Liam Neeson is a force to be reckoned with. We've seen him kick butt in not one, but three Taken films, where he basically will do anything to protect his family, including his on-screen daughter portrayed by actress Maggie Grace. But as we learned on TBS' Conan last night, Neeson is just as badass in his films as he is in real life.

Grace guested on Conan O'Brien's late-night talk show, where they chatted about how Neeson's fatherly ways extended from the big screen to her own life. She said that when she was having a tough time over a breakup with an ex-boyfriend, Neeson, like the knight in shining armor that he is, stepped in to help her out—by prank-calling the dude. And the best part is that Grace recorded the call.

Neeson pretended to be his Taken character, former CIA operative Bryan Mills, and warned Grace's ex about the scary things that would come if he continued to be a dork. And yes, he mentions his "particular set of skills" that he is infamously known to have.

The recording of the stellar phone call prank starts at the 1:06-minute mark in the video below:
