“I’d be one to slip him some cyanide instead of jumping in front of a bullet.” – Woody Harrelson on protecting Donald Trump 

Brie Larson and Woody Harrelson star in the new drama The Glass Castle. The pair of actors play father and daughter in the film based on a true story. Destin Daniel Cretton, who worked with Brie Larson in Short Term 12, directs the film with Naomi Watts starring as the mother. 

The Glass Castle follows the first person narrative of Jeannette through three different time periods. Chandler Head plays the child, Ella Anderson the teen, and Brie Larson the adult. Jeannette’s father (Woody Harrelson) is an alcoholic who creates an imaginary world for her, and her mother (Naomi Watts) is an eccentric artist who lives a non-conformist life in poverty. 




Brie Larson’s career has exploded the last couple years after winning the Academy Award for Best Actress in 2015’s Room. She starred in this years’ hits Kong: Skull Island and Free Fire. She will also play Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel in next year’s Captain Marvel. Woody Harrelson also had a big year starring in the blockbuster War for the Planet of the Apes, as well as indie hits Wilson and The Edge of Seventeen. He will play the role of Beckett in next year’s highly anticipated A Star Wars Story: Untitled Han Solo Film. 

Film Inside’s reporter Rachel Kasuch sat down with Brie Larson and Woody Harrelson to discuss the making of The Glass Castle. Larson and Harrelson discuss childhood, dreams, and even Donald Trump. Woody revealed that when he was a child he wanted to be a Secret Service agent. “Luckily I didn’t become a Secret Service agent, I’d be having to protect Donald Trump right now and that just wouldn’t sit well,” says Harrelson, who reveals even more about what that kind job would entail.
