It has been more than 25 years since a young Ethan Hawke stepped on his desk to salute his teacher, portrayed by Robin Williams, in "Dead Poets Society".Hawke, 43, has taken on some 50 roles since and this year received his third Oscar nod for best adapted screenplay for "Before Midnight," shared with Richard Linklater and Julie Delpy.His 12-year "Boyhood" project with Linklater has won critical praise, while his documentary on classical pianist Seymour Bernstein has also been warmly received at recent film festivals.You don't need an education to love that music.A: A lot of young people -- talented people -- will come at it with this huge emotion and it's wonderful, but it's completely out of control.Q: You played Todd Anderson in "Dead Poets Society" opposite Robin Williams.
