Ethan Hawke

Ethan Hawke posted a rare photo of himself in his full "Old John Brown" beard and costume from "The Good Lord Bird" on Instagram yesterday, in honor of the 160th anniversary of the raid on Harpers Ferry.

Hawke and the Showtime crew have been filming "The Good Lord Bird" in Virginia since July.

In the post, Hawke talks about filming in Virginia and credits the prop department for bringing the 19th-century abolitionist John Brown's world back to life.

"It's the best role I've ever had, bar none," the actor said in the post.
