Inside the Actors Studio and its host, James Lipton, welcomes Oscar-nominated actor and Taken 2 star Liam Neeson to its stage tomorrow night (October 2nd).
In the show, Lipton asks Neeson about his roles in Schindler’s List, The Dark Knight Rises and Kinsey. I’m assuming they won’t talk about the cinematic trash pile, Battleship.
Neeson also shares details ranging from his always-changing accents to his romances with famous leading ladies.
Here are some quotes from the upcoming episode:
- “Of course I can ride [a horse], John. I’m Irish.” – The lie Neeson told “Excalibur” director John Boorman to get a part.
- “That’s a big tree, right?” – Neeson’s response to drama critic John Lahr’s description of him as “a sequoia of sex.”
- “It’s always script, then director, then size of the salary I guess.” – Neeson on how he picks his choice of role.
- “You’re wife’s inside with a big chilled bottle of Pinot Noir.” – Neeson on what he would like to hear God say at the gates of Heaven.
