Liam Neeson looks a lot better — thinner, calmer, cleaner, better groomed — during his 60 Minutes interview with Anderson Cooper (airing tomorrow) than he does in Non-Stop, in which he plays an alcoholic, cigarette-smoking air marshall. I doubt if Cooper asked if Neeson is comfortable being known as a guy whose post-Hidden career has basically been about paychecks, but the Irish-born actor says the following: “I’m 61 years of age, man, you know? Going around, fighting these guys…yeah, I feel a wee bit embarrassed, you know?” Maybe but that’s bullshit. Neeson is a big, strong, manly-looking guy in decent shape, and he can do the action thing until he’s 70, at least, and perhaps beyond that. No Non-Stop reviews until Wednesday, 2.26 at 9 am Pacific. Congrats to Neeson for landing a major role in Martin Scorsese‘s Silence, which I’m probably going to have difficulty with.
