Ethan Hawke Joins Indie Drama 'A Late Quartet' As A Violinist

Ethan Hawke's been an Interpol agent, a philosophizing dream-walker, a vampire with a conscience, a good-guy cop, a bad-guy cop and all sorts of other things in his career. Violinist is a new one though.

Variety reports that Hawke has joined the cast of director Yaron Zilberman's "A Late Quartet." He'll star as a depressed second violinist who feels he doesn't spend enough time in the spotlight. Some marital infidelity ensues and Hawke's character is left feeling miserable as a result of his actions. Serves him right. After that, the actor will be returning to the theatrical stage for a pair of upcoming productions: "Blood From a Stone" and "The Numbers Station."
