Colin Farrell made EW’s Power List

Age 27

There are lots of roles out there for leading men under the age of 30. But you can count the number of studs who’ve been in three box office hits (”S.W.A.T.,” ”Daredevil,” ”The Recruit”) in one year on one finger. The point being that studios consider Mr. Farrell a rare commodity: a young actor with a high mainstream profile (although sometimes too high) and obvious screen charisma. That combination worked nicely for a certain Russell Crowe, and next year this Irishman may get his own ”Gladiator” with Oliver Stone’s ”Alexander.”
