Colin Farrell talks about playing cokehead Bobby Pellitt in Horrible Bosses

Colin Farrell: O, man, it was just fun on the page. It was the one thing that stands out over twelve years of reading scripts. It was laugh out load, you know. I did kind of go for a belly laugh about four or five times on my own in the character room, which doesn't happen very often when reading comedies, I've found. Through the years I just hadn't found that many of them that funny and this was, yeah, it was kind of crass. And it was without apology and at the same time there was some really well observed behavioral stuff. And it was nicely topical. And, you know, it was fun. It was fun more than anything. So continuing from the enjoyments I had reading it, then getting involved, meeting Seth and designing the character Bobby Pellitt has been a riot.

I play the son of Jason Sudeikis' boss, who's played by Donald Sutherland. Who is nothing if not benevolent and incredibly kind and unfortunately very dead after the first scene. And then I take over the reigns. And it's particularly the relationship between Jason's character Kurt and Donald Sutherland as my father that has caused me personally so much consternation over the years. So when my dad is out of the picture and I take over the reigns of the company it's one of those classic cases of the sun is gonna, it's all gonna burn really fast.
