Now he’s 48, but when he was much younger, Ethan Hawke read Cassavetes on Cassavetes, the indie filmmaker bible, and then went to hear the author’s widow, Gena Rowlands, speak. She looked out at the crowd and laughed. She said Cassavetes was always disappointed because nobody would finance his movies; he’d always felt dismissed and disregarded. “‘And now here you guys are making a big deal out of him’,” he remembered her saying. She said that was nice, but that they shouldn’t miss the point. “‘Make a big deal of yourself.’ You know? Whatever indifference the world gives you, he felt it, too. So you’re just as good as he is. Like, go out and do it.” Read More here

Ethan Hawke sometimes seems like the guy that wasn’t meant to be an actor but he slipped through the screening process and made it onto a set anyway. Take that as you will but in addition to this he got to stay by proving that he could act and that he could be worth the effort of giving a bit of fame to in order to get his career rolling. Since that time he’s played a lot of different roles, a good number of which have been individuals that have a rather interesting if tragic or dark past and are skilled in one way or another or simply get lucky when they need to. Some people haven’t been quite as convinced that he’s everything that others say he’s worth and more, but overall Hawke has matured into a fine actor and is able to hold his spot in any feature with a fair amount of ease. Here are some of the best movies of his career. Read More here
