Colin Farrell is totally unrecognisable as he’s seen on set of The Batman spin-off

Oscar-nominee Colin Farrell looked completely unrecognisable in snaps from the set of The Batman spin-off TV series, The Penguin.

Reprising his role as Oswald Cobblepot, or the titular Penguin, Colin, 46, donned a number of prosthetics on his face just as he did in in the 2022 film starring Robert Pattinson.

The prosthetics gave the actor the appearance of facial scars and a receding hairline, and made him look heavier than his usual slim figure.

Dressed for the role, Colin sported a purple blazer and white shirt, which were paired with black trousers and matching suspenders. The look was completed with a pair of black shoes and a brown leather coat.

Not much is known about the storyline of the TV series, but it's believed to pick up where The Batman ended, with the city of Gotham thrown into chaos following the death of crime boss Carmine Falcone.

The Penguin will consist of eight episodes, and it remains unclear when the show will release.

It comes after Colin received an Oscar nomination for Best Actor for his role in 2022's The Banshees Of Inisherin.

This is the first time Oscar nomination for the veteran actor. OddsChecker currently has him as third favourite to win, with Austin Butler and Brendan Fraser ahead of him.

And while Colin missed out on the BAFTA, which went to Austin for his role as Elvis Presley instead, he did receive the Golden Globe award for Best Actor In A Comedy Or Musical.

Over the years, Colin has excelled in a variety of genres. He’s starred in action films such as Minority Report, dramas like Saving Mr Banks, comedies such as Horrible Bosses and Yorgos Lanthimos’ dark romance hit The Lobster.

Following his Gold Globe win, the actor opened up about what he thinks his legacy may be.

He revealed that he will always want to work on projects that will continue to entertain people and says the legacy will then take care of itself.

He admits: “You want to do good stuff. I mean, we all know that when you’re going to work, you’re sometimes going to work for entertainment and the money might be a bit better or whatever. But then you go to work to satisfy your own curiosity.

“Whatever the reason, you have an understanding. Whatever the gig is, if it’s made for purely entertainment purposes or for some greater intellectual or social provocation, you just want to make something where people don’t waste an hour and a half or two hours of their lives.

“If you do that and if you live as authentically as you can in your life and in your art, then the legacy will take care of itself. Your legacy is to do with the friendships and the people that you’ve met and the people you’ve touched.

“One of my kids was thinking about fame a while back. We were talking about it and he was like, “It’s weird, Dad. In 100 years, nobody will remember anything you’ve done.” And I was like: “Maybe 150 years, you know?” But you can’t be concerned too much with that. Live in the present.”
