Ethan Hawke Reveals the Surprising Way Oscar Isaac Recruited Him for Marvel's 'Moon Knight'

“I heard about it from Oscar Isaac, who lives like three blocks down the street from me in Brooklyn,” Ethan said.

“I was at a coffee shop, he came up to me. He’s like, ‘Hey, I really liked The Good Lord Bird.’ I was like, ‘Oh, cool, I really like your work. You’re amazing.’ He’s like, ‘Hey, want to be in the Moon Knight with me?’ I was like… yeah! So, it happened the right way.”

Ethan shared that he was currently in Budapest working on the series and added that it’s different from any project he’s taken on so far because he’s “had to sign like 10,000 NDAs about what I would and would not say.”

He added that the Moon Knight sets are “mind-boggling,” out of “some alternate universe… We’re conjuring ancient gods and we’re fighting for good and evil. It’s very exciting.”

Oscar Isaac recently shared a post about the new series on social media. Check it out!
