by Britt Hayes March 24, 2015 @ 8:12 PM
Ready or not, the Entourage movie is coming. The latest trailer has arrived, boasting parties, booze, yachts and lots of famous faces. It’s like a Where’s Waldo? of cameos in there, from Bob Saget to George Takei to Liam Neeson to…Bob Saget. But enough name-dropping, already. This movie also has a story to tell, and that story is about Vinnie Chase, director.

There’s a new Liam Neeson movie this week, as it seems there is almost every week lately. Since Taken debuted in some seven years ago, Neeson has become one of the most prolific actors in Hollywood, churning out gritty B-movies and action pictures at a clip of two or three a year. (His last film, Tak3n, came out less than two months ago; his next, Ted 2, comes out in June.)

Liam Neeson Says He’s Ready to Quit Action Movies

With Taken, Liam Neeson became an unlikely action star, with his quiet, solemn masculinity lending gravitas to even the silliest dialogue and story beats. But rather than use the success of that instantly meme-able film as an excuse to pursue more period dramas and British weepies, Neeson embraced his newfound action hero identity. Now, after seven years of snapping necks and gunning people down across several continents, it looks like he’s ready to retire from the action hero game for good.

‘Run All Night’ Trailer: Perpetual Action Hero Liam Neeson Takes on the Mob

by Britt Hayes February 11, 2015 @ 8:16 PM
Here’s the thing: Liam Neeson is basically starring in the same movies over and over. He’s a living action figure, where you just change his accessories and he can go from air marshall to former CIA agent to hitman, like the one he plays in the first trailer for ‘Run All Night.’ The basic Liam Neeson action figure comes with a leather jacket and a gun, but you can give him different badges, a cell phone, or upgrade his weapons and boom, it’s a whole new story. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but we should all acknowledge it. Go ahead. Try saying it out loud. Feels great.

Liam Neeson may act like a total badass when he's in movies like ‘Taken’, but he's not above poking a little fun at his new tough guy persona. The actor appeared in a new Super Bowl commercial for Clash of Clans and delivered a monologue that sounds as if it were taken (no pun intended) from one of his shoot-em-up action movies.
