His Personal Life:
Collin Farrell Film Career:
Farrell went on to appear in many American films: from the not so successful American Outlaws (2001) and Hart's War (2002), to leading roles in Phone Booth, S.W.A.T. and The Recruit.
Other high profile parts include a supporting role opposite Tom Cruise in Steven Spielberg's Minority Report (2002), and a villain in Daredevil.
A veritable A-list star, Farrell has not stopped working in small films. In late 2003, he returned to his native Ireland to work in the ensemble drama Intermission with another Irish star Cillian Murphy. He also appeared in the independent film A Home At The End Of The World (2004) before Hollywood came calling again. Farrell took on the title role of Alexander the Great in Oliver Stone's 2004 biopic Alexander.
A better role for Farrell was John Smith, the founder of 17th century colonial Jamestown, Virginia in The New World, which he followed with the independent film Ask the Dust, co-starring Salma Hayek. In 2006, Farrell starred with Jamie Foxx in Michael Mann's action-crime film Miami Vice. Farrell was next seen in Woody Allen's drama Cassandra's Dream. He played a troubled hit man who botches a job in Martin McDonagh's complicated comedy In Bruges, which opened the Sundance Film Festival in 2008.
