New Photos of Colin Farrell in Peter Weir's The Way Back 2009-12-23 14:30:01

Colin Farrell — Love Him or Leave Him?

Is Colin Farrell having a career resurgence? I'm seeing the actor everywhere this week thanks to new release The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus and an uncredited cameo in Crazy Heart (check back later for my reviews of both films). Then I spotted these new pics from the upcoming Peter Weir movie The Way Back, and he pops up in them, too!

I used to have a fascination with Farrell and his Irish bad-boy charm, always cursing up a storm on late-night shows in his thick brogue. For a while he was pretty in demand with big-budget films like Minority Report or Alexander, but over the years, I've seen less of him (perhaps because he's no longer a tabloid fixture). Farrell's a good actor, so I welcome more time with him on the big screen, but I'm still on the fence about how I feel about him nowadays.

What's your take — do you love Farrell in anything and everything? Or are your feelings generally more "meh"?

i was totally smitten by him back in the day but then my interest fizzled. even so, he's still hot and when he's not busy knocking models up, he gives some pretty good performances on film (and evidently in sex tapes per green fairy :P )!

I don't like Colin that much as an actor but I respect him because of the way he takes his son.My son is disabled and at one time I thought he had angelman syndrome like Colin's son.I read alot about the syndrome and I read articles about him and his son.It's a challenge taking care of a special needs child and you rarely hear about celebrities with special needs children so I respect him for that.

Well, I managed to find his home-made porn, and if I'm strictly going with least the sex would be good

Loved him in The New World and In Bruges. I think his acting ability is underrated. He's very good when he has good material to work with.

I love Colin Farrell *this* much!! Always have, even when his career seemed to be headed for the crapper (thanks, Oliver Stone). But its with In Bruges that I really got to appreciate his might as an actor. He was masterful and deserved an Oscar nom for that movie. Can't wait for his upcoming moves!

I actually wasn't that huge of a Colin Farrell fan until In Bruges. He was so good in it that I had to go back and see some of his less well known things to get a good appreciation for him. I'm not a huge fan of the blockbuster stuff except for The Recruit and I still didn't even love that movie. I did though really like Ask the Dust and Intermission. Hated Alexander, and the New World (although I've been told if you put them on without sound they're much better).

i think that these days you have to love him. he's gotten over some of the harder bad boy stuff kind of like how JD did but he's still got some of that in him. instead now he's taking responsibility for his family and his career.

I was so in love with him right after Minority Report. I grew out of him when he got bloated and was only in bad movies, but I watched In Bruges and fell back in love.
