Rampart, a police drama starring Woody Harrelson as corrupt LAPD officer Dave Brown, heads to Blu-ray and DVD on May 15th.  Written by L.A. Confidential novelist James Ellroy and directed by The Messenger Oren Moverman (he also has a writing credit on the film), the 1990s set story also stars Ben Foster, Robin Wright, Sigourney Weaver, and Steve Buscemi. Special features on the disc include behind the scenes featurettes as well as interviews with the cast and crew.

“He sees himself as doing bad things to bad people,” said Harrelson during the press junket interviews for Rampart.  “His whole cosmology has been kind of rationalized.  We all kind of self preserve that way.  There might be some kind of aspects in our personality that other people would say is despicable but we would say, ‘Well I need to do this because of this.’  We rationalize.  Dave Brown is no exception.”

Harrelson talks about spending time with cops from the Newton Division in preparation for Rampart:
