Ethan Hawke 

Um dos meus actores preferidos faz hoje anos (35) - também sou fã dos seus dois livros, editados em Portugal pela Difel, O Estado Mais Quente e Quarta-feira de Cinzas. Ethan Hawke. Ele tem sido actor, encenador (tem um companhia de teatro com o amigo Robert Sean Leonard), autor, argumentista, realizador e até músico... Uma das curiosidades que fui descobrindo em relação a Ethan Hawke é a frequência com que ele se chama, Jesse ou Jack (ou Jake), nos fimes que faz, é impressionante!! A personagem principal dos seus dois livros, também se chama Jesse...
Outra das peculiaridades nele são os poucos projectos em que alinha. Participa em filmes bons, e não tem problemas em participar em filmes totalmente independentes e até alternativos, como por exemplo, Tape, realizado por Richard Linklater - um grande filme! Saiu do anonimato e surgiu como "estrela" desde que a imprensa cor de rosa o associou a Julia Roberts, por terem dançado uma noite numa festa de actores... Mas antes disso já era um dos actores mais bem cotados pelos amantes de cinema... já tinha feito o inesquecível Clube dos Poetas Mortos.
