Woody Harrelson stars in "Friend with Benefits," opposite Justin Timberlake and Emma Stone, as Tommy. Harrelson also recently starred in the movie "2012" as Charlie Frost.

Woody Harrelson garnered an Oscar nomination in the Best Supporting Actor category for his portrayal of a casualty notification officer in Oren Moverman's "The Messenger." He recently completed production on "Rampart," which reunites the actor with Moverman and co-stars Steve Buscemi, Robin Wright and Signorney Weaver and is based on a story by James Ellroy. He can soon be seen as the on screen host for director Pete McGrain's powerful new political documentary "Ethos."

Harrelson's critically-acclaimed portrayal of controversial magazine publisher Larry Flynt in Milos Forman's The People vs. Larry Flynt also earned him Academy Award, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild Best Actor nominations. Other films include "Play it to the Bone," "The Thin Red Line," "The Hi-Lo Country," "Ed TV," "Wag the Dog," "Welcome to Sarajevo," "Kingpin," "Natural Born Killers," "Indecent Proposal," "White Men Can't Jump," "After the Sunset," "North Country," Robert Altman's "A Prairie Home Companion," Richard Linkletter's "A Scanner Darkly," Paul Schrader's "The Walker," and the Academy Award-winning "No Country for Old Men," directed by the Coen brothers.

Harrelson will next star in "Zombieland" for director Ruben Fleischer and in the independent films "Defendor" and "Bunraku." Harrelson most recently co-starred with Jennifer Aniston and Steve Zahn in "Management." He appeared opposite Will Smith in "Seven Pounds," and with Mike Epps and Ray Romano in "The Grand," an improvisational comedy centered around a poker tournament, directed by Zak Penn. He also starred opposite Will Ferrell in "Semi-Pro," a comedy about the waning days of the American Basketball Association. In "TransSiberian," Harrelson and Emily Mortimer portrayed an American couple who board the TranSiberian express and are plunged into a web of duplicity and murder. He reteamed with his "North Country" co-star Charlize Theron in "Sleepwalkers" and in "The Battle in Seattle," with Theron and Andre Benjamin.

The actor combined his environmental activism with his film efforts in Ron Mann's "Go Further," a road documentary following Woody and friends on a 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, the actor won an Emmy in 1988 and was nominated four additional times during his eight-year run on the show. He appeared as a recurring guest-star on the hit series "Will and Grace," and reprised his role of Woody Boyd on a very special episode of "Frasier."

In 1999, the actor revived a career-long commitment to the theater by directing 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 N. Richard Nash play "The Rainmaker" in 2000, Sam Sheperd's "The Late Henry Moss" in 2001 and John Kolvenbach's "On an Average Day" opposite Kyle MacLachlan in 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. In the winter of 2005/2006 Harrelson returned to London's West End, starring in Tennessee Williams' "Night of the Iguana."
