The first trailer for a film adaptation of Shakespeare’s Cymbeline, starring Ethan Hawke and Dakota Johnson, has arrived and it claims the play is Shakespeare’s “undiscovered masterpiece”. Though the date of its writing is unknown, a performance of Cymbeline was noted in 1611, and in every century since then it has been reprinted, staged, adapted, and analyzed. Full Story

F-ck. Can we rage first about her bullsh-t taste in clothing? This dress is SO old. And SO ugly. And SO … It’s the WORST. Because it’s so obvious. So obvious that she’s all about invoking the Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe Old Hollywood vibe. You know why that worked for them? Because it was 50 years ago. Full Story

Safe to say now that Boyhood is the clear Best Picture frontrunner for the Oscars now, right? The Globes don’t necessarily accurately predict Oscars. But they certainly can influence Academy members to pay more attention to the films and actors that they honour. So Ethan Hawke is most definitely going to the Oscars. Full Story

Today was Ethan Hawke’s hand and footprint ceremony in Hollywood. This is considered a lot more prestigious now than getting a star on the Walk Of Fame. It seems like now you can just buy a star on the Walk Of Fame. It’s been a great couple of years for Ethan. Before Midnight earned him an Oscar nomination. Full Story
Oh hey look at that, it’s turned into a Great Expectations day. Ethan Hawke is in London. Here he is at ITV studios earlier and then tonight he was featured at BAFTA A Life In Pictures: Ethan Hawke. This is new hair. Two weeks ago it was longer. So will this be his award season hair? You’ll see a lot of him. Full Story

The reports came out over two months ago: Joaquin Phoenix negotiating to play Marvel’s Dr Strange. And from very legitimate sources. But all this time has passed and still no confirmation. Everyone agreed it would be good casting. A lot of people were also surprised that he’d taken on such a big budget, big hype project. Full Story
Ethan Hawke was on my list for TIFF. It’s a Reality Bites thing. I had to see him. Last night was the premiere of Good Kill. After the screening, Ethan, Jake Abel, and director Andrew Niccol were at Storys for the afterparty. The suit was shiny in person but in pictures, that’s extra. Ethan was chatty. Full Story

Is Ethan Hawke your re-boyfriend yet? If you say no, is it because you haven’t seen Boyhood? See it. Then be the contrarian. I know the type. The film has received near universal acclaim, currently sitting at a 99% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. But some people just get ruined by hype. Full Story
I really, really want to see Boyhood this weekend. Duana and Lara went the other night and yesterday sent an email to a few of our friends with the title “ALERT”:
“Boyhood made me love Ethan Hawke again. Use at your own risk.”
That is a risk. Because I’d been going off Troy Dyer for a while. And then… Before Midnight. Also, there was a Before Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight marathon on TV recently. That didn’t help either.
Experiment: Can Richard Linklater’s Ethan Hawke stand up after a viewing of Billy Idol’s Ethan Hawke? This is what I’ll do as soon as I leave the theatre after Boyhood. Pull up a shot of Billy Ethan Hawke on my phone as a fickle test.
Trying to decide whether or not I should blind you again today and make it a 3-blind week. It’s Friday and so many people are taking off early. Hold to next week or do now? Tell me.
Have a great weekend!

Not really into men with bobs. Orlando Bloom is wearing his hair bobbed. And when he has to wear the bob fancy, he gets it all gel wet and pushes it back. Doesn’t work for me. He hasn’t worked for me in a long, long time. I’m not actually sure he really works for anyone. The reason why they think he still works is because they see him from memory. Full Story
If you’ve been reading this blog long enough, you know how a few of us here feel about Reality Bites – ok maybe just Duana and me. This is the origin of our love-hate for Ethan Hawke. And our enduring love for loafers with anything. If you clicked on the title of this post because you know the name, I don’t need to explain much more to you. Full Story

Aaron Paul has been hyping the sh-t out of Breaking Bad (and did you see the first episode? Wouldn't you?!) and if you follow him on Twitter, you'll notice he does a lot of charity work, particularly in support of his wife's non-profit, Kind Campaign. This week he participated in a two hour Reddit AMA (isn't that forever by internet standards?) and I tried to follow along live but it was too confusing, so I just read through the question and answer bits (not the threads of comments, it's just too much).
