Colin Farrell Is Waiting for a "Big Film" to Come Along
Posted 09.21.09 by BrentJS
Actor Colin Farrell is a busy man. He recently attended the Toronto International Film Festival, where he had three movies to promote: Ondine, Triage, and London Boulevard.
Despite the fact that he's been keeping busy with smaller productions, Farrell told Irish Central that he would like to return to Hollywood to do a major genre movie.
I love good action films. I love the spectacle of guns in the cinema, I really do.
It's just whatever you respond to. If I could find something that was a really big film that I liked [I would do it].
Of course, acting is as much a business as anything else, and a leading role in a blockbuster can do wonders for an actor's bank account.
I'd love a big payday check. I have no moral revulsion to that at all.
Farrell also said that the fact he's about to become a father with his Ondine co-star, Alicja Bachleda, will not affect the roles he will go after.
Like, just do Pixar films? I don't think so.
Farrell also recently filled in for the late Heath Ledger in Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, playing a "transformation" of Ledger's character, as did Jude Law and Johnny Depp.
