Oscar Isaac and Pedro Pascal May Be Our Favorite Famous Best Friends

Pedro Pascal and Oscar Isaac's friendship goes way back: the duo met before they were famous, when they appeared in an off-Broadway play together in 2005. The pair later worked together on 2019's "Triple Frontier," and eventually Pascal joined Isaac in the Star Wars universe. (Pascal stars in "The Mandalorian," while Isaac played Poe Dameron in the Star Wars sequel trilogy.)

"We have very similar backgrounds," Pascal told Esquire about their bond. "We're both children of Latin immigrants, so there's sort of a cultural familiarity, then at the same time we're both actors. We have the same dreams. It's something very special because it can be a lonely journey when you're out there going after - it sounds corny, but going after your dreams, and to find family along the way." Pascal joked, "The other side of it is that he's the younger brother I never wanted."

For his part, when asked about Pascal, Isaac was a bit meaner. He told Esquire, "He's obsessed with me. I try to get away from him, he finds me. Even when I change my number . . . it's like a disease."

The two also got into a bit of an argument recently about their Marvel and Star Wars characters. Isaac told Remezcla that if his character, Moon Knight, faced off against Pascal's Mandalorian, Marc Spector would definitely come out on top. "Moon Knight would definitely win, and who cares if Pedro agrees because it's fact," Isaac said. "You can't argue facts." Pascal, of course, didn't agree. "That's so sweet," he told the outlet. "Maybe Moon Knight would beat The Mandalorian at Scrabble, but not a fight."
