‘Outlaws’ horse around

Farrell touted as leader by pic's helmer

“Yeehaws” and “yippies” shot out from the overbooked crowd at the Mann Village Theater and table dancing cowgirls pulled their pistols on patrons at the Sky Bar afterparty as Warner Bros. and Morgan Creek tried hard to make Tuesday’s preem for “American Outlaws” as rambunctious as their new Jesse James biopic.

James G. Robinson, president of Morgan Creek and pic’s producer said, “I love making Westerns because it’s just Americana; everyone seems to be having a good time.”

How rowdy was the actual Austin, Texas, shoot? “It was deadly,” said pic’s star, Irish up-and-comer Colin Farrell. “We had a blast, drinking every night, but working hard everyday.”

Director Les Mayfield credits Farrell for keeping the boys in line. “You could have a very difficult movie with seven very strong male actors. But just as his character did in the movie, Colin led the actors — he set the tone and everybody showed up on time.”

Partygoers included stars Kathy Bates, Timothy Dalton, Gabriel Macht, Scott Caan, Will McCormack and Gregory Smith; producers Bill Gerber and Jonathan A. Zimbert, WB exec Dan Fellman, and guests David Alan Grier, Andrew Keegan and “Survivor’s” Kelly Wiglesworth.
