Irish actor Colin Farrell has been told to muscle-up for his role in MIAMI VICE by the movie's director Michael Mann.

The Alexander heart-throb's physique is feeling the toll of his party-loving lifestyle and penchant for drink and drugs - and the HEAT film-maker wants his star in perfect condition for his starring role alongside OSCAR-winner Jamie Foxx.

Mann is adamant the 28-year-old has some hard work to do before he will be allowed to step in front of the cameras.

He says, "Colin is going to gain about 15 pounds of upper body muscle."
