Harrelson goes 2012

07.14.2008

Woody Harrelson has revealed to MTV that he has taken a starring role in the upcoming Roland Emmerich epic 2012. He also goes on to describe the character he's playing, but don't worry if you don't have time to read it, he's basically playing the exact same white male lead that is in every one of Emmerich's films:

“I don’t know why they thought of me... But I like the idea... I play a guy who’s been talking for a long time, the whole world thinks he’s crazy... But he’s been talking that there’s gonna be hell to pay for what’s been going on ecologically and everything.”

I swear to God, every single one of Emmerich's films could have been alternatively titled "I TOLD YOU SO, MR. PRESIDENT". Unless for the first time ever, the guy spouting doomsday notions will be found wrong and to be just your garden variety lunatic. And if that is the case then yeah, Harrelson was definitely the man for the job. He weirds me out. I wouldn't leave that guy to take care of the fake pets my cousins play tea-party with.

2012 also stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, John Cusack, Amanda Peet and Thandie Newton. The film is about the Mayan calender's ending in 2012 and the natural disasters that accompany it. Or something. I don't know. I just watch this things because I hope Will Smith will pop out somewhere and welcome something to Earth.

nofuckno...haha

HANG ON... "Extra Tidbit: Emmerich turned down the chance to make DIE ANOTHER DAY." Oh, it could have been worse, but only if Mr Emmerich looked better in Compton crack-whore gear... and BTW this isn't a dig at Roland, but at the Kiwi wanker that f****ed Brosnan's next movie! OziOziOzi...OiOiOi!

Shame they're not waiting with this one 'til December 2012... They could have hyped it up as the real end-of-the-world, Independence Day style, to coincide with the date.

Nothing against my man Woody H., but I can't see how this film could turn out to be anything other than psuedo-deep, pop-cult trash, coming as it does from Mr. Emmerich.

Harrelson I can stomach. But Emmerich should get out of the movie biz and start making car commercials or music videos or something.

I'll give him $100 to film my dog giving birth.
