The View: Woody Harrelson Now You See Me Preview
Woody Harrelson has been in the acting business for quite some time. The 51-year-old actor has credited parts going back as far as the ‘80s, but his biggest breaks came from his parts on movies like White Men Can’t Jump and the famous television series Cheers, where he played a simple-minded bartender from Wisconsin, Woody Boyd. His latest role will be on the upcoming Now You See Me.
Now You See Me is a modern thriller about a team of FBI agents tracking a team of hot-shot illusionists that perform heists on banks during their performances and reward the crowd with money.
With a plot like that, it has me wondering…can’t the FBI put 2 and 2 together and realize that these heists just happen to take place during these performances? I’m probably missing something. We’ll just wait and see what Woody Harrelson has to say about it.
The View: Jane Lynch
The actress who struggled for many years with alcoholism in the past had a lot of small breaks before she saw any big one. Taking on small, occasional roles on shows like Family Guy, the actress got her big break on the silver screen with The 40 Year Old Virgin. Jane Lynch has also seen a lot of success with her role on Fox’s Glee, where she plays the brutal cheerleading coach, Sue Salvester. She is now playing in the latest Broadway production of Annie.
