My brother reports that he just saw a preview of the all-star Henry IV: Parts I and II premiering this month in New York, featuring an anemic Ethan Hawke as Hotspur and, as Falstaff, Kevin Kline in a big fat suit. This may give Kevin Kline the distinction of being the only modern actor to have convincingly played both Falstaff and Hamlet, which is no mean feat.
