Michael Shannon on Woody Harrelson in ‘Rampart’

SAG Preview 2011: Actors on Actors

“Woody just works from the ground up. You get the feeling that every molecule in his body is focused on the task at hand. I’ve never seen somebody be so focused. And obviously going through every single conundrum and contortion that his character is going through and feeling it all very deeply is a beautiful thing to watch. There’s a scene towards the end of the film where his daughters come to visit him after he’s been kicked out of the house, and that’s pretty unforgettable.”
