Actor Colin Farrel fell into a scary prank
After working with the actor for a week, anti-drug agents invited him to make a deal with Colombian suppliers for a large amount of cocaine. Farrell was sure that everything would go well because they had established a good relationship with the criminals.
Everything seemed to be going really well when, suddenly, one of the Colombians drew a gun and, pointing at Farrell, questioned whether he was a police officer. The actor, very frightened, even tore his shirt to prove he wasn’t wearing a bug.
THE video of the joke was included as bonus material on the. Thinking about the joke, the actor reveals that it was “very, very scary”. He also said that he had trouble sleeping that night.
The initial idea was to never tell Farrell that the deal was false. However, he was so shaken that the production soon decided to reveal that it was a joke.
