VIDEO: Woody Harrelson (Haymitch) on 'Catching Fire' script: "It's a really strong script."

MTV had the chance to catch up with Woody Harrelson while promoting his new film, Seven Psychopaths, at the Toronto International Film Festival last weekend, where Woody talked about the Catching Fire script, new director Francis Lawrence, and how he is planning to approach Haymitch's character in the sequel, particularly the drunkenness.

Here's an excerpt from the transcript from MTV:
I think that it’s a really good script, a really strong script, so I feel good about that,” he said. “That’s the big question mark, since there was so little time to get that script together.”

As for his preparation process, Harrelson said he took an even deeper dive into Haymitch’s fragile, post-Games psyche. 
“Francis had asked me if I had studied PTSD — post-traumatic stress disorder — and I actually did in college. I was a psychology minor. So I met a guy who has PTSD in Maui,” Harrelson said. “You know, I like the way Francis is very thorough, very on top of everything. I really feel great. I loved Gary. I thought Gary did an incredible job with the first one, but I do think Francis is going to do great with this.”
