Colin Farrell has said that fellow Irish actor and The Batman co-star Barry Keoghan is “an extraordinary human being.”

In an interview on RTE 2fm with Stephen Byrne, Farrell said he loves Keoghan.

Speaking of Barry in the interview Colin said, “I love Barry, and I just think he’s a cracking young fella…”

“He’s magic, he’s just a cracking young man and I just wish him the best, apart from being an extraordinary actor, there’s a lot of extraordinary actors in the world and Barry is one of them.”

“But he’s an extraordinary human being and I just have such hopes for him and the meaning and peace of mind and sense of adventure that he will be able to live in for the rest of his days,” he said.

“I love him to bits.”

The pair are currently both appearing in The Batman and recently filmed The Banshees of Inisherin together with Brendan Gleeson.

“We worked on Martin McDonagh’s film out west there last year.”

Farrell opened up about what it was like living with the 29-year-old during filming.

“It was great, we lived together for a while… I mean I wouldn’t be sharing digs with him for too long, it was a bit of a mess when you go in in the morning and there were knives on the floor with butter on it and crumbs everywhere, teabags in the sink and all that shite…” he said.

“It was actually great, it was a bit like MTV’s The Real World.”

Barry has recently set his sights on the role of James Bond.

The Hollywood star took to Twitter to share a slew of toned up snaps with the caption “Bond who?”

Daniel Craig recently left the highly sought after role playing the famous spy after 15 years following the release of No Time To Die in 2021.

Actors tipped for the role include Idris Elba, Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy and Henry Cavill.

And now Barry Keoghan has thrown his hat in the ring.

Keoghan would not be the first Irish Bond star, Navan man Pierce Brosnan played 007 from 2005 to 2015.
