Distinctive Face of the Week: Colin Farrell

I'd like you all to know that this weekly post takes longer than a movie review to write. It takes longer than making fun of the Golden Globes red carpet looks. It takes forfreakingever. Why? Because it takes me all day to find someone with a truly distinctive face. I tried to make Anne Hathaway this week's distinctive face before realizing she looks strikingly similar to Emmy Rossum. Then I tried Demi Moore, but she looks like Jordana Brewster. Mila Kunis looks like Vanessa Hudgens, Zac Efron looks like a young Jared Leto, and then I was like, "oh What about Ashley Olson?" Before remembering she has a literal freaking twin. I figured this would be a quick and easy addition to this blog until I found out just how rare a distinctive face really is...

This week's Distinctive Face? Colin Farrell

It's like George Clooney and Enrique Iglesias had an Irish lovechild who looks
like he melts chocolate with his eyes
Ah Colin Farrell. Where to begin? Farrell is kind of like a Tom Hanks- he does Forrest Gump and then he does...Da Vinci Code. Colin here has been in some excellent films, and directed by the likes Oliver Stone, Joel Schumacher, Steven Spielberg, Woody Allen, and Peter Weir. He's been nominated over and over for Best Actor awards from pretty much everyone except the Academy, but also he was Bullseye in Daredevil. Yeah, remember that? NO! Ack don't recall it, it's too awful. 
Here's to make you feel better and forget about that whole Daredevil business
Farrell broke into mainstream Hollywood in 2000's Tigerland, and has been working his way up to the big time ever since. True, his career has been spotted with "eh" moments, but overall he's established himself as a versatile, talented actor. Farrell usually takes on challenging, not-the-norm roles, often affecting an accent. He's been cast in supporting roles under Tom Cruise, Christian Bale, Kevin Spacey, but graduated to leading roles in recent years. His life in the spotlight has been characterized by scandals- a sex tape, a crazy stalker, drugs and alcohol threatened to derail his career until he got sober.
I pretty much just don't want to write another paragraph
so is this picture, 'cause it, you know, says a
thousand words and stuff.
Best moment of his career so far? His role as a hitman with a heart in the dark comedy In Bruges. Think Boondock Saints meets a bit of Snatch. Check it. 'Cause it's amazing. His latest projects are London Boulevard with Keira Knightley, and The Way Back, which I've talked about before. Expect to see him later this year in the comedy Horrible Bosses, which stars kind of everyone, including the guy from the Old Spice commercials. Seriously.
Aw he has a nice smile too. Look,
Seriously, this is just so much better
than more words, right?
