“Out of the Furnace” is the tale of a backwoods crime boss in the south. Hooked on meth and rather violent, this guy was even a lot for Harrelson (a man known for more than a few disturbing parts). “It feels like a unique character for me to play,” he explained to Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan of the role.
“He’s the worst character I’ve ever played! Which is saying something. I really didn’t like being that guy. I was glad when we wrapped.”
On a happier note, Harrelson expressed enjoyment when talking about celebrating Thanksgiving as a vegan. “We just have ham,” he joked before giving a (slightly) more serious answer. “We have, like, vegetables.”
Don’t look for a tofurkey on Harrelson’s table though. He didn’t seem to be a huge fan of the faux-meat. “I’ve had tofurkey before. It’s a very dense food,” said Harrelson.
