Colin Farrell Met an Old Co-star For a Touching Reason
Recently, Colin Farrell met with an old co-star, Shea Whigham, to remember the late director, Joel Schumacher. The two co-stars got their big breaks in Schumacher’s 2000 film, Tigerland.
After doing many small roles, Colin Farrell bagged the lead role in Tigerland.
In 2000, Joel Schumacher directed the war drama, Tigerland. The story revolves around the soldiers in a training camp preparing for the Vietnam war. During the mid-60s and early 70s, Tigerland was a US Army training camp. Located in Louisiana, the camp mimicked the muggy and humid conditions of Vietnam. While Colin Farrell played the lead, other cast members included Matthew Davis, Clifton Collins Jr., Tom Guiry, Shea Whigham, and Michael Shannon. At the time of its release, the film received positive reviews but could not do good business on the box office.
Recently, the co-stars of Tigerland met to reminisce about the good memories of the past.
A few days back, Colin Farrell and Shea Whigham were seen hanging out in LA. Significantly, the meeting between the two co-stars came after the death of Joel Schumacher. After battling cancer for a year, Schumacher passed away on Monday at the age of 80. Colin Farrell and Shea Whigham seemed to recall the memories of their time on the sets of Tigerland. The film launched their careers. After Tigerland, Colin Farrell also starred in Joel Schumacher’s Phone Booth. Other superhit films directed by Schumacher are The Phantom of the Opera, St. Elmo’s Fire, The Client, The Lost Boys, Flatliners, and Batman films. Meanwhile, Shea Whigham has appeared in films like Pride and Glory, Take Shelter, Silver Linings Playbook, and Fast and Furious films. Despite the strict rules about COVID-19, Colin Farrell and Shea Whigham seemed relaxed and enjoyed a coffee while chatting. While the details of their meeting are unknown, they might be talking about their beloved director.
