Woody Harrelson, Apocalypse Consultant Leads Off Clips from 2012
10.16.09 by REELZ
Fresh from battling the undead in Zombieland, Woody Harrelson is testing out a new cause in 2012 by spouting off about the end of days on his crackpot radio show. So of course, in this new clip from the movie, an apocalypse-curious Mayan expert (John Cusack) comes to consult him about what exactly is going to set the end of the world in motion. As if the ramshackle room he's broadcasting from weren't deterrent enough, Harrelson's character further undermines his credibility by answering the question with a cute little cartoon he's cooked up to explain it all. From the look in Cusack's eyes you can seen that he's no longer so sure that this is the apocalypse prognosticator he's been looking for.
This is the first footage from the movie to really go beyond the roller coaster-ride aspects of ending the world, instead dipping into the crazy in-character humor that Harrelson has been teasing on his blog since early this year. On top of that, the studio has released some behind-the-scenes footage offering a look at the president (Danny Glover) being forced to acknowledge that the cardboard crazies were right.
