It really seems like bad boy Colin Farrell is finally turning into a family man!
Is Colin Farrell getting hitched to girlfriend Alicja Bachleda? The 33-year-old bad-boy actor was spotted in Krakow, Poland for the baptism of his son, Henry, who was born in October — and he was wearing a band around his right hand ring finger!
Of course, if it was a wedding ring, it would be on his left hand … but is it a symbol that he and Alicja are going to take things to the next level?
Colin also spent time with his other son, six-year-old son James, over the Christmas holiday. Colin took James (his son with ex-girlfriend Kim Bordenave) to his brother’s same-sex marriage in Dublin on Dec. Dec. 27.

Wow, Colin, it »

When Heath Ledger passed away last year, he was in the middle of shooting director Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. It seemed like the movie would have to remain unfinished, until a plot convention was created that allowed Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell to step in and take turns sharing Ledger's final role. Both Depp and Law have finally opened up about what it was like to fill in for Ledger during an interview with HitFix. Depp praised the production, particularly the performances.
It was an honor to represent Heath. He was the only player out there breathing heavy down the back of every established actor's neck with a thundering and ungovernable talent that came up on you quick, hissing rather mischievously with that cheeky grin, "Hey... get on out of my way boys, I'm coming through..." and does he ever!!! Heath is a marvel, »

While I zero respect for the Hollywood Foreign Press as they always seem to vote for the studio that wined and dined them the best, I always watch the show as it’s loaded with big name presenters and they serve alcohol all night. Even though the show is tame nowadays as everyone watches what they say, in the past you never knew what might happen as half the crowd was drunk and then getting on stage to accept an award. »

Verne Troyer, who starred with Ledger in The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus, which was finished with the help of Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law, said: 'I just think of having dinner with him and being able to talk to him and being surprised that he was really open and down to earth. He was a kind, giving person, even on set. And he had huge enthusiasm, which was sort of contagious.' Of finishing the movie after Ledger's death, he said:'i think we all came together as a group, as a family, you know, to finish it for Heath. Johnny Depp just »

Terry Gilliam has always had a star-crossed career. His magnum opus, "Brazil," was sliced-and-diced and essentially neutered when it hit American shores. The problems he ran into shooting "Man of La Mancha," a film he never finished, have been widely documented. "Tideland," his last film and his most personal movie to date, was (rightly) savaged by critics and ignored by most audiences. And during his latest film, "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus," leading man Heath Ledger died during shooting. Of course, that means "Imaginarium" has to be considered with that in mind, doesn't it? Because Gilliam's solution, having Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell to step into Ledger's shoes for various sequences, wasn't a choice borne out of anything but necessity. Essentially, it's a conceit that you have to decide if you're able to forgive as an audience member, but since you know the history behind the film and Ledger's death, »
Verne Troyer has paid tribute to the late Heath Ledger. Ledger, who starred alongside Troyer in The Imaginarium Of Dr Parnassus, died while the film was still being made. His part was later filled by Jude Law, Johnny Depp and Colin Farrell. "I actually didn't even really think about whether we'd ever go back into production after his death," Troyer told Parade. "My first thoughts were with his family. I just thought it was impossible that he was gone. Then, when [director] Terry Gilliam sort of recovered, he talked to us about not quitting. "I think we all came together as a group, (more) »
