Liam Neeson Was a Sexy Hitman on ‘Miami Vice’: Late Last Night

We’ve witnessed Liam Neeson in just about every role imaginable. He’s been a Jedi Knight, the world’s most famous sexologist, and the hero who saved hundres of people from Nazi persecution. But there’s one role I don’t think many of us recall or even know about: the sexy IRA hitman on Miami Vice. Neeson stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and shared his big break on the 80s series, plus he played Taken 2 charades with Jimmy.

If video below does not play, watch the interview here.

While most have us have been atwitter about Elizabeth Banks’ upcoming role as Effie in The Hunger Games or about her character’s fate on 30 Rock now that King Jong Il has passed, but she’s actually got other stuff going on, people. She stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman to plug her new movie, Man on a Ledge and if you’re not convinced that you should give the movie your time, she’s prepared to guilt us all by regaling us with the details of their shoot atop The Roosevelt Hotel in New York City during which she was armed with nothing more than extremely thin wires and bolts, which are very susceptible to human error and stupidity. Luckily, it seems she’s lived to tell the story.

Finally, we have Stephen Merchant who created HBO’s Life is Short along with Ricky Gervais. He stopped by Conan and before showing us that wonderful clip of Liam Neeson trying to be a comedian on the new HBO series, he took a moment to show us what it would look like if the lovely Kate Becknisale wore his huge, size 15 shoes.
