Colin Farrell can’t help but be a rebel. In Dead Man Down, out today, he plays a gangster seeking revenge on the gang who killed his wife and daughter, totally ignoring the whole don’t-stoop-to-their-level thing. His latest role as a bad boy pursuing vengeance harks back to others in his repertoire, like the bad boy stuck in a phone booth (Phone Booth) the bad boy who conquered the Persian empire (Alexander), and the bad boy who happens to be a vampire (Fright Night).
And yet, the 36-year-old Dublin native manages to be even more of a badass in the press, repeatedly living up to his reputation as a hard-partying lothario. He didn’t get dubbed “the lusty leprechaun” for nothing—these are Colin Farrell’s Craziest Antics.
