The first ‘True Detective’ season 2 trailer is here

I have to admit, I really couldn’t get into True Detective’s first season. I like Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson alright, but I just found it so slow, and not in a slow burn type of way, but just a ‘boring as hell’ one. Apparently it got way better if you were able to hang on for the first six episodes, but sorry, I’m not willing to give anything more than half its run just to get good.

That being said, I’m definitely on board for season 2. Rachel McAdams is the lead this time around, with Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch also starring. The first teaser trailer was released on Thursday, but it doesn’t really give us too much of a hint of what to expect, other than guns, police, crime and a shit ton of violence.

Will you be tuning in for the second season of True Detective? Do you think it’ll be as boring as the first (or did you think the first was great)?

Colin Farrell wants Ewan McGregor to be proud of his big dick

colin farrell ewan mcgregor

Ewan McGregor is Nylon Guys‘ cover star for their March 2015 issue, and in that issue, he talks about his life in Hollywood and his roles past and present. For some reason, there was commentary included from Colin Farrell, who really wanted to tell the world just how humble Ewan is about his apparently impressive dick:

“I don’t think Ewan is as proud of his penis as most men who are as well hung would—or should—or could be. I think that’s the greatest demonstration of his innate humility, that he doesn’t wear it like a badge of honor.”

Wow… well that’s special. Ewan McGregor kinda makes me want to vomit (as does Colin Farrell), so this story certainly didn’t have its intended effect on me, but I’m sure many ladies (and certain gents) out there will be impressed! I’d still love to know why this even came up, but perhaps some questions are better left unanswered.

Jolie Tells Pitt He Sucks In Bed; Pitt Gets Hammered

Oh man, I love the National Enquirer. Jest all you like, but half of the time they get their stories right and before anyone else. The other half of the time I think they just make shit up and I think this falls under that half.

Apparently Angelina Jolie told Brad Pitt that compared to Colin Farrell he sucks in bed and now Brad Pitt is an alcoholic or something.

from The National Inquirer

Brad caught Angie red-handed, admitting that she thinks he’s a so-so lover. Ever since then, he’s been on a drunken rampage – consuming copious amounts of his favorite beer and red wine…he’s showed no signs of slowing down on the booze. He’s been drink­ing to forget about the image of Angie and Colin together.

One might ask, how did he catch her “red-handed”? Was she spray-painting “COLIN FARRELL IS BETTER AT SEX THAN BRAD PITT” on their garage? No. Allegedly Jolie was talking on the phone to ex Billy Bob Thornton while Pitt was out but then he forgot his wallet and then this scene from Beverly Hills, 90210 played out:

As he walked into their bedroom, Brad overheard Angie say that he was a great guy, but Colin was the best lover she’d ever had! Then Angie told Billy Bob that her love life with Brad had gone cold, and she missed the wild, passionate sex she’d had with Colin!

Who was there to know this private information? This is like when Charles Foster Kane died whispering his last words, “Rosebud” but the nurse was in the other room. Whatever, this is great, let’s just keep going with this. Brad “exploded” and,

Demanded that Angie tell him everything about her relationship with Colin. She told Brad that she fell in love with Colin because he was dangerous and spontaneous. She also copped to sending Colin sexy pictures, dirty voice-mails and sexually explicit let­ters during their fling. Angie admitted that she had hoped for a future, includ­ing marriage and kids, with Colin, but he wasn’t ready. She couldn’t deny to Brad that he was her second choice! [...] she thrives on making him jealous.

So now Brad Pitt is all sad and not wanting to marry her, like ever, and is telling her she can’t talk to Colin Farrell.

Okay.

SDCC 2011: Colin Farrell Talks Sobriety, ‘Fright Night’

Holding the dubious distinction of Least Necessary Movie Ever: this year’s remake of the 1985 all-American horror-comedy Fright Night. (Ugh, the very idea! A remake of Gremlins could not offend me more.)

Nontheless, I’m extending cautious hopes for the remake in spite of myself, because A) Lars and the Real Girl‘s Craig Gillespie directs, B) in a feat of inspired casting, Superbad‘s Christopher Mintz-Plasse plays Evil Ed, and C) I’m a big, big Doctor Who fan.

Fright Night‘s real draw is supposed to be Colin Farrell, who plays the movie’s Sexy Vampire. He caused quite a stir during yesterday’s panel discussion at Comic-Con, in which no subject was off-limits.

Farrell, on rediscovering the joy of acting and recapturing his youthful optimism:

I came to success really quickly in relation to most other actors. The idea of how fast the chaos around me took grip, it’s insane. And I, myself personally, I lost sight of why I went to my first acting class when I was 17 in Dublin … I lost sight of that through this good fortune I was experiencing in Hollywood. So in the last six years I reconnected with the Colin who was 17. …It’s a lot of fun to do what we do. It’s such a fortunate place to find yourself.

Colin Farrell And Elizabeth Taylor Were BFFs

Can’t you just imagine the two of them out on the town together, hitting up gay bars and getting into fights? Adorable.

Ok, maybe they didn’t get into fights – Colin’s not like that anymore, ok? – but they were friends:

“How did we become friends? You know, the old story of boy meets girl, the boy pesters girl with too many phone calls at inappropriate hours of the night,” Farrell, 34, tells Access Hollywood.

“I was just lucky enough to become her friend in the last year and a half,” the actor added. “I adore her…still.”

Taylor, who passed away of congestive heart failure at the age of 79, spoke of her fondness for Farrell in the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar.

“I love Johnny Depp, and I love Colin Farrell,” she told Kim Kardashian, who conducted the interview. “They’re both brilliant, nuanced actors with great range.”

As a result of their unlikely friendship, the Horrible Bosses actor was asked to recite Gerard Manley Hopkin’s poem, “The Leaden Echo and the Golden Echo,” at Taylor’s funeral.

“Elizabeth chose it. It was a tricky poem as well,” Farrell laughed. “Even in passing she had me under the thumb, sweating bricks.”

Farrell admits he’s still having a hard time coping with the loss of his friend. “I just miss her,” he said.

Is that a heartbreaking little tale or what?  Ten minutes ago I didn’t even care about Colin Farrell, not even a little bit, and now all I want in this world is to hug him and hold his hand while we watch Cleopatra and cry. Who’s with me?

Rihanna and Colin Farrell Went on a Date?

So it looks like there might have been some truth to the rumors going around that Rihanna and Colin Farrell have been exchanging racy text messages. Bossip has the scoop on what’s going on with Rihanna and Farrell, and it sounds hot and heavy:

The pair did not want to be photographed together so came out of Santa Monica eatery Giorgio Baldi separately last night. Rihanna looked demure, by her standards, in black cropped trousers and a silver blouse. Her curly red hair made sure she was noticed though as she exited the Italian restaurant. Farrell meanwhile, looked rather sheepish as he made a quick dash out wearing jeans and a black T-shirt.

It has been reported in recent weeks that the pair have been sending flirty text messages to each other. The Sun claims that Farrell, 34 has ‘worked his charms on Rihanna to such an extent she hasn’t stopped texting him’, since they swapped numbers earlier this year when they both appeared on The Graham Norton Show in the UK. A source told the paper: ‘Colin was taken aback by some of the texts. He reckons he might well be in there. They’re both single, so why not?’ It is also rumoured that he will be introducing the 23-year-old to his two sons, James, seven and 18-month-old Henry, while she is in LA.

I mean, how hot would this couple be? Even though Colin Farrell’s kind of settled down in the past few years, and Rihanna is known for being a size queen, the two of them together?  TOTALLY HOT.

What do you guys think of this couple?

Colin Farrell’s Got a Job!

Remember 1985′s Fright Night with Chris Sarandon and the annoying-assed neighbor from Married With Children? The chick that played “Marcy.” … Amanda Bearse, right. Well, it looks like even the most obscure of horror movies don’t escape the curse of the Hollywood remake; reps for Colin Farrell have confirmed that he’ll be starring in the reboot, filling the place of the vampire’s shoes, originally played by Sarandon.

Congrats, Colin!

I mean, it’s no Phone Booth or anything, but hey. Fright Night. Everybody’s into the remakes these days. Good on you.
