A native of Ireland, COLIN FARRELL (Danny Witwer) came to the attention of American audiences in Joel Schumacher's Tigerland. Farrell won a Best Actor award from the Boston Film Critics for his portrayal of a roughneck Texan recruit in boot camp during the Vietnam War. Most recently, he appeared with Bruce Willis in Hart's War.

Farrell's early teen ambitions were to follow in his father's footsteps and become a football player. However, his interest soon turned toward acting, and he joined the Gaiety School of Drama in Dublin. Before completing his course, he landed in a role in Deirdre Purcell's miniseries Falling for a Dancer. A starring role in the BBC series Ballykissangel, in addition to a featured role in Tim Roth's directorial debut The War Zone soon followed.

More recently, he has been seen in Thaddeus O'Sullivan's Dublin gangster movie Ordinary Decent Criminal, co-starring Kevin Spacey. He was also seen as Jesse James in American Outlaws. He recently starred for director James Foley in The Farm, opposite Al Pacino, and he will soon be seen in Phone Booth, a thriller that reunites him with director Joel Schumacher.
