The hunky LGBTQ+ ally has done drag before.

The audience at a panel during this weekend's New York Comic Con got the impression that Oscar Isaac desires a date with RuPaul. That's at least what was conveyed when the actor replied to a fan's question regarding his admiration for the legendary drag queen at the panel.

According to Decider, a fan dressed in Maleficent drag had inquired to Isaac about the fact that he loves RuPaul's Drag Race so much.

They were the last fan who was able to ask the Moon Knight actor a question, so they approached the mic and stated their important query.

"I don't know another actor with as much charisma, uniqueness, or talent," the Maleficent-clad fan began. "I know you're a huge fan of RuPaul's Drag Race. Would you ever grace the stage of Drag Race as a judge or maybe a contestant?"

Isaac, beaming, responded, "Yes, and yes!"

Then the actor asked, "World of Wonder? RuPaul? Are you listening?"

World of Wonder is the production company that produces the show.

As evidence of his immense appreciation for Drag Race, he turned up at a Brooklyn gay bar last spring to watch the season 14 finale of the show together with a gaggle of gays.

"Oscar Isaac attended a viewing party for the season finale of Rupaul's Drag Race at a gay bar in Brooklyn in April," tweeted @FilmUpdates in April.

And lest one think he needs to develop a drag persona, Isaac already has covered that part of his drag journey.

In response to a question about what name he would choose as a drag persona, Isaac told the panel he already had one and that it was a family affair.

"I was doing drag at a very early age, and my sister named me Raisin," Isaac said." So I feel like I have to stick with Raisin. Raisin was -- is my name. It's one of my names."
