Woody Harrelson is, for the moment, at peace.Assured that his orange juice is freshly squeezed, he relaxes enough to cross his legs in a semi-yoga position and massage a large, naked foot.For Mr. Harrelson, being mellow isn't as easy as his laid-back demeanor might indicate. After all he has a lot on his mind: On a personal basis, he is a new father. Professionally, he has a new movie -- "Indecent Proposal" with Robert Redford and Demi Moore -- which opened Wednesday. The last episode of the long-running television series, "Cheers," in which he co-stars, will air in May. And he is author, director and star of a new play, "Furthest From the Sun," which opens a three-week run at a small Los Angeles playhouse in early April.

NEW YORK -- The word slipped out accidentally, one of those Freudian slip things. In discussing Gregg Jefferies and his playing third base next season, Bud Harrelson began the sentence with the phrase, "If I'm back . . ."That first word, that "if," was the first acknowledgment by Harrelson that he may not occupy the manager's office at Shea Stadium beyond the weekend, when the New York Mets close out the home season. Harrelson also disclosed that he will remain with the Mets in some capacity next year.

"White Men Can't Jump," which celebrates the game of pick-up basketball, is itself like a game of pick-up basketball: it's intense, raggedy and explosive, now and then yielding moments of sheer gravity-defying grace, yet just as capable of producing air balls and pratfalls.The movie plays a little too glibly with racial stereotypes, for my taste: it begins with the postulation that basketball, in the inner city, has become entirely the property of African Americans and thus when an Anglo American from Louisiana bumbles onto the court, it is a given that he will be a dodo.

Sited somewhere between "Midnight Cowboy" and "High Noon," "The Cowboy Way" is a movie that doesn't know what time it is. And whatever time it is, it probably isn't time to let two gun-happy bozos loose on the streets of Manhattan, where they solve any problem with indiscriminate applications of hot lead.The movie, you may be surprised to discover after experiencing both trailers and a TV ad campaign, is a thriller-comedy that turns out to be a lot more thriller than comedy. Its laughs are few and far between, at least when the scriptwriters are trying to come up with them -- I saw stars Keifer Sutherland and Woody Harrelson interviewed on a Washington TV channel and they were far funnier there than at any time in the film.

Yes, that really was actor Woody Harrelson tooling around Baltimore on a bike Friday afternoon. Master illusionist David Blaine was in tow, according to Joe Traill, the owner of Joe's Bike Shop in Fells Point. Traill said that Harrelson has been a customer of his ever since he came in Baltimore in 2011 to film "Game Change. " "I think a bike is his preferred mode of transport around the city," Traill said. But, he said, this was the first time Blaine had ever been inside the shop.

A couple of hard-edged veteran cops are driving down a desolate Louisiana road after investigating a grisly crime scene in HBO's new Sunday-night drama, “True Detective.” They have been partners for three months but have spoken little about their personal lives. “Ask you something?” the older detective (Woody Harrelson) says. “You a Christian, yeah?” “No,” his partner (Matthew McConaughey) replies, looking out the passenger-side window at the barren landscape.

An encounter with the undead ... paparazzi Woody Harrelson is likening a paparazzo he tussled with at a New York airport to one of the undead zombies he battled in his most recent film. In a statement released Friday, Harrelson jokingly compares the scrutiny of the paparazzi to his being "constantly under assault by zombies" in his upcoming film, Zombieland. Celebrity gossip site TMZ posted a video on Thursday of Harrelson chasing one of their photographers, who followed the actor and his 12-year-old daughter through New York's LaGuardia Airport.

People who marry for money have the hardest job. You don't get the money. You just get to look at it!" This is a line from Paul Schrader's 2007 movie The Walker. It's uttered by, none other than, the living legend Lauren Bacall. This movie played a lot of festivals last year, had a limited run in the U.S. last December, and its DVD has just been released in Iceland, of all places! (Hey, us regular moviegoers would like to see it.) Woody Harrelson plays the actual "walker" in this movie, which is reminiscent of director Schrader's classic American Gigolo, which starred Richard Gere.
