Farrell up for 'Vice' role
14 October 2004

Irish screen star Colin Farrell is in line to play the part of Detective James "Sonny" Crockett in the movie of the 1980s cop classic, Miami Vice.

Universal is in talks with Farrell and Jamie Foxx, who is being targeted to play Detective Ricardo Tubbs, according to Hollywood trade paper, Variety.

The film could even pave the way for the show to return to the small screen.

Miami Vice followed the lives of the two detectives from the Miami Police Department's vice squad.

Crockett lives on a boat, guarded by his alligator Elvis.

His partner Tubbs is a New York police officer, who travelled to Florida in search of his brother's killer.

Between them, they take on Miami's drug gangs.

The original show was also known for being one step ahead of 1980s fashions and music.

Farrell, 28, was born in Castleknock, Dublin.

That's a bad idea.

Well..i thought that at first too...but the original creator of it..Michael (Last of the Mohicans, Heat, Thief, Manhunter and Collateral) Mann is doing it, so it has alot of potential.......This could be great....plus, Colin Farrell looks a little like a young Don Johnson.....Crockett and Tubbs are coming back baby!!
