"Something I learned in the Marine Corps that I've applied to acting is, one, taking direction, and then working with a group of people to accomplish a mission and knowing your role within that team."

Adam Douglas Driver (born November 19, 1983 in San Diego, California) is an American actor.

He served in the United States Marine Corps before being medically discharged after an injury that prevented him from going to Iraq, after which he studied acting at Juilliard. He first gained prominence as Adam Sackler on the HBO series Girls, for which he received three Emmy nominations.
