A Sandwich Shop Made A Joke About Liam Neeson Eating For Free So He Showed Up

The actor must have been "Taken" with the offer, heh heh.

There's an iconic moment in the movie "Taken" where Liam Neeson's character says, "If you let my sandwich go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will eat you."

Okay... that quote might not be entirely accurate, but it pretty much could be after a Canadian sandwich shop's ploy to get the actor's attention totally payed off.

After hearing that the star of the "Taken" movies was filming in the area, the Big Star Sandwich Co. in New Westminster BC put out an offer on their chalkboard just for him:

What they didn't expect was for the star to actually walk past!

Speaking to the Globe and Mail, a spokesperson for the sandwich shop said Neeson came in, and using his signature gruff voice, asking "Where's my sandwich?" But apparently he didn't actually take the shop up on their offer of free food, and headed back to filming.

Neeson is in town shooting a film called "Hard Powder", where he plays a humble snowplow driver who is on a mission of revenge to find the drug dealers he believes killed his son. Basically it sounds like "Taken" meets "Frozen". He's not gonna let it go, he's gonna let it snow.

In the meantime, the folks at Big Star are hoping Neeson returns for a bite, having now named a sandwich after him.

He's going to need a very particular set of skills to finish that off.
