The Ultimate Guide to Woody Harrelson’s Greatest Roles in Film

He’s one of the greatest working American actors for a reason—in any given movie, the man is goofy, compelling, or downright terrifying. Few actors have transitioned so effortlessly between characters and genres as Woody Harrelson. From his early days as a sitcom star on Cheers to an illustrious film career that spans drama, action, and more comedy, it feels like everyone has a favorite Harrelson film. And you know what? There are no wrong answers! Harrelson joined Cheers as Woody Boyd—a dull yet good-hearted bartender—in 1985, just two years after he graduated from Hanover College. Before his big break, he worked as a film and television extra, and even as an understudy in the Neil Simon play Biloxi Blues. The actor began making movies while still working on Cheers. He mostly took on comedies at first—with some action thrown in—until he was nominated for an Academy Award in 1996 for his role in The People vs. Larry Flynt. In the decades since, Harrelson has firmly established himself as a sports-comedy veteran, as well as an actor who can believably play characters from any time period, including World War II and the dystopian future of The Hunger Games. In celebration of one of the greatest working American actors, here’s the ultimate guide to Harrelson’s best movies.
