We're used to seeing LIam Neeson as the clean-shaven, perfectly-groomed action man, but in a snap that has hit the Internet this week, the actor has taken on a whole different look. 

Liam is playing a lead character in an upcoming Scorsese movie called Silence, and the freshly released picture has caused quite a stir online. 

The Taken actor spoke about his role at the Los Cabos Film Festival and explained that he had to lose 20 pounds for the part. 

"[Scorsese] gives 200 per cent. He's intimidating. He requires absolute silence on the set – if he hears one tiny sound, it shatters it for him."

According to online reports, the new movie will be based on two Jesuit priests in the 17th century who have to face a long road of violence and persecution. 

Adam Driver and Andrew Garfield will star alongside Liam, and Daniel Day Lewis is also rumoured to play a part in the film. 

Silence is planned to debut at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2016.

Jonah Hill has said that he so desperately wanted to work with director Martin Scorsese that he accepted the minimum wage of $60,000 allowed to an actor by the Screen Actors Guild to star as stockbroker Donnie Azoft in The Wolf of Wall Street. 

He was also very eager to sign his contract for the role because he was worried they would change their minds and choose someone else…aww.

Since the role won him his second Oscar nomination, we’re betting it’s a decision he doesn’t regret. Jonah was previously nominated for his role in Moneyball in 2012.

The actor, speaking on The Howard Stern Show yesterday, also voiced his surprise at being nominated for Best Supporting Actor in The Wolf of Wall Street, “I am in compete and total shock … I honestly was not expecting this, on a level you can’t even imagine”.
