Colin Farrell told a San Diego crowd that having the luxury of being selective about the roles he plays has made life easier in recent years.
Farrell, 35, said at Comic-Con his career had some bumps early on, not the least of which was too much partying, which led to his decision to jump on the wagon. “Success came really quickly for me. It was insane,” said Farrell. “Recently I reconnected to that Colin who went to his first acting class in Dublin at 17.”
Along with Fright Night, Colin Farrell took part in the Total Recall panel. Farrell talked about playing who realizes new truths about the world around him, he said he loved the Arnold Schwarzenegger original – the same thing he said about the first Fright Night earlier in the day.
“You can love two things, can’t you?” Farrell asked. “I thought it was different enough and did not tread the same ground. I loved the idea of a man journeying from a deep, deep slumber to consciousness.”
