Liam Neeson said his days as an action hero are over


Actor Liam Neeson said even though its tough to turn down lucrative offers, he's finished making thrillers.

Neeson said he's just getting too old to be an action hero.

"The thrillers, that was all a pure accident," Neeson said. "They're still throwing serious money at me to do that stuff. I'm like, 'Guy's I'm sixty-f---ing-five.' Audiences are eventually going to go, 'Come on.'"

Neeson said his two upcoming revenge thrillers, "Hard Powder" and "The Commuter," will be his last.

"I've shot one that's going to come out in January sometime. There might be another. That's it," Neeson said.

Instead, the actor is focusing more on dramatic work. Neeson's Watergate drama "Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House" premiered Monday at the Toronto International Film Festival. In it, he plays the Washington Post's "Deep Throat" source in the scandal.

Neeson's career took an unlikely turn in 2009 with the first "Taken" film. The three "Taken" films have grossed $929.5 million worldwide.
