Woody Harrelson’s father died in prison this week. He was incarcerated for murdering a federal judge on behalf of a drug dealer who paid him for the hit. Prior to that murder, the elder Harrelson killed at least one other person, a Texas businessman.

And people wondered how actor Harrelson “prepared” for his stunning,” “powerful” portrayal of a murderer in “Natural Born Killers.” It’s called genetics. Check it out:

In [2002] Woody was wrestled to the ground by policemen and arrested after he went berserk in the back of Les’s taxi. The cabbie said the star acted like a “caged animal”.

Maybe the next time Woody Harrelson does a public service announcement, he’ll start it with: “I’m not a murderer like my father, but I play one in the movies.”
