Oscar Isaac hasn't got the moves

Oscar Isaac doesn't have a clue where to start with dancing unless he has a teacher.

The 35-year-old actor performs a drunken routine in his movie Ex Machina, which is about artificial intelligence. It's a light-hearted moment in an otherwise pretty dark flick, and one Oscar had to put a lot of time and effort into.

"If you get me a choreographer for a couple of weeks, I’ll bang out a real good dance for ya - but on my own, maybe not so much," he laughed to ETonline.

Oscar is riding a career high at the moment. He was lauded for his role in A Most Violent Year alongside Jessica Chastain and has also been cast in the new Star Wars movies.

The star is thrilled to be joining the sci-fi franchise and doesn't feel nervous at all, although making sure he doesn't give anything away about the plot has been a tall order.

He's been loath to answer questions for fear of releasing a massive spoiler, although this time around he was happy to chat about some secrets - namely his character Poe Dameron's facial hair.

Oscar has sported many different beard and moustache combinations on screen, explaining he's proud to be one of those people who can totally transform themselves.

"I can’t even say," he replied, when asked if Poe remains clean shaven throughout. "Maybe a beard suddenly appears - maybe thousands of years go by, I don’t know. Maybe there’s flashbacks, who knows? Maybe I play my own dad. You never know! [Laughs] There are so many questions. Maybe I’m playing twins. I could be twins - one with a beard or just a moustache or some alien hair, like I’m an alien of some sort."
