Irish-born Hollywood actor Colin Farrell has had enough of the on-camera cinematic scene and now wants to pursue voice acting in an animated film geared toward children. Do you have any advice for Colin on how to get the gig?

The only trouble is no one has called his agent yet.

Colin says, "I'd really like to do an animated film next but no one is calling me to do one."

It appears that even celebrity can't get you everything. It still takes hard work, perseverance, and talent.

Public image, with all things considered, may play a role in all of this, too.

Do you have any advice that you could give the aspiring voice actor Colin Farrell?

Any comments?

    You can't be serious? I'm sure Colin will have an abundance of offers from HUGE animated films and that he will be cast without an audition. I live in LA. This is the way it works. To think that he is going to have to "work" his way up in the VO community is naive at best. That said, I wish him well.
