Liam Neeson, the Hollywood actor superstar, the veteran of more than a hundred movies, and Oscar-nominee for his latest film 'Cold Pursuit', has announced his intention to quit the silver screen, and to join the police force.
Neeson, 66, said that he had enjoyed much success in showbusiness, but felt it was time to move on, and that he had much to offer law and order.
The star, who portrayed Oskar Schindler in the Steven Spielberg epic, 'Schindler's Lifts', admitted that, at his age, law enforcement was a challenging role, but said:
"Acting has been very rewarding, and I've become rich. I've become so rich, in fact, that I feel that people should listen to me on the wider stage when I start to spout off about stuff."
He went on:
"I have my cosh, and am ready to do my duty, to protect and serve. Especially white women who are raped. Especially them."
