Martin Scorsese will meet with Pope Francis at the Vatican on Wednesday (20 November) morning to discuss his latest film, a religious epic starring Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver and Liam Neeson. It’s not clear if Francis will be in attendance at the second, more private screening taking place on Thursday.
While Liam Neeson may well have ‘a very particular set of skills’, they still paled next to those of the legendary Muhammad Ali, who died on Friday at the age of 74. “He was my hero from when I was a young amateur boxer, and schoolboy, back in Ireland.
Micheál Neeson is a chip off the old block, then. The 20-year-old budding actor son of Liam Neeson made his screen debut with his dad during the Super Bowl ads, in a Tron-inspired promo for the LG OLED TV. The pair are seen sitting in a hotel bar, Neeson Sr supposedly ‘a man from the future’ playing with a deck of mysterious cards.
Liam Neeson has undergone a dramatic transformation for his role in the new Martin Scorsese film ‘Silence’. The ‘Taken’ star is playing a conflicted Jesuit missionary who travels to Japan and said he’s lost 20 pounds for the role. Talking to reporters at the Los Cabos International Film Festival about the film, the actor said he found working with the legendary director Scorsese intimidating (even though he worked with him before on ‘Gangs Of New York’). He said: “Martin is intimidating.. He’s legendary - so as a performer you have to get over that. An adaptation of Shûsaku Endô‘s book, it sees ‘Spider-Man’ star Andrew Garfield (below) play a jesuit missionary set to 17th century Japan to investigate his mentor (Neeson) who has been accused of apostasy. Expect it to arrive on our screens in winter 2016.
Liam Neeson’s ‘Taken’ character Bryan Mills has become the unlikely saviour of an exasperated father who got fed up with his messy kids. The unidentified dad used Mills’ iconic speech from ‘Taken’ to threaten his kids who refused to “put their dishes in the dishwasher” with having their wifi privileges revoked, leaving this brilliantly passive aggressive note above the sink. Shared by Reddit user labuzan the note has since been viewed thousands of time online, doubtless inspiring other antagonised dads to do the same thing. The note reads: I don’t know who you are.
