Liam Neeson will find you… a faster way home thanks to new Waze update

Liam Neeson can be a right agrohead if you mess with his family, but if you’re simply trying to find your way home for Christmas, he’s happy to lend a hand.

The Google-owned navigation app Waze has added the Taken star to its array of celebrities providing turn-by-turn voice directions.

Waze users in the US can navigate to Settings > Voice Directions > Liam Neeson in order to access is soft and comforting Northern Irish tones on your way home from Christmas shopping.

Remember, this is Star Wars season. We know most of you have blocked Episode I from your memory, but if you’re seeking the wisdom of Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn to guide you home, you’re also in luck.

Sadly, Neeson is only available until January 14. If you’re wondering why this is such a brief encounter, the feature is a tie-in with his latest film The Commuter.

Forced badassery

Our Liam is once again playing a mild-mannered chap who’s forced into breaking out the badassery against his will.

In this instance, he’s an insurance salesman (the least badass folks on earth?) who is blackmailed into discovering the identity of a passenger “who doesn’t belong” on the train, before his last stop.

As he works to solve the mystery, he soon realises he’s embroiled in a criminal plot with life or death ramifications for everyone on board.

The trailer actually looks like it’ll be pretty decent. And it has Vera Farmiga and Sam Neill. Personally we can’t help wondering if Neeson’s latest movie will please this pair (NSFW)…
