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 Wright, is a paralegal, and his father, Joe Driver, is a preacher.
A few months after the events of 9/11, Driver joined the United States Marine Corps. He served for two years and eight months before being deployed to Iraq. He injured his sternum in a biking accident, then further injured himself during a training exercise, and was medically discharged. After leaving the Marines, he attended the University of Indianapolis for a year before transferring to the Juilliard School to study drama. He now runs a non-profit organization, Arts in the Armed Forces, which stages performances for military personnel.
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. Notable productions Driver had roles in include Angels In America and Look Back in Anger.
In 2012, Driver was cast in the HBO comedy-drama series Girls, as the emotionally unstable Adam Sackler, the boyfriend of the lead character Hannah Horvath. During the show's run, he received three nominations for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his role. The same year, Driver played supporting roles in two critically acclaimed films, as telegraph and cipher officer Samuel Beckwith in Steven Spielberg's historical drama Lincoln, and Lev Shapiro in Noah Baumbach's comedy-drama Frances Ha.
