No, it's not Liam Neeson's. It's the gigantic Swarovksi golden penis that's firmly lodged in the World Erotic Art Museum in Miami's South Beach, where people line up to admire it, stroke it, and even pose with it.
Liam Neeson is famously well endowed to the point where he rivals Kevin's Bacon and even Willem DeFoe-Gras. I mean if Schinder is listing at all, it's because his appendage is throwing things way off balance. So here it is. The legendary scene from 1991's Under Suspicion.

"You don't get actors like that who cut the bullshit," said director Joe Carnahan admiringly of his star Liam Neeson at their TimesTalk last night. "You get a lot of ego. You get a lot of hubris.

At a press junket for the imminent Unknown, Liam Neeson was asked, "How do you keep in shape for action films like this?" Without pausing, Neeson grinningly replied, "Lots of sex." Yay! He's certainly earned the right. Besides, he did play Kinsey.

3-D CGI replaces analog as an afterthought
