This week Liam Neeson revealed that he was “heavily courted” for the role of James Bond back in the 90′s before Pierce Brosnan took over as the Martini-swilling spy.
Liam says he turned producers down as his future wife Natasha Richardson was against the idea – “It was about 18 or 19 years ago and my wife-to-be said, ‘If you play James Bond we’re not getting married’. And I had to take that on board because I did want to marry her.”

Today I caught up with R5 ahead of their gig in Vicar Street, Dublin. The band includes Disney’s ‘Austin & Ally’ star Ross Lynch, his siblings ‘Glee’ star Riker Lynch, Rocky Lynch and Rydel Lynch and their friend Ellington Ratliff.
I asked about their album ‘Louder’, being a role model, Ross’ part in ‘The Muppets Most Wanted’ and ask if Ellington and Rydel are secretly dating…. (they don’t deny it!).
‘Louder’ is out in Ireland and the UK on April 4th. Check out some of their music videos after the jump!
