He’s our favourite Irish actor (sorry Neeson) so it’s only right we dedicate a blog post to Colin Farrell! We’ve picked out our 4 favourite films of his, what’s yours? Let us know in the comments…
1. In Bruges (2008)
We love In Bruges and it’s the top spot in our top 4 movies Colin Farrell has been in, alongside fellow Irishman Brendan Gleeson.
Farrell won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for the dark comedy. It follows the carhacters as hitmen in the city of Bruges but as you know it’s not all plain sailing. Check it out!
2. Seven Psychopaths (2012)
Seven Psychopaths was another dark comedy and stars Farrell alongside Woody Harrelson, Christopher Walken (legend) and more!
Farrell is a stuggling writer and the film is about his story he’s creating. You need to concentrate on this one but it’s really gripping and worth it if you do.
3. Phone Booth (2003)
This is classic Farrell this, as he was starting out in his fantastic career we found Phone Booth and what a film it is! Whole film set in a phone booth, this gripping thriller is right up there with the best.
Also featuring Forest Whitaker, Katie Holmes and Kiefer Sutherland, Farrell is held hostage in a phone booth by a Sniper, on the phone to the person that could kill him.
Fact for you: Jim Carrey was originally cast as Farrell’s character, Stu.
4. Horrible Bosses (2011)
If you’ve not seen Horrible Bosses then we’re not friends. It’s very funny and has a stellar line up of names, including our man Colin Farrell who plays the “Horrible boss” of Jason Sudeikis’ character, who’s out to kill him.
Also features Charlie Day, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, Kevin Spacey and more, what’s not to like here! Admittedly, Colin Farrell doesn’t play a massive part in this but his character is great so we had to include.
