Colin Farrell Hired Dialect Coach to Impress Ray Winston
Colin Farrell was so determined to impress British hardman Ray Winstone with his Cockney accent in new movie "London Boulevard", he hired a dialect coach. The Irish actor plays a criminal recently released from jail in the film, opposite Winstone and Keira Knightley, and he went to great lengths to ensure his East London accent was just right for the role.
He tells Britain's Sunday Mirror, "I had a great dialect coach who came to my house in Los Angeles every day. I'm happy with the way it turned out but it was intimidating doing it in front of Ray. You can't get more Cockney than him. He's a sweetheart and we do get on - but I do find him a bit scary."
"London Boulevard" is scheduled to hit limited theaters in the U.S. in February 2011. Beside starring Farrell, Winstone and Knightley, the William Monahan-directed movie also sees Eddie Marsan, Stephen Graham, David Thewlis, Anna Friel and Jamie Campbell Bower.
