Actor Woody Harrelson has had an unpredictable, brilliantly bipolar career and led an inspiring, unconventional life off the silver screen. He's managed to transform himself from clown to contender, nabbing himself two Oscar nominations along the way ('The Messenger' and 'The People vs. Larry Flynt').
Behind the scenes, Woody transcended his devout Presbyterian upbringing, got himself on Broadway, moved to Hollywood to play Woody Boyd in 'Cheers', and then surprised everyone by becoming one of the most versatile and bold actors around. Well-loved for his comedic roles in films like 'White Men Can't Jump' or 'Zombieland', Woody has also given us memorable performances in two of the darkest, most violent and critically acclaimed movies of the last few decades - Oliver Stone's 'Natural Born Killers' and the Coen brothers' 'No Country for Old Men'.
In a world where celebrities dabble with a new "cause" every week, Woody's longtime commitment to environmental issues has brought him new fans. Now, our favorite vegan anti-establishment sh**-disturber is taking on a new challenge: he's directing a play (that he co-wrote with an old friend), 'Bullet for Adolph'. It runs from April 19-May 7 at the Hart House Theater in Toronto.
At the moment, Woody is shooting the much-anticipated adaptation of the young adult novel "The Hunger Games," and his new film "Bunraku," co-starring Josh Hartnett, is playing at TIFF.
