Will he pee his pants?

Are you the chemist? I don't know where you are. I don't know what you sell. If you sell foot powder, I can tell you I don't have athlete's foot... but what I do have are a very particular set of scrips. Scrips I have acquired from a very long appointment with my orthopedic surgeon. Scrips that make me feel better after working in the garden. If you fill these for me now, that will be the end of it - I will not look for you, I will not pursue you... but if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you... and I will politely inquire if you have them ready for me.

Let's hope he talks to De Niro.  Jeez, that was sad, watching him try to deliver a beatdown in The Irishman.

"I'm 68½ - 69 this year," the Oscar nominee explained on "Entertainment Tonight."

Yes, that's how it works, chronologically.

At least the Irishman didn't have 15 cuts for a 3 second shot of jumping over a fence

Can't be as sad as his comedies.

Anyway, good for him. I'd hate to see him in one of those embarrassing "Expendables" movies.

He shouldn't have bought that box of Trix.

at this point he's done enough material he should be able to license himself for deep-fake-type productions and rake in the cash all the same.

i mean.... its action.

Nice to see an actor not try to defy the march of time. No tons of plastic surgery and dating 18-year-olds. I have enjoyed so many of his films and I'm sure he will be many more wonderful characters. Nice to see some common sense coming from an actor.
 
2021-01-16 1:31:43 AM  
I won't have to confuse him with Ralph Fiennes anymore.

Isn't he the guy who said he went hunting black guys because a black guy raped a friend of his?

Neesan will never stop going after dark men.

As an example of something stupid and racist he did when he was young, yeah.

I thought that got him canceled, admitting that during an interview. Or on Oprah. Wherever.

It tanked the movie he was promoting at the time. Well, that and the fact it was terrible, but then again that's never stopped anyone from watching Neeson films before.

Zany characters
 
2021-01-16 7:48:13 AM  
The funny thing is, he wasn't considered an action star until Taken, which he did when he was 56 or 57 (depending on the timing).

On another note, how was Taken 12 years ago? I feel old. Of course, the five year old and 11 month old help with that.

It did. It was also used as an example of "outrage culture" that doesn't take context into effect.
 
2021-01-16 8:34:17 AM  
Didn't he really just latch onto doing action flicks after his wife died?

Before "Taken," he was pretty much known as a prestige actor.

Still think he should have gotten at least an Oscar nomination for "Michael Collins."

Right, he was cancelled and never in another movie again

And also Tom Hanks is going to be arrested for being a pedophile any day now, well....according to you

Yeah, by Taken 3 it was painfully obvious he had slowed down a bit. I blame the director.

Yeah, he went on a working binge after his wife died. Trying to forget. Maybe he's getting over it now--it's been about 15 years. At least I hope so.

Ever see HF on a talk show? The man is more boring than a 7th grade Science teacher.

Didn't he retire from acting once before? I gather from posts above he may have had a change of heart after his wife died. But I'm pretty sure before Taken he had said he wasn't going to do any more movies.

What's he going to do now?  Retire?

Because cheesy action movies is all that guy has done for the last 15 years.

/Also, he said this exact thing 10 years ago.  And then he kept doing them.
