Vince McMahonAccording to WorstPreviews.com, film actor Liam Neeson has shot down rumors that he will be playing WWE Chairman Vince McMahon in the upcoming Chris Benoit biopic "Crossface." The following is an excerpt from the article:

"The Grey" director Joe Carnahan jumped in, telling Neeson: "I can't see you doing that dude [McMahon]." Neeson added: "No, I never heard of [the movie]." The actor went on to say that he has no interest in the role, mostly because he knows very little about McMahon, almost nothing about Benoit, and is not a fan of wrestling.

"Crossface" was announced early December. Casting is currently underway with plans of going into production during the fall of this year.
