"It's definitely a big deal for me," says Harrelson, who estimates he only had two thirds of the script mapped out when he began workshopping the play.

"If you're wanting to try a play out and not be in New York where the spotlight would be even 100 times more intense, I think it's a great place because it's a town that really knows theatre and gets into theatre and has a respect for theatre. I can't think of many other places in North America that have this level of theatre and theatre interest."

TORONTO When planning the debut of his semi autobiographical play, "Bullet For Adolf," three factors loomed large for actor Woody Harrelson: location, location, location.

But it's clear his affection for Toronto extends far beyond the theatre scene. Harrelson also rattles off favourite local haunts, including a downtown yoga studio, a raw food restaurant and the clothing store Roots.

"To be perfectly frank we wanted to come up with a title that people wouldn't forget. So that's why we got this title. It might be a bit of a stretch to use it," he admits.

"I know a lot of people, they really can't break out of romantic comedy or they can't break out of doing action and they want to. So, in spite of the fact that other aspects my career might not be doing as well as those guys I feel pretty good about the fact that it's not boxed in."

The "Zombieland" star wanted to work out the kinks with an extensive workshop and then launch the piece in a creative, welcoming environment. He settled on his "favourite Nike T Shirt Long Sleeve city in North America" Toronto.

"I've got three screenplays three quarter written, each one.

"There's a character based on me. Hopefully when you watch it you'll be able to figure it out, or hopefully not, maybe. It's not the most flattering (portrait)," says Harrelson.

Fun and games aside, Harrelson admits to feeling more than a little pressure as he hammers out the final details in "Bullet For Adolf," which he directs and co wrote. The comedy is inspired by the summer after college when he worked construction in Houston.

"It's a play that brings together a . very diverse group of people. And then the inciting incident is there is an old artifact that is stolen and people are trying to figure out who took it. But I guess if you asked Quality Nike Tracksuit

From there he leapt to film, where his roles have been eclectic and acclaimed. They include a homicidal psychopath in "Natural Born Killers," a porn publisher in "The People Vs. Larry Flynt," a cocky bounty hunter in "No Country For Old Men," a troubled army officer in "The Messenger," a mentally impaired vigilante in the Canadian indie, "Defendor," and an impulsive, Twinkie loving cowboy in "Zombieland."

On Thursday, Harrelson will offer fans a hint of upcoming projects with an appearance at TIFF Bell Lightbox to discuss his varied career in front of an audience.

Our Youth,' which I did for two consecutive summers the second because it was so much fun the first summer," Harrelson says in a recent interview, referring to 2003 and 2004, when he directed the Kenneth Lonergan script.

"He was, like, really the second black dude I had really ever hung out with and I was the second white dude he'd hung out with so there was a lot to learn about people's perspectives, philosophies. A little bit of that's in the play but mostly it's just good strong comedy," Harrelson says in his laid back southern drawl.

Throughout, an interest in writing has been a constant thread.

It wasn't long after that Houston summer that Harrelson got his breakout role as the sweet but dim witted bartender Woody Boyd on the long running sitcom, "Cheers."

"Bullet for Adolf" revolves around eight characters who come together during the hot Houston summer of 1983. It's billed as a "comedy about opinions, ideas and friendships."

"I feel lucky to not be boxed in by genres, which is cool," says Harrelson, whose other theatre stints have included starring roles in London's West End throughout the 2000s.

"I'm really hoping people like it. And if they hate it, I don't know. Depression is going to happen for me."

The 49 year old, who famously led hundreds of people in a massive outdoor yoga session at the University of Toronto in 2003, says he's grateful that his career has been varied enough to allow him to pursue his whims.
