Liam Neeson has reinvented himself as an action man in recent years, but if this new video is anything to go by, he just can't shake his Taken persona.

In a skit for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Neeson does his best - or, rather, worst - impersonation of Santa, with dark results.

Neeson growls his way through iconic Christmas carols, delivering lines like, "I see you when you're sleeping," in a way that would scare small children.

When he is told to "make it jolly," his smile could send chills.

While on The Late Show, Neeson also revealed he would be open to making a fourth movie in the Taken franchise, which has made more than NZ$1.3 billion at the box office.
