With CBS' Training Day pilot moving forward, its inevitable Ethan Hawke, who played rookie cop Jake Hoyt in the original film, would be approached for a role.

Deadline reports that Hawke has been asked to reprise his role in some way—likely a supporting or recurring role, though some want Hawke to star in the series.

Hawke mentioned there's a chance he'll be involved. "You know, I'm not really sure what they want from me, or whether they're interested in having me," he said. "I'm pretty sure they are." However, Hawke has "no burning desire to be on a TV show," and certainly not "24 episodes a year."

It is the perfect time for director Antoine Fuqua to revisit the story, "with all that's happening in the news and Ferguson," Hawke said. "Antoine could develop a show that really speaks to our time about where the police are at in relationship with the community."

The Training Day TV series will be set 15 years after the events of the original film, and will again focus on a pair of cops. Training Day premiered in 2001 and starred Denzel Washington as a seasoned narcotics detective, while Hawke played his rookie partner.
