I’m so happy there is a UK. Actually, Graham Norton isn’t technically British, huh. He is Irish, though! And so is handsome Liam Neeson, star of the new movie The Grey! So I’m happy there is an Ireland, is what I’m saying.
Have you guys seen the trailer for The Grey, by the way? It has something to do with Alaska and a plane crash and some wolves. Actually, The Grey is in hot water over its portrayal of the Gray Wolf as some sort of killing machine—wolves, and especially gray ones, are endangered, you guys. I know this because when I was a kid I had a wolf poster on my bedroom wall. Also, a photograph of Judi Dench.
Where was I? Ah, yes. I love Graham Norton. He’s really twerpy, and he does it very, very well.
In this clip from last night’s episode of The Graham Norton Show, an audience member makes a very compelling case that she is Mr. Neeson’s first-ever fan (she has brought along a letter that he sent her 30 years ago!).
Her request: will he rerecord the greeting on her voicemail?
Needless to say, Liam Neeson does so, and with aplomb.
