Video: Liam Neeson's hilariously menacing audition to play Santa Claus

Liam Neeson has a particular set of skills, but playing Santa Claus appears just outside of his wheelhouse.

On Friday night’s episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Neeson dressed as Jolly Old Saint Nick for a sketch built around the actor’s audition to play a mall Santa.

After threatening to kill the reindeer who ran over grandma, Neeson added a holiday pun to the sketch as a kicker: “Release the Kringle.”
