Colin Farrell He’s won his second Golden Globe for ‘Inisherines Banshee,’ then he won again in 2009 for his work in ‘Hiding in Bruges,’ a McDonagh film, but the truth is The Actor Wasn’t Always Well RecognizedAnd the release of Oliver Stone’s epic ‘Alexander the Great’ hasn’t been a great experience.
