He currently leads the Showtime miniseries The Good Lord Bird as the abolitionist John Brown, who led a slave revolt prior to the start of the civil war.
And Ethan Hawke had retained some of his rugged style from the miniseries on Sunday as he and his wife Ryan Shawhughes took their dog for a walk in New York City.
The 50-year-old actor looked casual yet cool in a green military-style jacket while showing off a thick goatee left over from his on-screen beard.

Ethan stayed on the same color scheme with a pair of dark green pants, and he also had on a set of weathered blue sneakers.
He wore a red bandana-style mask to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, though he temporarily removed it while keeping plenty of distance from other pedestrians.
In addition to his salt-and-pepper goatee, he had his shaggy gray hair swept back.
Ryan had on a more muted look with a fuzzy black fleece jacket and navy blue jeans with checker print slip-on sneakers.
