Never forget: the time Colin Farrell was into line dancing

We’ve all got to start somewhere in fairness.

COLIN FARRELL MAY be one of our most successful acting exports but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t the odd morto moment.

While promoting new animated movie Epic this week he appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, where the topic of his dancing days come up, much to his mortification.

Before Phone Booth, Miami Vice or In Bruges Farrell was part of the country music phase that swept Ireland like a stetson-wearing rash in the 90s.

Dublin photographer Marc O’Sullivan snapped Colin at work.

He took the pictures in 1997 and he told DailyEdge.ie it took him 5 hours to dig up the images after going through 5,000 rolls of film.


Still, it’s worth it to relieve the hilarity of a stetson wearing, cut-off denim shirt clad Colin Farrell.

Here is Colin having a little bop:

Here is Colin giving the thumbs up and probably thinking to himself “I really need to get that role on Ballykissangel and kickstart my career”

What could be better then these pictures you ask?

A video flashback to this classic Colin Farrell moment?

Oh well, would you look at that:
