His uncle, Tommy Farrell, also played for Shamrock Rovers. Farrell unsuccessfully auditioned for the Irish music group Boyzone around this time. Farrell attended the Gaiety School of Acting and dropped out when he was cast in the part of Danny Byrne on Ballykissangel, a BBC television drama that centres around a young English priest who becomes a part of a rural community in Ireland. in 2000, he was cast in the lead role of Private Roland Bozz in Tigerland, a “powerful but hardly released” film (according to movie critic Roger Ebert) directed by the American Joel Schumacher. Matt Damon was originally offered the Minority Report role but he turned it down to appear in Ocean’s Eleven. Farrell had to read into Frank Miller’s Daredevil comics to understand Bullseye “because the expression on the character’s faces in the comic books, and just the way they move sometimes, and the exaggerations of the character I’m playing he’s so over-the-top that you do draw from that. in 2004, Farrell appeared in several independent films that received only a limited theatrical release in most countries, including A Home at the End of the World, for which Ebert once again praised Farrell, saying that he was “astonishing in the movie, not least because the character is such a departure from everything he has done before”. The effort is there, but it’s a performance you end up rooting for rather than enjoying, because there’s no way to just relax and watch.” Farrell appeared in the title role of Alexander the Great in Oliver Stone’s 2004 biographical film Alexander, which, while receiving some favourable reviews internationally, was poorly received in the United States.
