In a move to boost tourism in Southern California, respected character actor James Woods guarantees that he'll meet with each and every single tourist. Woods said, "A lot of people come out here hoping to see somebody famous. So, why not cut out the middleman? I'll meet with anybody. Pose for pictures, pound fists or whatever the kids are doing these days. Just as long as they come out to Los Angeles." Woods kicked off the promotion with a sight seeing bus in West Hollywood and was greeted with an enthusiastic response. A tourist from Iowa said, "I'm in LA for a few days and I already met the guy from The Hard Way. How great is that? You can't get that kind of memory with a staycation, I'll tell you that much."
