Video Interview: Ethan Hawke on "Born to Be Blue"

Canadian director Robert Budreau's "Born To Be Blue" is an innovative look at the musician's troubled life, turning the traditional bio pic into a medley of fact and fiction. Ethan Hawke may seem like an unusual choice to play the role of Baker, but he's riveting as he captures the essence of Baker. In this video interview, Hawke tells film journalist Katherine Tulich what drew him to the role.
