Liam Neeson's iconic Taken lines uttered in his distinctive tones have been imitated hundreds of times - but has Seth MacFarlane just done the best impression yet?

The Family Guy and Ted creator honed his own particular set of skills as he was a guest on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and played a game of impressions.

The Wheel of Impressions game required him to do impressions of famous people in different situations.

And the first one he was tasked with was impersonating the north Antrim brogue of Ballymena-born Liam Neeson talking about setting up cable.

Channeling Neeson's Taken character he said: "I have a very particular set of channels

"If you'd like to purchase these channels, I'll come to your house and install your cable.

"And that will be the end of it. If you don't, I will look for you, I will find you and I will kill you."

Previously Holywood actor Jamie Dornan took on Jimmy Fallon in a battle of accents reading excerpts from Fifty Shades of Grey.
