Ethan Hawke’s Acting Career

Ethan Hawke landed his breakout role in “Dead Poets Society” in 1989 while he was still in college — though he never returned to complete his degree after that. Since then he’s gone on to star in a number of notable films including “Reality Bites” (1994), “Before Sunrise” (1995) — and its sequels “Before Sunset” (2004) and “Before Midnight” (2013) — and “Training Day” (2001).

Hawke received his first Oscar nomination for his acting in “Training Day,” and also received a nomination for 2014’s “Boyhood.” He also received a Golden Globe nomination for “Boyhood.”

Most recently, Hawke created, wrote and starred in the TV miniseries “The Good Lord Bird,” which earned him his second Golden Globe nomination.

Hawke has been known to choose jobs that don’t necessarily come with a big paycheck. When he starred in 2013’s “The Purge,” he worked for “next to nothing,” The Hollywood Reporter reported. Fortunately, he made up for his low initial payday thanks to a backend deal that ended up being worth about $2 million, Forbes reported.
