Farrell Happy To Fail Boyzone Audition

Subscribe to Colin Farrell alerts

Hollywood actor Colin Farrell is glad he failed an audition for Irish pop group Boyzone - because he wouldn't have "lasted too long" in the band.
Farrell tried out for the boyband in the 1990s while he was a struggling actor in Ireland, but he was rejected during the audition phases for his lack of vocal talent.
Boyzone went on to score a string of chart successes in the U.K., returning last year (07) for a reunion tour.
Farrell eventually landed a role in British drama series Ballykissangel in 1998 and went on to forge a high profile career in Hollywood.
And the star admits he is pleased he was never accepted into Boyzone - because it would have sent his life off on a very different path.
He says, "I don't think I would have lasted in the band too long. Life would have been very different, very different.
"I certainly wouldn't have lasted a reunion I don't think."
