Spike Lee Will Not Cast Liam Neeson For Any Upcoming Movies2 months ago by Amber Le in Trending
Spike Lee is breaking his silence regarding the Liam Neeson situation. Earlier last week, the actor revealed an incident that had the Hip Hop community raise their eyebrows. He was telling the story of a friend who was tragically raped and upon describing who did it, Neeson took it as far as to say he was waiting on a black man to kill.
“i went up and down areas with a cosh, hoping I’d be approached by somebody – I’m ashamed to say that – and I did it for maybe a week, hoping some ‘black bastard’ would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something, you know? So that I could… kill him.”
Lee followed up with his own opinion and stated that Neeson is no longer an option when it comes to casting for movie roles. Lee did once have a movie that he believed would have fit Neeson just perfectly but after what he’s just learned, the director concluded that he would not, even if the budget allowed it.
“It’s a crazy, bizarre world we live in. I’ve not spoken to Liam… I don’t know why he did it, but he did it, so he’s going through it now… We haven’t got the money for that film, but one day we will. But i don’t think I’ll be going back to him. He’s too old now. That was a long time ago. It’s bad all around”
