As a lead actor it was White Fang (1991) which was followed by “Before Sunrise’ where Hawke again received critical acclaim, this time for his performance in Richard Linklater’s 1995 drama.

In Training Day (2001) which was a blockbuster hit, Hawke played a rookie cop Jake Hoyt, alongside Denzel Washington, as one of a pair of narcotics detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department spending 24 hours in the gang neighborhoods of South Los Angeles.

Hawke’s landmark performance was while working with the Spierig brothers on the science fiction thriller Predestination, in which he plays a time-traveling agent on his final assignment.

His upcoming films are ‘Maudie’ which is expected to release soon and then the 2017 release ‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets’.
