SAN DIEGO (AP) — Colin Farrell plays a vampire in his latest film, but he says almost any role will do: He just loves being an actor.
The 35-year-old opened up during a panel featuring the update of “Fright Night” Friday at San Diego Comic-Con.
When a fan asked whether he preferred his earlier starring roles or his more recent character parts, Farrell said that in the last six years, he “reconnected with the mystery of the whole thing and the imagination of the whole thing and how much fun it is to be an actor.”
He plays the vampire-next-door Jerry Dandrige in “Fright Night,” a reimagining of the 1985 horror classic that’s set for release Aug. 19.
