#696: Ethan Hawke Interview / Top 5 Hawke Moments
With the critical reappraisal of Ethan Hawke in full swing after a career-best performance in Paul Schrader's "First Reformed," Adam and Josh commemorate "The Hawkessance" with a consideration of the actor's long and varied career, from Todd Anderson's "sweaty-toothed madman" to Rev. Toller's existential despair (and all those Sunrises and Sunsets in between). Joining Adam and Josh for the Top 5 Ethan Hawke Moments is Keith Phipps, Next Picture Show co-host and author of his own recent reconsideration of Hawke. Plus, Adam's interview with Hawke, who talks about BLAZE, his new biopic about Texas singer-singwriter Blaze Foley, and also about the importance of letting your kids make their own mistakes.
