Actor assaults cameraman; thought he was a zombie

Actor Woody Harrelson assaulted a paparazzi cameraman at New York's LaGuardia airport in an apparent case of mistaken identity. It seems he thought the photographer was a zombie.
"I wrapped a movie called 'Zombieland,' in which I was constantly under assault by zombies, then flew to New York, still very much in character," Harrelson said in a statement issued Friday by his publicist.

"With my daughter at the airport I was startled by a paparazzo, who I quite understandably mistook for a zombie," he said.
Yes, quite understandable. The way those guys pursue celebrity pictures is creepily similar to the way a zombie pursues brains.

well, if that's not a sign for Woody to put down the bong I don't know what is...

This screams for a 'tone of voice' check. Sure he's a stoner, but the paparazzi, quite often, deserve the treatment they get.

Well, if by "quite often" you mean "every time some crazy actor kicks their ass", then yeah.
