Kelly & Michael: Liam Neeson
Liam Neeson came by to talk to Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan about his new Taken movie Taken 3, which Forest Whitaker already talked about. People are really obsessed with the Taken movies, so I was excited to hear more about Taken 3. Neeson has done over 70 films, and they’re “quite taken with him.” He said it felt like a Monday because there was a high energy. Thursday’s almost Friday though. Neeson said Thursday was payday back home.
Kelly & Michael: Liam Neeson Height Problems
He and Michael compared their heights. He gave Michael a scary look. It was hard for him to be tall as an altar boy. He was told not to serve at Mass because he was too tall. They were nice about it. Neeson’s not scared of God though. He called God “her,” which I liked.
Kelly & Michael: Liam Neeson On College
Neeson’s youngest son is in his last year at school. College makes Neeson nervous. It’s the end of an era. It’s time. He wants to push them out. They have to experience the world. Kids should travel more and learn about different cultures. He’s really into the gap year. Going from school to college is a big transition. He couldn’t handle the freedom of it, but a gap year would be cool.
Kelly & Michael: Liam Neeson ‘Taken’ Misunderstanding
Neeson just got a letter from a teacher in south Texas. She was upset that she organized a trip for 60 kids to travel to Europe, but the parents saw the Taken films and withdrew them thinking they were going to be kidnapped. It happened again the next year. The principal said they couldn’t take a side. He told her if any of the kids get taken, he was coming after them.
Kelly & Michael: ‘Taken 3’
In the clip of Taken 3, Neeson’s character was getting ready to go on his mission. This time, though, he was on the run for the law. He’s being hunted because a horrible crime has been committed and people are blaming him. He’s a huge action star. How is he 62 years old. He said it’s just a number. He feels 37.
He almost said no to Taken 3 because it felt like they already did it where people got taken, but now they have a unique new twist. Plus, they have Forest Whitaker. He’s such a heavyweight actor. Taken 3 will be in theaters on January 9 2015.
