Occupation: Knight of Ren?![edit]

Pretty sure that box is meant to have REAL LIFE information and not his role?

Started![edit]

But it needs work, filling in his credits. You should be able to find everything you need via the links in the article. Good luck, and thanks! zerodark | talk 07:49, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

What?[edit]

Who is this fool anyway? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 116.236.131.146 (talk) 14:11, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

Adam Driver is a huge talent! This is poorly written and does not represent him well. Needs serious editing. Mya Ramos-Jones (talk) 06:00, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

Military service overemphasized[edit]

This subject meets notability criteria for his acting career alone. Many notable actors did stints in the military, and even longer and more distinguished than Driver's two years that ended ten years ago (Jimmy Stewart, a colonel in the USAF after active service in WW2, eg), yet their service is not displayed so prominently in their info box, and none state "Allegiance: United States Constitution". Driver's infobox is not in accord with Wikioedia conventions and is not encyclopedic; it will have to be reworked. Mmyers1976 (talk) 11:48, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

The "Allegiance: United States Constitution" part was the result of vandalism. It probably should have been fixed rather than removed entirely. W00d (talk) 10:23, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
Mr. T, Elvis Presley, Alan Alda, MC Hammer, Steve McQueen, Bill Cosby, Chuck Norris, Tony Bennett, James Earl Jones, all entertainers who served in the military at one point, whose military service is roughly the same length as Driver's, none have the military service in the infobox. The only times I have seen military service in the infobox for someone who is well known as an actor are 1. if their military service is strongly linked to their acting career (eg. Dale Dye and R. Lee Ermy), 2. if they had distinguished service in combat during a war, and/or 3. if they had a long and distinguished career in the military (eg. the aforementioned example of Jimmy Stewart), none of which applies to Driver. An infobox has a specific purpose, according to the manual of style: "When considering any aspect of infobox design, keep in mind the purpose of an infobox: to summarize key facts that appear in the article. The less information it contains, the more effectively it serves that purpose, allowing readers to identify key facts at a glance"). Removal was quite appropriate.
