Woody Harrelson has appeared in more than 80 movies, but that doesn’t mean he can identify a hit right away. In fact, the actor admits he turned down both “Hunger Games” and the upcoming Han Solo movie.
“I turned down ‘Hunger Games’ twice. I didn’t have any idea it would be that big, but I didn’t think it was a good part,” Woody remembers. “I was wrong. It was a terrific part, and it was a terrific thing, but thank God [director] Gary Ross called me.”
As for the Han Solo movie, he also turned that movie down twice but luckily an exec “wouldn’t take no for an answer.”
