Liam Neeson

Liam Neeson har offisielt gitt opp Star Wars- og superheltfilmer

Skuespilleren legger ingenting imellom i nytt intervju.

Ser vi bort fra «Darkman» og innsatsen som Ra’s al Ghul i «Batman Begins» og «The Dark Knight Rises», har Liam Neeson holdt avstand fra superhelt-sjangeren. Og det er i grunn en imponerende bragd, med tanke på karrieren hans - som både involverer storfilmer som "Star Wars" og "Clash of the Titans".

I et nytt intervju med Entertainment Tonight, avslører skuespilleren at han sannsynligvis vil fortsette å holde det slik:

“I’m really not a huge fan of the genre», forteller han og legger til:

“I think it’s Hollywood with all the bells and whistles and the technical achievements and stuff — which I admire — but I have no desire to go into the gym for three hours every day to pump myself up to squeeze into a Velcro suit with a cape.”

Videre utdyper Neeson:

"I admire the actors and I know some of the actors who do it — and do it fantastically. It’s just not my genre, it really isn’t. The first Star Wars, I was in that, that was 22 years ago, and I enjoyed that, because it was novel and that was new. I was acting to tennis balls, which were ultimately going to be little fuzzy furry creatures and stuff. That was interesting, acting-wise, to try and make that seem real, but that was the last. It’s quite exhausting."

Vel, vi får vel bare nøye oss med Neesons tre trillioner thrillere - og overlate lateksen til noen andre da...
