Seemingly worried it’d lose him a few female fans taking on such a nasty pastie part, Colin Firth has passed on an offer to play the villain in Spike Lee’s “Oldboy” remake, says Twitch.

The Oscar Winning star of “The King’s Speech” (who will soon be reuniting with Hugh Grant and Renee Zellweger for a second sequel to “Bridget Jones’s Diary”) is the latest actor to turn down a part in Mandate’s redo of the Koren classic; Rooney Mara and Christian Bale had also passed on the film.

Firth would have planned a slick criminal who kidnaps a father, played by Josh Brolin, on the man’s daughter’s birthday. The man is held hostage for fifteen years, at which time he begins to search for answers about why he was held captive and seeks out the culprit.

Hey Spike! What about Denzel Washington? You and he go ‘way back’, right!?
