Colin Farrell is growing all the time as a actor and always seems a charming guy in interviews.

Colin Farrell is only good at playing Colin Farrell.In other words, a foul mouthed, uncouth, scumbag.

Which is why he's perfectly cast in movies like In Bruges and Seven psychopaths.


A completely specious assessment of Farrell's off-screen personality predicated on a couple of roles you've seen him play. Jesus, you are an idiot.

Are you going to apologise for your offensive comments about a member of another poster's family?

Nicholas Meyer, director of Star Trek 2 said once that there are two types off actors, those who can play anything, and those who are good at playing themselves.

William Shatner is an example of that.No one plays the Shat like the Shat! Thats not necessarily a criticism, in fact, its a compliment ! No wonder Chris Pine didnt even attempt at imitating Shatner in the new Star Trek, it just wouldnt work.

It's not libel if it's true.

It is a written statement intended to damage Mr. Farrell's reputation, probably not libel in a court of law, but surely a violation of Empire's own rules and guidelines. Mods, has Cool Breeze broken the rules of the forum?

I think we should talk to the mods about putting that into board's rules. "Thou shalt label actors scumbags" or some shit like that. We could call it "Cool Breeze's law".

Adam Sandler and Danny Dyer.

Just terrible actors, just play themselves in everything, or both?

I always thought he'd make a great Bond myself.

How about Michelle Rodriguez - always the "tough chick". Couldn't she a play a primary school teacher who sings in a choir whilst wearing a nice floral dress in some lame romcom for a change?

CB (and all for that matter). The guideline is to try and attack an individuals work rather that the individual themselves. Especially since the person in question here is related to a forum member, the above has been noted as offensive.

Thanks.

Not at all. Any chance to namedrop.

I can't lie, we're not blood-related (you ever see Spaceballs? It's a bit like the "I'm your brother's cousin's roommate..." bit ), but he's my aunt's cousin's son. I've never met him, but my father has on a few occasions and he's a very nice and humble chap by all accounts. So not a scumbag...(and see link on previous page for further proof of that).

I'm also distantly related to Neil Lennon through my mother-in-law's family. /shamelessnamedrop

That expression always makes me laugh. I'd have a pint with anyone.
I've always thought he came across as a decent guy. A bit of a hellraising piss-head, but it's better than the typical Prius driving, lentil-eating tee-total Hollywood types.

Hah say what? So you're firstly taking their word for it they're related, but also going with the personal offence line despite this being an discussion based on freedom of opinion? I wouldn't want to get caught defending Cool Breeze but this is all slightly absurd. Libel? What?


On topic - Morgan Freeman and Michael Ironside... but in the best way possible. They're also totally relatives of mine so you can't say a word against them or I'll have your reported.

But yeah, he is a good guy by all accounts.

Not sure why I'd lie about being related to him, but we live in a cynical, cynical world. It makes me sad.



Farrell, not Davidson. Obviously.
