Colin Farrell's hair deserves all the awards
His alcoholic, violent, emotionally unstable character Ray Velcoro was issued greasy long locks and an impetuously full mustache along with a police uniform for this season of the HBO show. If Emmy ballots had a hair category, you'd have your frontrunner now.
Farrell's follicles have always served a great purpose, if you look at his roles from the last 10 years. In the gallery below, we have fun with his characters' lock-looks and prove that Farrell, at least for this reason, deserves all the awards.
