It turns out Liam Neeson was an accidental action star. Now, at 65, he's ready to leave thrillers behind. At the Toronto International Film Festival, Neeson said:

I'm like: 'Guys I'm sixty-f***ing-five.' Audiences are eventually going to go: 'Come on.'

But are audiences tired of Neeson as an action hero?

Apparently they're not ready for him to go:

Though Neeson enjoys box office success in thrillers, the Irish star says he wants to focus on more serious roles.

Neeson said his career in action-packed thrillers was "all a pure accident."

Neeson has two more thrillers coming out: Hard Powder, in which he plays a snowplow driver who fights a drug cartel, and The Commuter, directed by... Jaume Collet-Serra.

Thank you, Mr. Neeson, for all the thrills.
