Ethan Hawke has a taste for the macabre. More specifically: “Macbeth.”
The actor will star as the king of Scotland in the Shakespeare tragedy at Lincoln Center this winter. Jack O'Brien, whom Hawke worked with on 2006/2007’s "The Coast of Utopia" -- a role that earned him a Tony nomination -- will direct. The two also worked together on the 2003-04 Broadway staging of "Henry IV."
“Macbeth,” however, has long been on Hawke’s wish list. “It’s a part I’ve always wanted to play,” he said on the PBS series “Shakespeare Uncovered.”
