Ethan Hawke Decides ‘Screw It, I’ll Do TV’

Monday, December 13 by

Ethan Hawke is in talks to slum it on Fox with the procedural drama Exit Strategy. The project is backed by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and David Guggenheim and expected to go to pilot if Hawke signs on. The high octane successor to 24“ will star Hawke as the leader of an elite team that helps retrieve CIA agents from missions gone awry. And, like “24,” the project is also presented in real time.

What do you think of this move to TV by Hawke? His film career still seems to have steam left in it, and he’s found success on the stage. Does this spring from a need to keep working, or is it all part of his gradual metamorphosis into Chris O’Donnell? (Deadline)

    Hm, interesting move by Hawke, I always liked his cop movies. I think he can still be successful in his movies. I can see him playing a guy like Jason Bourne, in his own series. I think you get paid more if you do TV though.
