Northern Irish actor Liam Neeson made his debut in the mid-’70s, but his breakout role came in the Holocaust drama ‘Schindler’s List,’ directed by Steven Spielberg. The actor earned an Academy Award nomination for his performance in the titular character of Oskar Schindler. Neeson emerged as a prominent actor of his generation with hits like ‘Star Wars: Episode I,’ ‘Kinsey,’ and ‘Taken.’ Back-to-back action blockbusters stereotyped him during the late ’90s and early 2000s. But he shifted his gears with movies like ‘Nut Job,’ ‘The LEGO Movie,’ ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West,’ and ‘Silence.’ The actor has a long list of unforgettable performances that remain etched in people’s memories to this day.
Despite his achievements, Neeson remains to be one of the underrated actors of all time (Yes you read that right). At this point, you must be wondering wondering what is the next Liam Neeson movie or TV show? Well, here’s the list of upcoming Liam Neeson films and TV shows scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest Liam Neeson movies would be as good as some of his recent ones.
