While on the promotion circuit for his upcoming action thriller Run All Night, actor Liam Neeson dropped a bombshell while discussing his career resurgence with The Guardian :
“Maybe two more years. If God spares me and I’m healthy,” he said in a US interview. “But after that, I’ll stop [the action] I think.”
This comes as a surprise to many film goers as the 62 year old actor has been cranking out action film after action film as of late with 2015 seeing two films (Taken 3 and Run All Night) in the first 3 months! But the actor doesn't want to become a laughing stock as he continued:
“If I feel audiences saying, ‘Come on, he’s 62, enough is enough,’ I’m very sensitive to that and if I pick up that vibe it will all stop. And I’ll start playing dads or grandfathers. But I keep myself pretty fit and my knees are still great. And it’s fun.”
Neeson will be taking a break from action films the rest of 2015 as his lone remaining film will be the upcoming comedy sequel Ted 2.
What do you think?! Should Liam retire from action films?!
