The 61-year-old demonstrated a particular set of intimidation skills that audiences first saw in 2009 thriller “Taken”
Liam Neeson made a fan’s dream come true on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” when he obliged a request to “scare the shit” out of the young man by treating him like one of the many bad guys Neeson has killed during his career renaissance as an action hero.
“I want you to listen very carefully, Matthew. Before this night’s over, I will kill you,” Neeson said on Monday night (above), before promising that death is just the beginning of his torment.
Luckily, Kimmel dimmed the lights and Neeson stared directly into the camera so everyone — not just the actor obviously planted in the audience — can experience the fear that accompanies death threats from the star of the “Taken” franchise, and this weekend’s release, “Non-Stop.”
Savor this moment. Normally, Neeson noted, he only does this sort of thing for “a lot of pesos.”
