Why Hollywood Fails in 2013

They have yet to make a movie with Ed O'Neill and Liam Neeson as brothers. Maybe it's a comedy, maybe it's a drama. Could be a thriller. Doesn't matter. All the Hollywood elite can go fuck themselves until they make this happen. I've patiently waited and waited and they still haven't done so.

That is all.

Re: Why Hollywood Fails in 2013

I've been thinking the same thing recently. It's just absurd that those guys have never played brothers in a big hollywood feature film. I know Liam has pleaded with executives and writers to make it happen, but thus far has fallen on deaf ears.

I'm not sure that's going to happen considering the feud between Neeson and O'Neil goes back to Leap of Faith when O'Neil was up for Neeson's role and Neeson used some underhanded ways to get the part. Those two have hated earth other for over 20 years.

I didn't know there was a Al Bundy-Ra's Al Ghul thing going on on the internet. I've never thought about the two looking anything alike.

i think Ed O'neil could have some juice as an action guy, he is a Gracie black belt and could make empty hand stuff look real.

Maybe Schindler's List 2: Hitler Boogaloo unites them?

Re: Why Hollywood Fails in 2013

Given how selective Liam Neeson has become choosing projects and his obvious desire to work as little as possible, I fear even a top notch project and the chance to finally play Ed O'Neill's brother won't get him onboard. Shame, because we see so little of Liam at the movies these past few years.

Just watch Spartan again and imagine Ed O'Neill as Liam Neeson's brother who taught him all those exfiltration tricks.

Re: Why Hollywood Fails in 2013

In that case, can we throw in Katey Sagal for good measure?

Has Helen Hunt ever played Leelee Sobieski's mom?

Alright so Ed O'Neill and Liam Neesons play brothers who both banged Helen Hunt, the mom of Leelee Sobieski, Erika Christensen, Jennifer Lawrence and Julia Stiles. Neesonses current wife is Katey Sagal who finds out Hunt is loaded and shenanigans ensue.

Domestic dramedy ensues.

Coming to video May 2014.

I want to say she did. I always thought they looked so alike.

Liam Neeson plays Ed O'Neill's long lost brother Ray Pritchett. When Gloria Pritchett is taken by her ex husband, former Detective Rey Curtis who went crazy after his partner Lennie Briscoe's daughter, Baby, joined her boyfriend's gang the Ex-Presidents and was killed sky surfing while trying to escape undercover detective Ted "Theodore" Logan after a failed bank heist. Using abilities developed through his mystical study of an ancient lost religion, Ray Pritchett is able to recover Gloria with the help of his apprentices Miss Piggy, Jane Foster, and Bruce Wayne.
