Liam Neeson Prank Called Maggie Grace's Ex-Boyfriend in Full Taken Mode

Jay Hathaway · 01/09/15 11:27AM

Liam Neeson is just as protective of his Taken (and Taken 2 and Taken 3) daughter Maggie Grace in real life as he is in the movies. Grace told Conan O'Brien that once, when she was feeling down over a breakup, she had occasion to employ Neeson's particular set of skills, which apparently include prank calling.

Liam Neeson Is Scarily Passionate About Horse-Drawn Carriages

Rich Juzwiak · 02/27/14 12:03PM

Liam Neeson's Daily Show interview last night ostensibly served to promote his latest movie Non-Stop, but over half of it was taken up by his passionate advocacy to keep horse-drawn carriages in New York. True to his action-hero persona, Liam Neeson cares a lot and is not afraid of anything—not even the wrath of PETA. What a weird fucking platform, though.

Do Yourself a Favor and See Dredd 3D Instead of Taken 2

Rich Juzwiak · 10/05/12 10:45AM

Taken 2 is where crap becomes unwatchable crap. Its 2008 predecessor was garbage, too, but at least it was well-paced garbage. For a while, Taken 2 is one of those cookie-cutter sequels that goes beat-for-beat with what came before it, a la Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. The plot-point repetition alone makes for an over-the-top experience that actually seems to be owning up to its junkiness. It's just too ridiculous.

Liam Neeson Tops Box Office, But Katherine Heigl Remains Relevant

Louis Peitzman · 01/28/12 12:03PM

It should come as no surprise that The Grey AKA Liam Neeson Fights Some Goddamn Wolves topped the box office on Friday. The Hollywood Reporter predicts an $18 million weekend, which would be more impressive if it weren't competing against so many shitty movies. In second place, the Katherine Heigl vehicle One for the Money, which has the distinct disadvantage of no wolves and a fairly contentious star. Even Heigl, at one point, admitted that no one liked her.
