While Conan and Peewee and Simon Pegg have graced the couches of the IFC Crossroads House in Austin we are making sure the viewers at home get some eye candy of their own. To that end, we are showing “Phone Booth” tonight at 5:45 p.m. ET. You’re welcome.
Colin Farrell plays the smoldering hot Stu, who has both a wife (Radha Mitchell) and a mistress (Katie Holmes), but apparently no cell phone. He steps into a phone booth to call his lady on the side, when karma catches up with him. (Pro Tip: Don’t cheat on your wife.) The phone rings and when he answers, a stranger on the other end (voice of Kiefer Sutherland) informs him that if he hangs up the phone, he’ll be shot. As they say, karma’s a bitch. Captain Ramey (Forest Whitaker) naturally assumes that Smoldering Stu is the troublemaker. The film is directed by Joel Schumacher and may have been the final nail in the coffin of the old phone booth industry.
‘Phonebooth’ airs on IFC at 5 p.m. ET
