Colin Farrell and Ozzy OsbourneFormer Irish hell-raiser, Colin Farrell, could soon become the Prince of Darkness as he has reportedly agreed to star as Ozzy Osbourne in a upcoming biopic of the rock legend's life.

Apparently, the 61-year-old Black Sabbath frontman had hoped that an unknown actor from his home city of Birmingham would take on the role, but the ever-so reliable Perez Hilton reports that Farrell has already signed on for the part.

A source, apparently from Paramount Pictures and MTV Film, revealed: "At least Colin and Ozzy are on the same page when it comes to using four-letter words! Colin drinks, he smokes, he womanises. He's just a sleeve tattoo away from being a real rock star."

The rock legend had stated recently that he thought an actor from the Midlands would be his preferred choice to play him in his younger years.

"I'd like to get a Birmingham guy to play the young lad in it because Americans can't do a good Brummie accent," he said. "I don't want a Johnny Depp or someone from the Hobbit films. I'd like to do something like an X Factor audition, but Sharon does all that kind of thing, you know."

In other Ozzy movie related news, the Prince of Darkness' wife, Sharon, recently responded to a question regarding whether her daughter Kelly would get to play herself in the movie with, "she'll have to audition for it." Cheers mum!
