He's Liam Neeson. And yeah... even at 65... he could still kick your a--.
Neeson, star of the upcoming film "The Commuter" reunites with director Jaume Collet-Serra in a thriller about a man's frantic quest to uncover the truth surrounding a mysterious train passenger before it's too late. The film co-stars Sam Neill, Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson.
Action audiences have come to love Neeson from his work in the "Taken" trilogy as well as turns in films like "The Grey," "Schindler's List" and the "Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace." He and Collet-Serra, who also directed Neeson in "Unknown," ''Non-Stop" and "Run All Night," reflect about his film legacy and just how long he can continue beating up on co-stars half his age.
"I don't want to feel the audiences going 'Oh come on! Who do you think you are?' Anytime i see the completed film if there are action sequences I want them to look real and believable," Neeson said. "I'm 65 years of age I don't want to look like I'm trying to be 37."
Earlier this year, Neeson said he plans to transition out of the action genre and focus on dramas following the release of "The Commuter" and the upcoming "Hard Powder" co-starring Emmy Rossum.
