Liam Neeson is opening up about his failed audition for the 1987 movie, The Princess Bride.
During his recent interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live last week, the 68-year-old actor revealed he had gone out for the role of Fezzik, which was ultimately played by Andre the Giant.
“I was quite nervous because I knew this was a big film and stuff. I had met the casting directors in LA,” Liam explained about the audition. “So I go into the office in London, and Rob Reiner looked at me and said ‘He’s not a giant. What height are you?’ I said ‘Six foot four.’ He said, ‘That’s tall, he’s not a giant.’”
Liam added that “there was no ‘hello, thank you.’ So I thought, the next time I see Rob Reiner, I’m going to tell him he was very rude.”
Just last month, the cast of the original movie reunited for a special reason. See what the occasion was here!
