Ethan Hawke certainly has proved his versatility, going from playing the terrorized partner of Denzel Washington's rogue cop in 2001's Training Day to revisiting the sensitive, earnest young man he played in 1995's Before Sunrise in last year's Before Sunset. So, what's his secret? Life experience. "Well, if you're in the arts, as corny as it sounds, your life is the stuff from which you work with," said Hawke, who is back in a police uniform for his new movie, Assault on Precinct 13. "That's why it's important to read a lot. I mean, it's important to learn a lot. It's important to live a lot. My children affect me. Friends of mine say that, like, after Training Day, there was some kind of change in my work, and I chalk a lot of that up to simply development. It was my daughter and turning 30. All of these things affect you."

Susan Sarandon was among 219 people arrested at New York police headquarters Thursday -- the 13th day of civil disobedience protests over the police shooting of unarmed African immigrant Amadou Diallo. "If we're not here today, then we're saying that what happened is acceptable and normal, and I think that does a disservice to the other police," said the Oscar-winning actress. "I think it's time we focus on this issue, and racial profiling is not acceptable. I don't think we want to be made safe at the expense of our civil liberties."
