Austin native Ethan Hawke appeared on “Charlie Rose” last week to talk about “Boyhood,” the Richard Linklater film that has scored him a Best Supporting Actor nomination at this year’s Oscars. In the clip below, Hawke discusses how the director approached him to undertake the daunting, multi-year film shoot, comparing it to Russian literature.
“Boyhood” is nominated for nine Oscars at this year’s Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Hawke, who was nominated for his supporting role at the 21st Screen Actors Guild Awards but did not win, also spoke about the filming process on the red carpet of that ceremony. His co-star, Ellar Coltrane, called Hawke his “best friend” at the event.
