Colin Farrell's Son Diagnosed With Angelman Syndrome

| Filed under: Ellen DeGeneresColin FarrellFamily

Colin Ferrell's son

Colin Farrell has revealed his 7-year-old son, James, has been diagnosed wih Angelman Syndrome.

AS is an uncurable neuro-genetic disorder characterized by intellectual and developmental delay with frequent laughter or smiling during a usually happy demeanor.

The actor opened up about his son's condition recently while appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where he shared the doctor spotted the condition in part because of James' fascination with water, explaining:

"The doctor saw him one day and said, 'Is he always this happy … and does he always kind of flap his arms like that? And we said, 'Yes.' And he said, 'And how does he feel about water?' and we said, 'Oh, water's fascinating (to him).' He went, 'Has he been tested for Angelman Syndrome?' We didn't know what that was."

Those diagnosed with AS frequently flap their hands and love to be around water. According to Farrell, his son "is kind of obsessed with water." He continued to elaborate, saying:

"He's not a great swimmer but he just loves being close to it and in and around it. It's one of the characteristics of the condition that he has."

Although there is no cure for the condition yet, researchers say they are close to discovering it. For now, Farrell doesn't seem to have too many complaints, as he told Ellen:

"If James gets upset at home I can get a pot and put some water in it. It's really beautiful because water is such a pure element … there's something really profound about it."

Ellen And Colin Farrell Scare People In A Bathroom!

| Filed under: Ellen DeGeneresColin Farrell


Ahhh, but what we would give to have Colin Farrell jump out and scare us anywhere! Ha!

In honor of Colin Farrell's new movie — the remake of Fright Night from the 80's — he and Ellen teamed up for a HIGHlarious round of Bathroom Vampire, where they just dressed up like vampires and scared people who wanted to use the bathroom.

So funny!

But, isn't that a dangerous place to scare someone, you know, because of what they're going in there to do in the first place!

Fright Night Trailer Is Here!

| Filed under: Film FlickersColin Farrell

Looks great!

We around here think this movie has been perfectly casted. We're huge fans of Anton Yelchin's budding career, and Colin Farrell emits the kind of vampirism that vampires should: scary, unnerving, highly sexual, insatiable. It really is great to see a movie taking the vampire back to the original intended form!

Not only that, but as a remake it still looks solid. The original is one that can stand the test of time, though!

Check it out above, and let us know how U feel about it!

More Pics From Fright Night!

| Filed under: Film FlickersColin FarrellPhotos!


We've always known that Colin Farrell is on fire, but hot damn! Literally!

Check out another slew of promotional images (above and below) from the upcoming revamp of the '80s classic, Fright Night, which stars Anton Yelchin as a teenager who realizes that his mysterious next-door neighbor (Farrell) who has begun courting his mother, played by Toni Collette, may very well be a vampire!

Looks pretty intense! And by the looks of it, we imagine Toni's character figures out pretty early on that her new man wants to eat her!


What do U think?? Will U be checking out Fright Night??

It's Date Night For Colin Farrell And His Lady!

| Filed under: Love LineColin FarrellPhotos!


Colin Farrell looks like he's had a rough night!

But that didn't stop him from taking his lady Alicja Bachleda on a date!

The couple took some time out of their busy schedule, sans baby, and dined at Fogo De Chao Steakhouse in El Lady on Saturday night.

It's always a good idea for a couple to get some alone time to rekindle those sparks.

Hope you had fun!

Kate Beckinsale Offered Role In Underworld 5 Total Recall Remake

| Filed under: Film FlickersSharon StoneColin FarrellKate BeckinsaleBusiness Blitz

kate beckinsale offered role in total recall remake

She should totally take this role! Mutants instead of vampires would be a good change of pace for her…

Earlier this month, we weren't overly enthused to hear that Kate Beckinsale had started production on a fourth Underworld film, although we were glad to hear that she was working!

Now, Kate's been given a chance to expand her horizons! She's been offered a female lead role opposite Colin Farrell in Sony Pictures' Total Recall remake.

If she signs on to the project, she'll be starring in the role of Lori, who was previously played by Sharon Stone in the original version.

Given the fact that the film's director Len Wiseman previously directed Kate in two Underworld movies AND since he's her husband, we're thinking she'll probs attach herself to this project sooner than later.

Would U like to see Kate Beckinsale in the Total Recall remake?

New Stills From Fright Night!

| Filed under: Yummy Yummy ScrewFilm FlickersColin Farrell


The latest horror movie remake on its way out is a revamp of the 80s classic Fright Night, which will now star Star Trek hottie Anton Yelchin as a teen who begins to suspect that his next-door neighbor, played by the all-around hottie Colin Farrell, is a vampire! We're guessing that a lot of screams and violence ensue.

Anyway, check out some just-released promotional stills from the movie, which confirm that yes, Colin is a vampire, as well as show off two of Yelchin's classmates, 28 Weeks Later's Imogen Poots and Superbad's Christopher Mintz-Plasse (above)!

Wow! This actually looks as though it could be good!

We're a little interested in checking this one out now!

What do U think?? Will U go see Fright Night?
