If you would have said in 1993 that Woody Harrelson would be the cast member coming out of the finale of Cheers that would go on to have the most high-profile, eclectic, and successful Hollywood career, many people would have said you were crazy. Two of those people were the younger selves of Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast hosts Will Johnson and Don Shanahan. Yet, here we are in 2021 with Woody Harrelson and his stunning body of work across multiple genres and levels of film and television.

For our 26th episode, 25YL film critics, ill-informed dads, and svelte school teachers Will Johnson and Don Shanahan team up on another “Deep Cut” discussion on the legacy of another celebrated performer. Suggested by Will Johnson, the duo compared their love/hate takes and viewing recommendations for the unlikely chameleon that has become Woody Harrelson, one of the hardest working actors of this generation. They work around the easy and obvious to peer further down the career resume.
