In honor of the sequel to the most entertaining action movie we ever bothered to see, we present our favorite hot old man and this week's Broast, Liam Neeson.
While Liam may be 60 years old, he still has the same name as Miley Cyrus' boyfriend, so we think that makes him young at heart. An Irish pro, he's played such a great range of characters that we've really been able to see his acting versatility. From playing a German hero to a French hero to an American hero, he shows betches everywhere that you don't have to be under thirty to be bad ass and play the same role in a different country every other fucking year.
After seeing Taken we weren't sure if we wanted to marry him or have him be our dad and protect us against sex offenders and European public transportation, but one thing was clear. Liam was sexy and Marco was going down. He even got 20 million dollars to do the exact same shit he did in 2008 but with a more retarded plot.
In Love Actually, he and the rest of the British Actors Guild made us believe in true love, which was made all the more powerful after learning he was married to the late Natasha Richardson (RIP) aka Elizabeth James. And fuck, we even liked him as the voice of Aslan in the Lion, the Witch, and the disgusting, old Wardrobe.
So congrats Liam, on being this week's Broast of the Week and for showing young bros everywhere that it's not the amount of years in your life that count but the amount of life in your action films despite being nearly a senior citizen.
Some of our fav Liam quotes
On #36 not doing work: I'm not the kind of actor that would know what my character had for breakfast last Tuesday.
On #5 diets: In Los Angeles, it's like they jog for two hours a day and then they think they're morally right. That's when you want to choke people, you know?
Just throw a lot of carrots and onions in there and I'll call it dinner.
On former Betch of the Week Rihanna: Rihanna is a very talented person. One of those people who are able to do whatever they want with great results.
On His Very Particular Set of Skills: I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.
Sorry that might not have been Liam himself...
