Per Deadline, Harlow was hired “after his first ever screen audition, immediately winning over the filmmakers and execs,” and will fill the role Woody Harrelson made iconic in the 1992 original.
“You know, I did the work to get it… I put the time in with the script. I sat with it. I considered things. I tried to be egoless during the audition, take notes, do what I had to do. And it came…. I just want to kill it. I just want to be good and I want to do everything I can to make it good,” Harlow told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe in a 2022 interview when speaking about landing the part.
