ETHAN HAWKE (Jess Newton) recently starred in Andrew Niccol's "Gattaca" opposite Uma Thurman, and in "Great Expectations" with Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert De Niro; the latter released by Twentieth Century Fox. He next stars in the upcoming drama "Snow Falling On Cedars."

He made his feature film debut at age 14 in "Explorers," before landing the role of 'Todd Anderson' in the Academy Award­winning "Dead Poets Society."

Hawke played leading man to Winona Ryder in "Reality Bites" and to Julie Delpyin the critically acclaimed "Before Sunrise."

Hawke was born in Austin, Texas and then settled in Princeton, New Jersey, where he began studying acting. It was through Princeton's prestigious McCarter Theater that he began taking acting classes and eventually landed his first professional job in the theater's performance of "St. Joan."

During high school, Hawke performed in a number of stage productions including the role of 'Romeo' in "Romeo and Juliet," and as 'Tom' in "The Glass Menagerie." He studied theater in England with the British Theater Association, and at the Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. He also performed in the play "The Seagull" at the National Actors Theater and Jonathan Marc Sherman's "Sophistry." Hawke continues to be Artistic Director of the theater group Malaparte, of which he is a founding member.
