Scorsese, the rabid Girls fan who really feels the show speaks to his generation (probably). According to Showbiz411, Driver has been offered a part alongside Andrew Garfield and Ken Watanabe in Scorsese's Silence, a Japanese thriller about an undercover priest in the 17th century.

He's also been rumored for parts in such high-profile films as the Man of Steel sequel and Star Wars: Episode VII. In other words: sorry, Sam Worthington, but your time is over.
