Colin Firth Plays A Golfer In His Next Movie, But Golf Totally Isn't For Him!

colin firth golfer sport not for him funny movie film role

It's pretty impressive that Colin Firth chose a role involving a sport he knew NOTHING about!

That's right! Even though he had no idea how to play golf and quickly found out that golf what's the sport for him, he delivered his performance anyway! We bet his awkwardness with it doesn't even shine through, though! THAT's a professional actor!

LOLz!

Here's what he said about it:

"I had never watched a single golf swing in my life, so it was a foreign language to me. I have enough weaknesses without needing another. I have seen what's happened to friends of mine getting lost in golf. I could see when it sounds sweet when you hit it actually becoming an addiction. There is something that happens; there's a thrill that runs through you and it works.

"There's an indoor driving range in London and so, because I didn't have to be seen in the film playing a whole game of golf, just a few swings, I tried to get some lessons and I never got further than hitting a small object 300 yards."

Ha! He can't even call it a golf ball! That's how much he doesn't like it!

In the flick, Arthur Newman, he plays a man who fakes his own death and starts anew as a golf pro.

We're in… though, maybe he should stick to My Fair Lady next time!
