Colin Farrell talks his dangerous romance with Noomi Rapace in 'Dead Man Down': Watch
Also: Is another Martin McDonagh collaboration in the cards?
Colin Farrell is just a romantic at heart. Take the following quote.
"When one softens up or opens up to the ideas of love one can potentially be hurt, which is one of the glorious things about love, you never know when it's gonna work or it's not, and you kinda have to dive in."
Now that's beautiful. It's also a completely out-of-context snippet from my recent conversation with the actor at the junket for "Dead Man Down," an upcoming thriller from "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" director Niels Arden Oplev that stars Farrell as Victor, a man who infiltrates the criminal empire of a powerful mob boss (Terrence Howard) he holds responsible for the murders of his wife and daughter several years earlier. As if that weren't sticky enough, into the picture comes Beatrice (Noomi Rapace), a vengeful former beautician who blackmails Victor into hunting down the man who left one side of her face permanently scarred in a drunk driving accident. Needless to say, hilarity (and an unlikely romance) ensues.
