Life's Too Short for Liam Neeson

Liam's list - 'why Steven chose me for Schindler'

"Maybe Steven Spielberg chose me because I love lists... he said I'd be perfect for Schindler's List," - says actor Liam Neeson in a new comedy.

The Hollywood star who is originally from Ballymena, Northern Ireland featured in the first episode of Life's Too Short, Ricky Gervais' BBC 2 sitcom.

In his role, he visits Ricky to declare his interest in working in comedy. He has even made a list.

"It's probably why Steven cast me for Schindler's list," he says, deadpan.

Life's Too Short is a fake documentary starring Warwick Davis, from the creators of The Office and Extras, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.

Johnny Depp, Sting and Helena Bonham Carter also feature in the new series.

Depp confronts Ricky Gervais about his comments at the Golden Globes awards ceremony accusing him of "trashing" him in front of two million people.
