Farrell is currently shooting the second season of the HBO drama “True Detective” starring opposite Rachel McAdams and Vince Vaughan and recently wrapped the independent film “The Lobster” starring with Rachel Weisz. Farrell’s recent credits include “Miss Julie” and the Disney film “Saving Mr. Banks.” In 2009, Farrell won a Golden Globe for his role in​“In Bruges.”
