Agent Hawkins was a Homeland Security Agent. He appears in 2016 movie.


Agent Hawkins along with Agent Rorke came to the scene after Martin Heiss was thrown through the window by Mayhem thanks to Erin releasing the ghost from the ghost trap. The agents took the four Ghostbusters to the Mayor's office. Jennifer Lynch confirmed that both agents work for Homeland Security, and that they had been monitoring the Ghostbuster's activities. It was noted the agents are in charge of dealing with the ghost problem. After the meeting with the Mayor, Hawkins and Rorke brought the Ghostbusters back to their headquarters in chinatown. Hawkins hands them a card and then goes to the SUV while Rorke tells the Ghostbusters to stay off their turf. Hawkins drove away with Rorke in the SUV even though Rorke was still taunting the Ghostbusters.

Later Hawkins and Rorke show up at The Mercado Hotel and escort the Ghostbusters out while Jennifer tells the press that the events there were a stunt by the Ghostbusters.

Hawkins and Rorke later return to The Mercado, joined by Police Officers Officer Jensen and Officer Stevenson along with the police, SWAT, and the National Guard. Rowan comes down and then makes them dance to a song, then stand frozen in place. After the events of Rowan and all the ghosts being sucked back in the portal, Hawkins along with everyone else outside were able to move and go on like they had before Rowan had froze them.

We made this... this thing is as big as a tank - it comes and when it shoots the building, it actually powers up the building even more and shoots back blowing the thing up. We had Michael actually when he does the line like, "Alright, on the count of 1...2...5, fire!"."
