VIDEO: Woody Harrelson Transforms Into ‘LBJ’ for Rob Reiner-Directed Biopic

See the actor’s dramatic new look in the trailer for the upcoming film

July 28, 2017

The trailer for the upcoming Rob Reiner-directed “LBJ” biopic is here complete with Woody Harrelson’s dramatic transformation into the 36th U.S. president.

The film—also starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jeffrey Donovan, and Bill Pullman—centers around Vice President Johnson’s transition into Commander in Chief following the assassination of John F. Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963 and his push for historic legislation like the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Director Rob Reiner visited the Stern Show in 2016 and told Howard about developing his production company, Castle Rock Entertainment, as well as getting “Seinfeld” off the ground, working with a very method Kathy Bates on “Misery,” and casting “When Harry Met Sally.” Check out that interview here.

Harrelson—who last sat down with Howard in 2012—has already had a big year after starring in the summer blockbuster “War for the Planet of the Apes.”

Check out Woody’s new look in the trailer for “LBJ” (above) and catch it in theaters Nov. 3.
