Can’t get enough of Colin Firth these days? Neither can we! The 50-year-old English thespian just took home a Best Actor Golden Globe on Sunday (January 16) for his portrayal of a stuttering King George VI in The King’s Speech. The critically-acclaimed drama also grabbed a whopping 14 BAFTA nominations this week.
But is Firth entertaining the idea of reprising his role as the meek Mark Darcy in a third Bridget Jones flick? According to the Chicago Sun-Times, he informed Glare that he sort of fancies the idea of seeing Darcy as a doting dad. Firth has allegedly discussed the idea with the studio who did the previous two films — 2001’s Bridget Jones’ Diary and its sequel, 2004’s Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason — and the “enthusiasm” is there. Yay!
“…I’m excited about a third film because now Bridget and Mr. Darcy are a bit older.” Firth said. “They’re different people from the second film, and the plot would most likely revolve around them being married and having kids.”
He added: “There’s not any reason not to do it.”
