His other film credits include While We're Young, This Is Where I Leave You, Tracks, Inside Llewyn Davis, Lincoln, Frances Ha, and J. Edgar.
Driver also starred on HBO's critically acclaimed series "Girls." His performance in "Girls" garnered him three Emmy nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. His Broadway credits include Man and Boy (dir. Maria Aitken) opposite Frank Langella, as well as Mrs. Warren's Profession (dir. Doug Hughes) opposite Cherry Jones. Off-Broadway, he starred in John Osborne's Look Back in Anger (dir. Sam Gold), which earned him the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Featured Actor.

In 2008, Driver founded Arts in the Armed Forces, a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing live stage performance to active duty and veteran members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. Driver is a Juilliard graduate and is a former Marine who was with 1/1 Weapons Company at Camp Pendleton, CA.
