Liam Neeson's Bad Parenting'll Get His Kid 'Taken' a Third Time

20th Century Fox 20th Century Fox

$20 million'll change just about anybody's tune, so it's little surprise that when that kind of mega-cash got waggled in front of Liam Neeson's face to entice another display of his particular set of skills go at being "Taken," he stepped off of his previous I'm-Not-Gonna-Do-That platform with some pretty quick feet.

Yep, per Deadline, Neeson's been wrangled back into retired CIA operative Bryan Mills' luckless shoes for "Taken 3," earning a $5 million pay raise for the third installment after "Taken 2" abducted $376 million smackers out of the worldwide box office last winter. Get More »

GALLERY: We're Quite Taken With Maggie Grace

Maggie Grace is trouble. And we like that.

Maggie was stranded on a deserted island (and later "voted off," so to speak) on "Lost," haunted by an evil mist in "The Fog," kidnapped and sold into sex slavery (or at least drugged-up dancing) in "Taken" and taken hostage during a riot on a prison spaceship in "Lockout." And she looked really, really good in every single scenario.

Now Maggie's causing all sorts of drama (and war and death, perhaps) for the Cullen clan in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2." Check out our collection of pics of this troubled young lady looking hot (and often bothered) throughout the years in movies, television and on the red carpet.

Essential Guide to the New Vampires in 'Breaking Dawn - Part 2'

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 Summit

This week, we'll be giving a big farewell to "The Twilight Saga" with the release of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" on Friday.

Judging by the clips and trailers we've seen so far, we can expect to see some serious vampire Bella (Kristen Stewart) action and get to catch up with the one and only Cullen coven. But, with a ton of other bloodlovers coming into the fold for the final film, Twi-hards should probably also brace for some new faces.

To help remind you who's who among the new coven vampires in "Breaking Dawn - Part 2," we put together this handy dandy little refresher guide. Get More »

Watch These 4 Clips or You'll Be 'Taken 2'

Liam Neeson in "Taken 2" Fox

In 2008's smash hit "Taken," Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) had to rescue his daughter, but, in "Taken 2," it's him who gets snatched up, and his one-and-only pride and joy Kim (Maggie Grace) has to get dad out of trouble.

Of course, Neeson gets more than his fair share of opportunities to tear a bunch of Albanian mafiosi a new a**hole, and show off some cunning tricks of the trade he didn't get to display on his first merry-go-round. Get More »

My Favorite Movie: Maggie Grace

"One of my favorites is the beautiful Franco Zeffirelli version of 'Romeo and Juliet' from 1968. Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey have such chemistry that I could watch that over and over again.

"When I was 13, I saw it about 20 times and would pause it on the 'dirty' parts. That's what Christian school does: 'Oh my God! They showed her topless. Pause!"

Maggie Grace can currently be seen in the sci-fi thriller "Lockout" opposite Guy Pearce.

Q&A: 'Lockout' First Daughter Maggie Grace on Being an Unlikely Action Star

Maggie Grace might not see herself as an action-movie heroine, but you wouldn't know it by watching her opposite Guy Pearce in the new sci-fi thriller "Lockout." The 28-year-old actress moved to Los Angeles from Ohio after her parents' divorce and won accolades for her breakout role in the 2002 TV movie "Murder in Greenwich." That led to more TV roles -- including the part of Shannon Rutherford on "Lost" -- and memorable appearances on the big screen as Liam Neeson's kidnapped daughter in "Taken" and Irina the vampire in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1."

We sat down with Grace as she chatted candidly about the behind-the-scenes action on "Lockout," her "Lost" finale reunion, her preparedness for "Twilight" mania and how she got the nickname "Maggie Graceless." Get More »
