Colin Farrell has had a distinguished career of nearly twenty-plus years in film and television. An accomplished actor recognized the world over, Farrell is currently shooting Warner Bros. and DC Comics' "The Batman" for director Matt Reeves in the co-starring role as legendary villain the 'Penguin.' Farrell can next be seen in A24's "After Yang" and, in Fall 2020, he re-teams with Brendan Gleeson and writer/director Martin McDonagh to shoot "The Banshees of Inisheer" for Fox Searchlight. Farrell was most recently seen in Tim Burton's 2019 live action film "Dumbo" and Fox's 2018 ensemble feature "Widows," directed by Steve McQueen and co-starring Viola Davis. In 2017, Farrell made his second film with Yorgos Lanthimos, "The Killing of a Sacred Deer" opposite Nicole Kidman for A24. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival along with Sofia Coppola's "The Beguiled," in which he also starred with Nicole Kidman, Elle Fanning, and Kirsten Dunst. That same year, he appeared opposite Denzel Washington in the Sony film "Roman Israel, Esq.," written and directed by Dan Gilroy. Lanthimos's "The Lobster," co-starring Rachel Weisz, was Farrell's first time working with the reputable director. The film won the Jury Prize at the 68th Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for a 2016 BAFTA. Farrell was also nominated for "Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy" at the Golden Globe Awards, "Best Actor" at the British Independent Film Awards, and "Best European Actor" at the European Film Awards for his role in the film. June 2015 marked Farrell's television debut in the second season of HBO's "True Detective." In 2009, he won a Golden Globe for his role in Martin McDonagh's "In Bruges." Past work also includes "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," "Miss Julie," "Saving Mr. Banks," "Winter's Tale," "Dead Man Down," "Total Recall," Peter Weir's "The Way Back," "London Boulevard," "Fright Night," the Warner Bros. comedy "Horrible Bosses," and "Ondine." Farrell also had memorable roles in Gavin O'Conner's "Pride and Glory," "Miami Vice," Oliver Stone's "Alexander," Terrence Malick's "The New World," "Ask the Dust," "The Recruit," "A Home at the End of the World," based on the Michael Cunningham novel, and two of Joel Schumacher's films, "Phone Booth" and "Tigerland." Other notable film credits include "Minority Report," "Daredevil," "American Outlaws," "SWAT," and "Intermission." Born and raised in Castleknock in the Republic of Ireland, Farrell attended the Gaity School of Drama in Dublin before landing starring roles in Dierde Purcell's miniseries "Falling for a Dancer," the BBC series "Ballykissangel," and Tim Roth's directorial debut, "The War Zone." Farrell currently resides in Los Angeles with his two sons.
