PRIDE AND GLORY

COLIN FARRELL (Jimmy Egan) is an internationally renowned actor who has been recognized for his work in major studio releases and smaller independent features. Farrell is currently filming the fantasy drama "Ondine,” under the direction of Neil Jordan. The story revolves around an Irish fisherman who discovers a woman he thinks is a mermaid. He also recently completed production on Terry Gilliam's "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnasus,” alongside Jude Law and Johnny Depp, and the thriller "Triage,” for Bosnian director Danis Tanovic. All three films are due out in 2009.

Farrell most recently starred opposite Brendan Gleeson in the independent film "In Bruges,” which premiered at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. The dark comedy follows a pair of hit men who hide out in Bruges, Belgium, after carrying out a difficult job in London. His recent film work also includes the Woody Allen film "Cassandra's Dream,” which premiered at the 2007 Venice Film Festival; Michael Mann's "Miami Vice”; and Robert Towne's "Ask the Dust,” based on the novel by John Fante.

Early in his film career, Farrell earned a London Film Critics Circle Award for his work in Joel Schumacher's "Tigerland.” He later reunited with Schumacher in the thriller "Phone Booth.” Farrell was also nominated for an Empire Award for Best Actor for his role in Steven Spielberg's "Minority Report.” His other film credits include Terrence Malick's "The New World”; Oliver Stone's "Alexander”; "A Home at the End of the World,” based on the novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Cunningham; "Intermission”; "S.W.A.T.”; "Daredevil”; Roger Donaldson's "The Recruit," opposite Al Pacino; "Hart's War”; and "American Outlaws.”

A native of Ireland, Farrell was born and raised in Castleknock, the son of Eamon Farrell and nephew of Tommy Farrell. Both Tommy and Eamon Farrell played for the Irish Football Club Shamrock Rovers in the 1960s and it was Colin's early teenage ambition to follow in their footsteps. However, his interest soon turned towards acting and he joined the Gaiety School of Drama in Dublin.

Before completing his course, Farrell landed a starring role in the miniseries "Falling for a Dancer," adapted by Deirdre Purcell from her own novel. He went on to star in the BBC series "Ballykissangel," and had a featured role in Tim Roth's directorial debut, "The War Zone."

Farrell currently makes his home in Dublin, Ireland.
