    Early life

    Driver was born in San Diego, California, and moved to the town of Mishawaka, Indiana, where he was raised, when he was seven years old. His mother, Nancy (Needham) Wright, is a paralegal, and his father, Joe Driver, is a preacher. His father's family is from Arkansas and his mother's family is from Indiana. His stepfather is a Baptist minister; his stepmother works for the Arkansas State Library in Little Rock; Driver had a religious upbringing, and sang in choir at church. He attended Mishawaka High School, where he graduated in 2001. He appeared in several high school plays and was an accomplished singer in the school's choir.

    Shortly after the events of 9/11, Driver joined the United States Marine Corps. He served for two years and eight months before suffering an injury during a training exercise, and was medically discharged before he could deploy to Iraq. After leaving the Marines, he attended the University of Indianapolis for a year before transferring to the Juilliard School to study drama.

    Career

    Following his graduation from Juilliard in 2009, Driver began acting in New York City, appearing in both Broadway and off-Broadway productions, while occasionally working as a busboy and waiter. On November 21, 2013, Driver was announced to be joining the cast of Jeff Nichols' Midnight Special. On January 13, 2014, Driver was added to the cast of Martin Scorsese's film, Silence.

    In late February 2014, Variety reported that Driver would play a villain in the 2015 film Star Wars Episode VII. On April 29, 2014, he was confirmed as a cast member.

    Personal life

    Driver married his longtime girlfriend, Joanne Tucker, on June 22, 2013. He runs a non-profit organization, Arts in the Armed Forces, which stages performances for military personnel. He considers John Cassavetes to be the model for the type of creative life he would like to emulate.
