Movie wildman Colin Farrell nearly became a member of boyband BOYZONE - but was cast aside when frontman Ronan Keating voiced concern about his unhealthy lifestyle.

The Phone Booth actor, 27, auditioned to join the clean-cut Irish group in the mid-nineties, but was no longer considered when his taste for excess became apparent.

Manager LOUIS WALSH says, "Colin looked the part, even if he couldn't sing at all well.

"But Ronan said to me, 'Don't give him the gig. If you do, he'll cause problems.' He thought Colin would take over the band."

Boyzone split in 2000.
