There's no signs of slowing down for the 68-year-old Liam Neeson. He flexes his fighting skills yet again, as a loner hero in his new film, 'The Marksman.' (Jan. 14)
- I worry about you.
LIAM NEESON: I have a stunt coordinator called Mark Vanselow. We've just finished our 25th film together in Melbourne, Australia. And I just like-- I like getting together with Mark and the stunt guys and choreographing a couple of fights.
I was in the Marine Corps so I suggest you all turn around and adios.
- I'm a soldier, too. My orders are to take them back with me.
LIAM NEESON: I'm like a kid in a candy store. I love doing that stuff, you know? Obviously, the story has to be appealing, but I just-- I do like doing physical stuff. I don't do my own stunts. I do my own fighting. Jacob Perez, who plays Miguel, had very little experience acting.

What he did when he did act, it was absolutely pure and honest. And I just learned a lot from that kid. We keep in touch. You know, he calls me Grandpa Neeson--
- She must have had a lot of faith in you.
LIAM NEESON: --which I take as a compliment. No man is an island, or a woman, you know. We have to reach out and try to help each other. We really do. I know that sounds very hippy dippy but I believe it, you know?
