Colin James Farrell (born May 31, 1976) is an Irish actor, who starred in the Miami Vice film as Miami-Dade detective James "Sonny" Crockett.


Farrell was born in Dublin, Republic of Ireland, and raised as a Roman Catholic. His first acting experience was in small parts on British and Irish television, before his breakthrough role in Tigerland. His next two films, American Outlaws and Hart's War (with Bruce Willis), were not commercially successful, but each of the three films he made in 2003, Phone Booth (with Domenick Lombardozzi), S.W.A.T. and The Recruit were box office successes. His next film, Intermission, was financed and produced in his native country and held the record for the highest-grossing Irish film for several years. Since then he has appeared in A Home At The End Of The World, Alexander, The New World, Ask The Dust, Miami Vice, In Bruges, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Crazy Heart, Ondine, London Boulevard, Horrible Bosses (with Miami Vice film co-star Jamie Foxx) and his most recent appearance in Fright Night.

Personal life

Farrell briefly married English actress Amelia Warner in 2001, but they split after only four months together. Farrell has two children, one with Kim Bordenave (whom he lived with from 2002-2003) and one with Alicja Bachleda-Curus (whom he lived with from 2009-2010).
