THE PRIZE WINNER OF DEFIANCE OHIO

WOODY HARRELSON (Kelly Ryan), an accomplished film, television and stage actor, received Academy Award®, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award nominations for Best Actor for his portrayal of controversial magazine publisher Larry Flynt in Milos Forman's drama "The People vs. Larry Flynt.” Harrelson was most recently seen in Brett Ratner's "After the Sunset,” with Pierce Brosnan and Salma Hayek. His upcoming films include Mark Mylod's "The Big White,” with Robin Williams and Holly Hunter; Richard Linklater's "A Scanner Darkly,” with Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey, Jr. and Winona Ryder; and Niki Caro's "North Country,” with Charlize Theron.

Harrelson's past film credits include "Play It to the Bone,” "The Thin Red Line,” "The Hi-Lo Country,” "Edtv,” "Wag The Dog,” "Welcome to Sarajevo,” "Kingpin,” "Natural Born Killers,” "Indecent Proposal” and "White Men Can't Jump.”

A committed environmentalist, Harrelson joined his activism with his film efforts in Ron Mann's "Go Further,” a road documentary following Woody and friends on their bicycle journey down the Pacific Coast Highway from Seattle to Santa Barbara.

Harrelson first endeared himself to millions of viewers as a member of the ensemble cast of NBC's long-running hit comedy "Cheers.” For his work as the affable bartender Woody Boyd, he won an Emmy in 1989 and was nominated four additional times. He earned another nomination in 1999 when he reprised the role in a guest appearance on "Frasier.” He later made a return to television with a recurring guest role on the hit NBC series "Will & Grace.”

Balancing his film and television work with a career-long commitment to the theatre, in 1999, Harrelson directed his own play, "Furthest From the Sun,” at the Theatre de la Juene Lune in Minneapolis. He followed with the Roundabout's 2000 Broadway revival of the N. Richard Nash play "The Rainmaker”; Sam Shepard's "The Late Henry Moss,” the following year; and John Kolvenbach's "On an Average Day,” opposite Kyle MacLachlan, presented on London's West End in the fall of 2002. In the summer of 2003, Harrelson directed the Toronto premiere of Kenneth Lonergan's "This is Our Youth,” at the Berkeley Street Theatre.
