If the Oscars are looking for a sure-fire way to boost their viewing figures this year, perhaps they should think about getting Liam Neeson on stage for a live Q&A. If the 66-year-old star will confess to having once contemplated racist murder in the dreary environs of a press junket, then who knows what might come out in the febrile atmosphere of Hollywood's Dolby Theatre?

Neeson made the extraordinary admission in an interview published earlier this week, in the context of discussing the "primal" human thirst for revenge. (His latest film, Cold Pursuit, is about a snowplough driver exacting vigilante justice.)
