Liam Neeson Joins The Cast Of Battleship
Liam Neeson used to make movies like Schindler's List, Nell and Michael Collins. He's an Oscar nominated actor who made his name in heavy dramas. Apparently he doesn't really care about that anymore. Deadline reports that Neeson has joined the cast of Peter Berg's Battleship. In the film, the actor will play Admiral Shane, the father of Brooklyn Decker's character. The film co-stars Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgaard, and Rihanna.
Seventeen years ago, Neeson played the title role in a Steven Spielberg film widely considered to be one of the greatest of all time - a historical drama in which his character does everything in his power to help the Jewish people under persecution from the Nazis. Now he's playing a background character in a movie based on a board game that will likely see a pop star have higher billing then him. The man seriously needs to fire his agent.
