SEVEN POUNDS

WOODY HARRELSON's (Ezra) rare mix of intensity and charisma consistently surprises and delights audiences and critics alike for his work in both mainstream and independent projects.

Further illustrating his diverse appeal, Harrelson recently starred in the comedies Semi-Pro, opposite Will Ferrell and Andre Benjamin, and Surfer, Dude, opposite Matthew McConaughey. At the same time, Harrelson could be seen alongside Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem and Tommy Lee Jones in the Coen Brothers' Academy Award® winner for Best Picture, No Country for Old Men. For his performance in that film, Harrelson shared in the SAG Award for best ensemble cast.

Harrelson also recently starred in Brad Anderson's Transsiberian, Stuart Townsend's Battle in Seattle, and Zak Penn's The Grand.

Harrelson's critically-acclaimed portrayal of controversial magazine publisher Larry Flynt in Milos Forman's The People Vs. Larry Flynt garnered him Academy Award®, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild Nominations as Best Actor. Other highlights from Harrelson's film career include After the Sunset, 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, White Men Can't Jump, The Big White, A Scanner Darkly, The Prizewinner of Defiance, Ohio, and A Prairie Home Companion.

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 1988 and was nominated four additional times during his eight-year run on the show. In 1999, he gained another Emmy nomination when he reprised the role in a guest appearance on the spin-off series "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, in 1999 Harrelson directed his own play, "Furthest from the Sun” at the Theatre de la Juene Lune in Minneapolis. He followed next with the Roundabout's Broadway revival of "The Rainmaker;” Sam Shepherd's "The Late Henry Moss,” and John Kolvenbach's "On an Average Day,” opposite Kyle MacLachlan at London's West End. Harrelson directed the Toronto premiere of Kenneth Lonergan's "This is Our Youth” at the Berkeley Street Theatre. In the winter of 2005 Harrelson returned to London's West End, starring in Tennessee Williams' "Night of the Iguana” at the Lyric Theatre.

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.

Along with being a father to his three beautiful daughters, closest to his heart is www.voiceyourself.com, a website Harrelson co-created with his wife Laura Louie which promotes and inspires individual action to create global momentum towards simple organic living and to restore balance and harmony to our planet.
