Sure, it may have stung a little more when Gabriel Byrne left the neighborhood but we’re sure millennials in the nabe are just a little sadder today as work comes that “Girls” star Adam Driver is bugging out of Brooklyn Heights:
New York Post: “Adam Driver is too big for the Heights!” sniffed a local, who saw moving vans arrive at the address where he lives with his wife, Joanne Tucker.
The busy actor will be spending a lot of time out of town after also being cast in Martin Scorsese’s “Silence” with Liam Neeson and Andrew Garfield, as well as films by Noah Baumbach and Shawn Levy.
Driver had been living blocks from “Girls” creator Lena Dunham — whose character was, ironically, leaving him behind in Brooklyn in the show’s recent season finale.
Driver will also play a villain in JJ Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars movie.
