The awesome Oscar-nominated American actor and activist - best known for leading roles in wildly disparate films such as Natural Born Killers, Zombieland and The People vs. Larry Flynt - is set to helm a local production of Bullet for Adolf, playing Hart House Theatre April 21 through May 7.
Harrelson wrote and directed the play, a comedy which chronicles his and co-creator Frankie Hyman’s experiences working in construction during the summer of 1983 in Houston. It tackles race, gender and sexuality. Tickets and info are available here.
Meantime, Harrelson sits down with TIFF Head of Film Programmes Jesse Wente this Thursday (April 7) for an In Conversation With… session spotlighting his varied career. The chat begins at 7 pm at TIFF Bell Lightbox and given Harrelson’s highly engaging and very funny nature, it sounds like appointment viewing. Tickets here.
Meantime, here is some Harrelson trivia to chew on:
He is a vegan and raw food devotee.
Claims to have had 17 jobs in one year.
Chosen by People magazine as one of the 50 Most Beautiful People. 
Activist for the legalization of marijuana.
He lives in Hawaii.
