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

Rose Byrne and Ethan Hawke star in the off-beat, romantic comedy Juliet, Naked, based on the novel by best-selling author Nick Hornby. It is the story of Annie (Byrne), the long-suffering girlfriend of Duncan (Chris O’Dowd), who develops an unlikely transatlantic romance with the once-admired, now washed-up singer-songwriter Tucker Crowe (Hawke), who also happens to be the subject of Duncan’s musical obsession.

I had actually completely forgotten about Joe Dante’s EXPLORERS until just this moment, but it all came flooding back immediately. The 1985 coming-of-age sci-fi film starred Ethan Hawke, River Phoenix, and Jason Presson as three young teenagers who came together to build a spaceship after one of them had recurring dreams about a blueprint of some kind. The film eventually gathered a cult following but was considered a box-office flop as Paramount Pictures forced Dante to finish the film before he was ready. Read More here

If we’re a generation past the point of finding Nick-Hornby-style nerd behaviour lovable or endearing, let’s just say we have a lot in common with Annie (Rose Byrne), the main character in Juliet, Naked, who finds herself essentially stuck in a Nick Hornby romcom – it’s derived from his 2009 novel, in fact – with no easy escape.
