What's up with Liam Neeson?

Posted on

…or is Liam Neeson repeating himself? In the Batman Begins trailer, he’s goateed and robed, training a young man who will grow up to fight in a scary black suit — similar to his Qui-Gon Jinn from Star Wars: Episode I, no? And in his next project, Kingdom of Heaven (May 6), he’s the protagonist’s dad, a symbol of everything that’s good…just like in Gangs of New York! Liam! Your thoughts? ”I wouldn’t like to use that analogy,” he says of the comparison. Oh, but we would.
