Reality…or is it?

I read an article last week about Woody Harrelson.  My early memories of this actor was the funny, shy, and not all that bright character from Cheers.  Now, I read an article that Mr. Harrelson attacked a paparazzi cameraman claiming he mistook him for a zombie.

The story goes that Woody had just completed filming a zombie flick, and he was “still in character”.  Well wait a minute, isn’t that part of the responsibility of being an actor/actress…being able to distinguish your role from reality?  Should we just sit by as people start living in alternate realities that impact us all?  I think not.
