Liam Joins BBC Comedy Show Line-up

Co Antrim's Liam Neeson and actress Helena Bonham Carter are to join the cast of the BBC Two comedy, Life's Too Short.
The show is a fake documentary from the creators of The Office and Extras, made by BBC Two/HBO for transmission in autumn this year.
Written and directed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the seven-part sitcom follows the life and times of showbiz dwarf, Warwick Davis.
With his career on the slide, a massive tax bill caused by his useless accountant, and a wife who's divorcing him, Warwick has no choice but to open his doors to a film crew 24/7.
The show is also starring Warwick Davis, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the rest of the cast includes Johnny Depp, Sting, Steve Carell, Cat Deeley, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Les Dennis, Keith Chegwin and Shaun Williamson.
