Colin Farrell, the Irish actor who got his big break in 2000 when he landed a starring role in "Tigerland," has since appeared in a slew of movies including "Phone Booth," "S.W.A.T.," "Minority Report," "Miami Vice," "In Bruges" (for which he won a Golden Globe), "Horrible Bosses," "Saving Mr. Banks," "The Lobster" and "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" as well as in the HBO anthology crime-drama "True Detective." Next up, Colin — who got sober and successfully reformed his bad-boy reputation over the last dozen years — will star in 2019's "Eve." He shares son James — whose Angelman syndrome diagnosis has made Colin an advocate for children with special needs — with model ex Kim Bordenave and son Henry with Polish actress Alicja Bachleda-Curuś. Colin has been dating Kelly McNamara, who works for U2's management team, since 2015.
Michael Keaton stars as V.A. Vandevere, a ruthless and enigmatic entrepreneur who acquires a circus to exploit the titular elephant, in 2019's "Dumbo."
Michael Keaton — who famously dated Courteney Cox in the '90s — came to fame in the 1980s with starring roles in several movies including "Night Shift," "Beetlejuice" and "Mr. Mom." He went on to appear in a slew of movies including "Batman" and "Batman Returns," "Much Ado About Nothing," "Jackie Brown," "Spotlight" and "The Founder" and in 2015 won a Golden Globe as well as an Oscar nod for his starring performance in "Birdman."
Danny DeVito stars as Max Medici, the ringmaster and owner of a small, struggling circus that gets acquired by V.A. Vandevere, in 2019's "Dumbo."
Danny DeVito is a Hollywood legend who's been entertaining audiences for decades. The 74-year-old New Jersey native hit the scene in the 1970s, starring on the TV series "Taxi." He's since appeared in several successful films and TV shows including "Matilda," "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," "Terms of Endearment," "Twins," "Look Who's Talking Now," "Big Fish," "L.A. Confidential," "Space Jam," "Hercules" and "The Lorax." In 2019, he'll appear in "Jumanji 3." Danny shares three children, Lucy, Grace and Jacob, with his on-and-off wife of 37 years, actress Rhea Perlman.
Eva Green stars as Colette Marchant, a French trapeze artist, in 2019's "Dumbo."
French actress Eva Green has made quite a name for herself across the pond. The 38-year-old Parisian has notably starred in "Camelot," "Penny Dreadful," "Kingdom of Heaven," "Casino Royale," "300: Rise of an Empire," "Sin City," "Dark Shadows" and "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children." In 2019, she'll also appear in "Proxima." Rumors have linked Eva and "Dumbo" director Tim Burton since 2015.
Nico Parker stars as Milly Farrier, Holt's daughter, in "Dumbo."
Nico Parker is destined for stardom — it's in her genes! The 14 year old English actress is the daughter of Golden Globe winner Thandie Newton and "Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again" writer-director Ol Parker. "Dumbo" is Nico's first acting credit, but we're sure it won't be her last.
Finley Hobbins stars as Joe Farrier, Holt's son, in "Dumbo."
Finley Hobbins is new to the professional acting world. "Dumbo" is his first big role, but we're sure the talented child actor will land more credits soon. The English actor is a big "Star Wars" fan and reportedly (temporarily) gave co-star Nico Parker the cold shoulder when she got to visit her mom, Thandie Newton, on the set of "Solo: A Star Wars Story."
