Inadvertent writing advice from Woody Harrelson

I was reading an interview with Woody Harrelson today and came to a line that really got my attention. The interview was for a movie he has coming out called Seven Psychopaths. He’s actually talking about Martin McDonagh, who is the director and writer of the movie.

“Martin’s one of those guys where the darkness and the light are giving each other the right amount of room to laugh hysterically.”

How brilliant is that? It’s quirky character depth in one simple sentence or quirky writer depth, either way you want to go.
