Colin Farrell Enamored by 'Dumbo' Director Tim Burton: He 'transports me'
Co-stars Colin Farrell, Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins discuss the magic behind their upcoming film, "Dumbo." Farrell reveals the reason he took on the role. "Tim Burton, just to work with someone who is such an extraordinarily gifted and imaginative visualist, and who has always, since I saw 'Pee Wee's Big Adventure' the first time when I was 12 or 13. And then 'Beetlejuice'... 'Edward Scissorhands,' the list, it goes on and on and he's always been someone that transports me. I'm a film lover before an actor, and will go to the grave as a film lover for longer than I could ever be an actor. And so, I remember Tim being a big part of my life... and to go and see him on a set and see how creative every cell in his body, I swear to God, [he] vibrates with creative energy," says Farrell. "He's so animated and he's so invested in the process... It's so beautiful to go to work with him." Full interview to air on "The Talk" to air Friday March 29.
