Woody Harrelson On Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jennifer Lawrence and Catching Fire
Woody Harrelson talked to BroadwayWorld.com about his play Bullet For Adolf which has both been written and directed by the actor. Among other things discussed was Woody’s career to date and his acting highlights along the way including the upcoming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire:
PC: Will you be attending the Emmys this weekend in support of GAME CHANGE and its multiple nominations, including yours for Best Actor In A Movie Made For TV?
WH: Well, I’d like to, but I’m supposed to be filming [THE HUNGER GAMES] in Atlanta all next week, so we’ll see how that goes…
PC: Last question: what have you experiences like been so far working with your new HUNGER GAMES cast-mate Philip Seymour Hoffman – who has also done this column, incidentally?
WH: Oh, well, I am leaving tomorrow to go to Atlanta to film the new HUNGER GAMES, but I can tell you that there definitely will be some stuff that we have together in the next film. And, I think he is just one of the greats, so I am really looking forward to working with him. [...] We’ve never worked together, I don’t think, but we’ve known each other for a while – and we’ve hung out a few times. He’s a real prince of a guy.
PC: Jennifer Lawrence is another co-star of yours who is poised to take Hollywood by storm.
WH: Oh, she’s so incredibly talented – yeah, she’s great. All of them are really great on THE HUNGER GAMES, so I am looking forward to getting back there to Atlanta.
PC: Does this look like it might be your career high next year with such hi-profile stage, small screen and big screen projects?
WH: [Laughs.] Well, you never know for sure about things like that, but I feel really great about how things are right now. Right now, I guess I feel like my main focus is still BULLET FOR ADOLF, but, soon, it will be all about CATCHING FIRE.
