Even though Fright Night star Colin Farrell doesn’t quite see himself as our beloved Twilight vampire, he is just as dreamy. A few journalists were on the set during film and asked Farrell about his character, Jerry, a vampire who doesn’t have an ounce of romance in his lonely-ass body (or corpse).
Jerry’s not searching the world for his counterpart; Homeboy’s just trying to find a good meal with as little resistance as possible. Farrell explained to Fear Net, “He’s just, as I say to Christopher Mintz-Plasse’s character in the film, yeah he’s not romantic. He’s not Edward Cullen, he’s not Dracula, he says he’s Jaws, he’s just fucking Jaws. He eats, he eats, then he moves on. And I don’t know how old, who knows. Like in the film he’s four hundred years old, so I think he’s probably also a little bit bored, a little bit lonely but just doesn’t have those romantic illusions like the other characters have.”
Farrell didn’t bother to button his shirt up all the way yesterday outside The Late Show With David Letterman, but I’m OK with it. What I’m not OK with are the dangly earrings. Really?
