If you’ve ever watched a film from the Taken franchise, you know that Liam Neeson has a “particular set of skills”. But it turns out that those skills include practical jokes.
Actor and owner of arguably the most terrifying voice in the world Liam Neeson has proven once and for all he’s the best fake dad an actress can have.
(If tracking down and f*cking up his daughter’s kidnappers in Taken didn’t already prove that.)
In an interview with Conan O’Brien, Neeson’s Taken co-star and movie daughter Maggie Grace has shared a hilarious story about a prank Liam played on her (alleged) dirt bag ex-boyfriend.
“He’s the best, fake, movie dad any girl could ask for,” Maggie said. “I mean he’s so protective, in real life too.”
“So there was this boy he was kind of… whatever, I was a little bit heartbroken and was kind of a hot mess and I was telling Liam about it because he always asks about my love life or lack there of and he was like ‘this just can’t be we have to set this kid straight, what should we do?'”
“And so we called him at his house.”
And recorded it.
It. Is. Perfect.
Seriously Liam, we think you could make a lot of money offering this prank call service.
Watch the phone call in full in the video below. No footage available of the ex-boyfriend pooping his pants in sheer terror but we assume that’s what happened next.
