Colin Farrell Biography

Colin James Farrell is an Irish actor. He first appeared on the BBC's Ballykissangel in 1998 and made his film debut in the Tim Roth-directed The War Zone a year later and was discovered by Hollywood when Joel Schumacher cast him in the lead in Tigerland. He then starred in Schumacher's Phone Booth and the American thrillers S.W.A.T. and The Recruit, establishing his international box-office appeal. During that time, he also appeared in Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report and as the villain Bullseye in Daredevil. After starring in the independent films Intermission and A Home at the End of the World he headed Oliver Stone’s biopic Alexander and the Terrence Malick Pocahontas movie, The New World.

Work in Michael Mann’s Miami Vice, the adaptation of John Fante's Ask the Dust and Woody Allen’s Cassandra's Dream followed, underscoring Farrell's popularity among Hollywood writers and directors; however, it was for his role in Martin McDonagh’s In Bruges that he received a Golden Globe Award. More recently, he co-starred in the Fright Night and Total Recall remakes and McDonagh's second feature, Seven Psychopaths. Source: Wikipedia
