Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeDearBoy: He played Harry Hart in ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'' because it gave him the chance to play a suave, James Bond-type action hero in an absolutely balls-to-the-wall comedy that hangs a lampshade on practically every spy-movie trope.


Added DiffLines:

* PlayingAgainstType: He plays a [[spoiler:manipulative, abusive psychopath villain]] in ''Film/BeforeIGoToSleep''.
* PlayingWithCharacterType: Before ''Kingsman'', Firth's best known work was playing upperclass and polite gentleman characters in ''Bridget Jones''-esque rom-com films, with the main exception being an Roman soldier role in the lesser-known epic film ''Film/TheLastLegion''. As Harry Hart in ''Kingsman'', he retains a slightly more vulgar version of his upperclass politeness, but kicks a ''lot'' more ass while doing so.
* TypeCasting: Not so much since he started winning Oscars, but even a quick glance at his filmography before that (and even several after) reveals a significant number of roles that have shared more than a few things in common with [[Literature/PrideAndPrejudice a certain pompous but ultimately good-hearted upper-class gentleman from Derbyshire]].
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: He was originally cast as the voice of Literature/PaddingtonBear for the LiveActionAdaptation. However, after recording his lines, both he and the producers came to the mutual conclusion that his voice wasn't the right fit for the character, and he ended up being replaced by Creator/BenWhishaw instead. This was somewhat awkward as there had already been posters printed out and distributed with Colin's name on them. However, there were no trailers featuring Colin's voice.

Colin Andrew Firth [[UsefulNotes/KnightFever CBE]] (born September 10, 1960) is a handsome British actor known for his ability in both comedy and drama (and for being very [[RuleOfThree handsome]]). After a youthful career of small roles, fame finally arrived following his performance as Mr. Darcy in the acclaimed 1995 BBC miniseries based on Creator/JaneAusten's ''Literature/PrideAndPrejudice'', which made women swoon all over the world. Some notable supporting roles in films were to follow, including ''Film/TheEnglishPatient'' and ''Film/ShakespeareInLove'', both of which featured the rare event of his character losing in a love triangle (to one of the Fiennes brothers, in each case; perhaps they're his kryptonite). Real film stardom came with 2001's ''[[Literature/BridgetJones Bridget Jones's Diary]]'', where he basically reprised his role as Mr. Darcy for the 21st century. In the following decade, Firth became a fixture of both romantic comedies and some smaller, more serious films. By the end of the decade, he had decisively established himself as a serious actor, with an UsefulNotes/AcademyAward nomination for ''Literature/ASingleMan'' and widespread acclaim for his work as King George VI in ''TheKingsSpeech'' which earned him the UsefulNotes/AcademyAward for Best Actor, as well as just about every other major acting award.
