Woody Harrelson has made a great career as a character actor, but it’s also a joy when he gets to carry a movie all by himself. So the idea of him playing LBJ in a talky biopic comes with a bit more anticipation than this type of film would normally generate.
We don’t have a trailer for Rob Reiner’s LBJ yet, so we’ll just have to make do with a brief clip to get our first look at Harrelson’s take. Luckily we have one here. Even more lucky, it involves breasts:
Under all that makeup, he definitely looks like LBJ. In fact it’s a bit alarming how little he looks like Woody Harrelson. This whole thing has Oscar bait written all over it, but since it’s Harrelson I’m going to give it a pass.
What do you think? Too much? Too silly? Let your voice be heard in the comments.
