Colin Farrell is completely mortified by all of his bad haircuts - but what about True Detective season 2?

Colin Farrell is completely mortified by all of his bad haircuts - but what about True Detective season 2?
Colin Farrell is fully aware that he's had "some of the worst hairdos" in film during his long career.

The Irish actor was visited by the Ghost of Hairdos Past while on The Graham Norton Show - and, trust us, these cuts are pretty epic.

"Empire magazine did the top ten worst hairdos in film. I'm definitely three of those," he joked while looking back through his past styles.

We all remember that the Horrible Bosses comb-over was pretty frightening, but watch the clip above to see some other hair-rising 'dos from A Home at the End of the World, Alexander and more.

Don't worry, Colin. We forgive you for these fashion faux pas - but we're still not over True Detective season two.

Check out the full interview - including some chat about Daniel Craig's "really big one" - on The Graham Norton Show, airing tonight at 10.35pm on BBC One.

Lukewarm Off Presses: Colin, Emma, Birdman and Thor

You might have thought you were done discussing these but I'm just getting around to posting about them, so don't shut your trap just yet. Here's five stories that we didn't get to in anything like a timely fashion but so what? Time is a flat circle.

Story 1 Colin In Talks

I was going to wait to post about this until it was official and not just "in talks" but since the internet moves with the speed of everything casually mentioned as fact that everyone is aware of and will be old tomorrow, it should be noted that it looks like Colin Farrell will be the leading man of True Detective Season 2 (possibly Taylor Kitsch beside him). Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey will be tough shoes to fill but as I relayed on twitter, he's a smart idea because people will be surprised when he's great because they haven't noticed that he often is.

Cunningham's previous film credits include the Colin Farrell drama A Home at the End of the World and Evening.

The Good House is to be Streep and De Niro's fourth film collaboration.

Together Again
Oscar voters, take note: Meryl Street and Robert De Niro will join forces for the fourth time with an adaptation of the best-selling Ann Leary novel "The Good House."

The dark comedy will find Streep taking on the lead role of real-estate agent Hildy Good, a barely recovering alcoholic whose harmonious life unravels when she embarks on a new friendship and rekindles an old flame (De Niro). FilmNation and Tribeca Productions will head up "House," according to a joint press released Tuesday.

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Cunningham ("The Hours," "A Home at the End of the World') will adapt the novel, marking the third time Streep has taken a role in one of Cunningham's works. (In addition to the source material for "Hours," the author wrote the script for 2007's "Evening.")

Robert De Niro & Meryl Streep Reteam And Move Into 'The Good House'

While they already have the classic "The Deer Hunter," the underrated "Falling In Love," and the tough indie "Marvin's Room" under their belt, it has been seventeen years since Robert De Niro and Meryl Streep last graced the big screen together. But it looks like we won't have to wait much longer for another movie with the legendary pair as they've got a new project lined up. De Niro and Streep are now both attached to star in the adaptation of the recently published and critically acclaimed book "The Good House" by Ann Leary. Michael Cunningham ("The Hours," "A Home At The End Of The World") will adapt the book, a dramedy that tells the story of a recovering alcoholic finding love once again. Here's the synopsis: The Good House is a wickedly funny look at denial, told through the eyes of Hildy Good (Streep), a New England realtor and

Top 100 Greatest Gay Movies

  • The Backlot
Brace yourselves. This list of the Top 100 Greatest Gay Movies is probably going to generate some howls of protest thanks to a rather major upset in the rankings. Frankly, one that surprised the hell out of us here at AfterElton.

But before we get to that, an introduction. A few weeks ago we asked AfterElton readers to submit up to ten of their favorite films by write-in vote. We conducted a similar poll several years ago, but a lot has happened culturally since then, and a number of worthy movies of gay interest have been released. We wanted to see how your list of favorites had changed.

We also wanted to expand our list to 100 from the top 50 we had done previously. We figured there were finally enough quality gay films to justify the expansion. And we wanted to break out gay documentaries onto their own list (You'll find the

Do Mainstream Gay Movies Have to be Set in the Past to Get Made?

Take a look at this list of the top-grossing or most visible gay and bisexual movies of the last ten years: Brokeback Mountain, Milk, Capote, Taking Woodstock, A Home at the End of the World, Howl, Far From Heaven, The Hours, Little Ashes, Brideshead Revisited, I Love You Phillip Morris, Kinsey, and A Single Man.

Notice anything that they all have in common – other than the fact that most of them are quite good?

They're all set in the past – as is J. Edgar, an upcoming movie directed by Clint Eastwood and written by Dustin Lance Black that is getting considerable buzz, and the upcoming James Franco movie, The Broken Tower.

Meanwhile, over the same period, many of the TV movies that have made the biggest impression – Prayers for Bobby, Pedro, An Englishman in New York – have also been set in the past.

What's that about?

Green Day's 'American Idiot' (and Billie Joe!) to Jump from Broadway to Big Screen

Update: Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong indeed will be playing the pivotal role of St. Jimmy in the film adaptation of the Broadway musical, "American Idiot," THR reports. He occassionally guest-starred in the part on stage.

--------------

Can you still be "punk" if you're concept album launched a Broadway musical and is being adapted by the guy who wrote "Milk" into a feature film? Probably not -- but that isn't a concern for Green Day, the rock band that formed in the '80s and has evolved into a full-on media empire since.

Welcome to paradise, indeed.

Green Day's recent foray into the musical theater world, "American Idiot," has been picked up by Universal for the cinematic treatment, according to Deadline.

At the wheels of the project are Dustin Lance Black, creator of "Big Love" and Oscar-winner for his "Milk" screenplay, and original stage director Michael Mayer, who

Dustin Lance Black Becomes an ‘American Idiot’ For Universal

It was inevitable that a movie studio would pick up the highly successful Broadway musical based on the highly successful compact disc put out by band Green Day. It’s fitting that it would be Universal to option American Idiot considering their growing interest in musical storytelling – or at least their proposed future in interest in telling stories like Les Miserable and Wicked. Deadline Neches is reporting that the studio has hired Dustin Lance Black (Milk, J. Edgar) to write his first screenplay that doesn’t involve real-life political figures. His skill is unmistakable though, and his political experience will help color this story about three small-town guys despairing at their suburban existence through pop-punk. I, for one, welcome the adaptation because it’s high time a screen musical involved shooting up heroin. Universal has also signed Michael Mayer to direct the film, which is an interesting choice. His Tony-winning, Broadway
