Woody Harrelson Talks 'Catching Fire' and 'Seven Psychopaths'

11 October 2012 3:41 PM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

After replacing the dearly departed character of Coach on Cheers in the '90s, Woody Harrelson proved he could do it all—comedy, drama (Natural Born Killers, The People vs. Larry Flynt)-- although Kingpin may be his masterpiece. More recently he was nominated for an Oscar for his role in The Messenger and played a corrupt cop in Rampart. And then there was that little movie The Hunger Games…. In Seven Psychopaths (opening wide Oct. 12), directed by Martin McDonagh (In Bruges), Harrelson plays Charlie, a killer with a soft spot for his dog Bonnie. When some bumbling dognappers (Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken) take Bonnie, Charlie comes after them, and a struggling screenwriter (Colin Farrell) uses it as inspiration. We got to chat with Harrelson when Seven...

Six Degrees of Separation With .. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lindsay Lohan

5 October 2012 9:46 AM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger's bombastic "60 Minutes" interview and Lindsay Lohan's disastrous nightclub episode catapulted these two celebrities into high trend alert at the start of the week. But are they connected otherwise? Here, we put the Kevin Bacon theory to the test to see just how closely Schwarzenegger, 65, and Lohan, 26, relate in Hollywood.

Who: Arnold Schwarzegger, Lindsay Lohan

Arnold Schwarzenegger acted in "The Expendables 2" (2012) with Bruce Willis,

who acted in "Moonrise Kingdom" (2012) with Edward Norton,

who acted in "The People vs. Larry Flynt" (1996) with Woody Harrelson,

who acted in "A Prarie Home Companion" (2006) with Lindsay Lohan!

Ding ding ding!

Does the Kevin Bacon Theory hold? Yes

Degrees of Separation: 4

For the record, Schwarzengger and Lohan each have an actual Bacon Number (the relation to Kevin Bacon) of two, according to Google's playful new Easter egg.

Have a quicker connection between these two? Sound off in the comments below, and »

Dialogue: 'Psychopath' Woody Harrelson Plays Tricks on Us at Toronto (Exclusive)

13 September 2012 3:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The actor tells us his plans to return to comedy, why dark laughter is better than light, and demonstrates his newfound magic skills -- well, sort of. Woody Harrelson has been one of our favorite actors since the ‘90s. After he joined the cast of Cheers, replacing the dearly departed character of Coach, he did some intense dramatic work in Natural Born Killers and The People vs. Larry Flynt, although the bowling comedy Kingpin may be his masterpiece. Harrelson has been doing well lately too. He was nominated for an Oscar for his role in The Messenger and won an Independent Spirit Award for it. He also played a corrupt cop in Rampart and the McCain/Palin campaign manager in Game Change. And then, of course, there's that little movie Hunger Games. In Seven Psychopaths...

Still, he helps the contestants out with their interviews, »

A Play About Woody Harrelson's First Black Friend

18 July 2012 7:17 AM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

New York -- In the summer of 1983, The Police were on top of the charts with "Every Breath You Take," James Bond was sipping martinis in "Octopussy" and Woody Harrelson was meeting a man who would change his life.

Harrelson, the then-22-year-old soon-to-be a star of the TV series "Cheers," was working construction in Houston when he met Frankie Hyman, an older New Yorker with a bunch of funny stories. The two became roommates, spent hours talking, debating and bonding over beers and reefer.

"He just helped open my eyes to a lot of things," says Harrelson. "He'd seen a lot of the world. I always felt like he was one of the wisest people I'd ever met and I still do. He really had a huge impact on me."

That sweltering summer saw both men woo girlfriends and meet a lot of interesting characters. Hyman was the second »
