'Macbeth' star Ethan Hawke spreads Christmas cheer on 'Today.'

Ethan Hawke is having a very interesting holiday season: he stalks around the Vivian Beaumont Theatre slaying adversaries as the titular king in Lincoln Center Theater's revival of Macbeth at night and he goes toy shopping as a regular father of four by day. On December 20, the Tony and Oscar nominee stopped by The Today Show and dished about why the Scottish general is a physically demanding role. "Shakespeare writes all of these really long plays that end with you having to recite all of these lines and then have a sword fight," he joked. Hawke also discussed why he doesn't play dead very well, what his favorite Christmas movie is and why you might see him at FAO Schwarz at 2:00AM. Watch the clip below and go see Hawke in Macbeth!
