Both the poster and the trailer for Rampart have promised that Woody Harrelson is playing the most corrupt cop you’ve ever seen on screen. And from the looks of the relentlessly intense preview, Harrelson’s hard-drinking, rule-bending police officer could just as well be shouting that Denzel Washington’s crooked cop in Training Day ain’t got s–t on him.
Harrelson, whose performance as L.A. officer Dave Brown earned raves at this year’s Toronto Film Festival (EW’s Owen Gleiberman said the actor plays the part with “intricate demonic force”) and is already earning Oscar buzz, is downright scary in the trailer (this ain’t no Haymitch, kids). (“I hate all people equally,” he boasts.) Of course, while Harrelson is playing a baddie, he’s in good company with the likes of Robin Wright, Ned Beatty, Steve Buscemi, Sigourney Weaver, and his Messenger co-star Ben Foster.
