fubar gets mention in new SWAT movie!

Yes! It’s true! Apparently Colin Farrell has been a long time fan of my site and as a thank you for me having him up on my layout a while back, he got director Clark Johnson (the director of SWAT) to CGI in a little shoutout to the site (in honor of its recent resurrection) on a sewer wall in the movie!

Here are some screenshots!


And now, an e-mail.

Not from Colin unfortunately.

TETE-A-FETE Farrell nuzzles his ”Recruit” costar Bridget Moynahan at the film’s Jan. 2003 premiere. Is she happy, or is that the most polite smile you’ve ever seen?

MAGNIFICENT SEVENS He may cut a fine figure, but the Dublin-born actor doesn’t work at it. ”The closest thing I have to a nutritionist is the Carslberg Beer Co.,” he’s said. ”I have the appetite of a pigeon. I get bored eating one course after another”.

NOT THAT INNOCENT Though Britney Spears was the 27-year-old actor’s date for the premiere of ”The Recruit,” he insisted, ”We’re just mates and we’re not dating.” Wonder if he smooches all his mates, as he reportedly did with Spears.

SCRUFF AND READY Some use product to get that messy look, and some, like Farrell, claim to just roll out of bed. ”There are a lot of people who make an effort to look as if they’re dressing down. I just dress down”.

DIRTY BOYS ”Tigerland,” a Vietnam War film by Joel Schumacher, made just $140,000 at the box office, but that didn’t stop Hollywood from buzzing about Farrell (seen here with costar Matthew Davis), who earned critical kudos for his uncanny Texas accent.

YELL RAISER He may be Hollywood’s heartthrob du jour, but the Dublin born actor couldn’t care less. ”It doesn’t piss me off,” he’s said of his hottie status. ”But it doesn’t make me horny, either”.

RISING GUN Farrell demonstrates one way to catch a subway train in ‘S.W.A.T.,” a reworking of the short-lived 1975 TV series starring Robert Urich. The action thriller opens Aug. 8.

IRISH HIGHS In Dublin for June’s 11th annual Special Olympic World Summer Games, Farrell said Ireland is never far from his heart. ”If I were doing films that I didn’t like, I’d probably pack my bags, go home to Ireland, and open a pub.” We bet.

  2. I’m actually starting to think Colin Farrell might be gay…I still think most of those pictures make him look really homosexual.

    BTW- I think he was winking at you, Justin.

  4. How did you find out about the FUBAR thing in the movie? I have been following for about a year and a half now, and I was just wondering.

  5. Colin Farrell doesn’t visit this site.

    At least, I don’t believe he does.

  6. I doubt COlin Farrell reads this site. My guess is that he’s to obusy banging Brittney Spears, and posing for semi-gay layouts to spend time on this site.

    No offense intended.

  7. I think Justin was being sarcastic. But then again, it’s kind of hard to tell whether someone IS being sarcastic on-line.

  9. I thought Samuel Jackson was the fan?

    Don’t you think he’ll be hurt that you credited his "shout out" to Farrell?
