Colin Farrell is a shrewd investor

Colin Farrell should maybe give up on buying real estate and just start risking all of his money in Vegas. From Contact Music:

Colin Farrell has lost more than $5.6 million in investments following the property market crash in his native Ireland, according to a U.K. report.

The Phone Booth star, who divides his time between homes in Los Angeles and Dublin, Ireland, reportedly invested more than $10.4 million in 14 properties in the Irish capital between 2004 and 2007. However, house prices have fallen by more than 50 per cent in some parts of Dublin in recent months, and the star’s property portfolio has dropped in value to around $4.8 million, according to Britain’s The Sunday Times.

This really isn’t surprising when you consider that Colin is the same guy who thought that playing second fiddle to Ben Affleck in Daredevil – Marvel’s shittiest movie to date — was a good career move. It’s rumored that some actors actually turned that role down to go into gay porn — and I don’t mean as the top. Of course that genius lost his cash. Unless lightning strikes twice for Colin, don’t expect to see him until the next Howard the Duck reboot.
