It is being reported today that Colin Farrell has been admitted into rehab for

"exhaustion and dependency on prescription medication," but leave it to local Montreal news website Cyberpresse to reveal the real details of Farrell's little rehab stint. The report is in French, so here is my translation (and a good one, if I do say so myself):

L'acteur irlandais Colin Farrel a été victime d'une overdose vendredi lors du tournage en Uruguay du film tiré de la série télévisée Miami Vice, rapporte lundi une radio locale. L'équipe des urgences médicale, qui a examiné l'acteur, a retrouvé dans son sang des traces de cocaïne, de majijuana et d'une autre drogue qui n'a pu être identifiée, a indiqué la radio Sarandi.

Irish actor Colin Farrell was the victim of an overdose Friday, during shooting in Uruguay for the film based on TV series, Miami Vice, reported a local radio station, Monday. The emergency medical team, who examined the actor, found traces in his blood of cocaine, marijuana, and another drug which could not be identified, indicated radio Sarandi.

Of course, he probably couldn't have picked a better time to enter rehab, since this is going to generate massive publicity for his new film The New World, and now he doesn't have to do all those incessant press junkets and talk show interviews.
