Colin Farrell stars in "Horrible Bosses," opposite Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis, as Pellit Jr. Farrell will next be seen as the charismatic next-door-neighbor vampire in Craig Gillespie's comedy horror feature "Fright Night," a remake of the 1985 thriller; and in the sci-fi action adventure "Total Recall," for director Len Wisemen, currently in production for a 2012 release.

Colin Farrell won a 2008 Golden Globe Award for his performance in the dark comedy "In Bruges," which followed a pair of hit men who hide out in Bruges, Belgium after a difficult job in London.

Among his other recent features are William Monahan's "London Boulevard," based on the Ken Bruen bestseller about a newly released criminal who resists the temptation to return to a gangster life by taking a job looking after a reclusive young actress, played by Kiera Knightley; Peter Weir's "The Way Back," with Ed Harris and Jim Sturgess, about a group of soldiers who escape a Siberian gulag; Neil Jordan's "Ondine," about an Irish fisherman who discovers a woman he thinks is a mermaid; and Scott Cooper's acclaimed drama "Crazy Heart," alongside Jeff Bridges.

Farrell's previous film credits include Gavin O'Conner's "Pride and Glory"; Woody Allen's "Cassandra's Dream"; "Miami Vice"; Oliver Stone's "Alexander"; Terrence Malick's "The New World"; "Ask the Dust," based on the novel by John Fante; "The Recruit," opposite Al Pacino; "A Home at the End of the World," based on the Michael Cunningham novel; and roles in two Joel Schumacher films, "Phone Booth" and "Tigerland." He also appeared in "Minority Report," "Daredevil," "American Outlaws," "SWAT" and "Intermission."

Born and raised in Castleknock in the Republic of Ireland, Farrell is the son of former football player Eamon Farrell and nephew of Tommy Farrell, both of whom played for the Irish Football Club Shamrock Rovers in the 1960s. It was Farrell's teenage ambition to follow in their footsteps, however, his interest soon turned towards acting and he joined the Gaity School of Drama in Dublin. Before completing his course, he landed a starring role in Dierde Purcell's miniseries "Falling for a Dancer," a starring role in the BBC series "Ballykissangel," and, soon after, a featured role in Tim Roth's directorial debut, "The War Zone."
