Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I can’t get enough of Liam Neeson. Ever since he was about the only thing worth watching in the first Star Wars prequel, I’ve been hooked on his Neeson-ness.
So who better to portray Thor, God of Thunder, in the remake of Clash of the Titans. According to CBC News Canada, the casting is a done deal. This means the Neeson will be starring opposite Ralph Feinnes who is paying Hades, God of the underworld. It will be the first time the two have clashed on-screen since Schindler’s List, and I can’t wait.
This story does have a sadness to it, though, as this will be the first role Neeson has taken since the tragic death of his wife Natasha Richardson.
