Liverpool Claims Superstars Both On & Off The Pitch

Image for Liverpool Claims Superstars Both On & Off The Pitch

Daniel Craig LiverpoolIt’s been a special season for the Reds so far. Brendan Rodgers’ men have been dominant so far this season and only slip ups against Arsenal and Southampton have really shown any signs of us slowing down. But it’s not just on the pitch Liverpool are flying the flag. It’s been a great year for those famous faces that love a trip to Anfield.

Brendan Rodgers recently revealed that his famous envelope speech during documentary series Being: Liverpool was just a ruse. And whilst the club’s run on the small screen, didn’t go down too well, these guys are more than making up for it in the entertainment industry.

Damian Lewis

Aside from the terrible love-letter two years ago with the abomination which was Will, Damian Lewis quickly turned it around and has become a major star. Playing the USMC Sergeant Nick Brody in Homeland, like the Reds, he is at the top of his game.

And it doesn’t stop there for the star who regularly competes in charity games. Lewis is set to star alongside James Franco and Nicole Kidman in Queen of the Desert, due to hit our screens in 2015.

Liam Neeson

With a role in Anchorman 2 coming up, the 61-year-old actor, will almost certainly be rocking the 1980’s Reds look come December. Ron Burgundy is already rocking the Rush moustache. Neeson with the Hansen hair? We think so.

Taking to football in later life, Neeson has been visiting Anfield with his children for a few years and was once a talent himself. Spotted by Dublin side Bohemian FC, the actor didn’t quite manage a career in the game, but when you can you’re a three-time Golden Globe nominee, it probably doesn’t matter.

Daniel Craig

Not many teams can boast Bond as a follower. Daniel Craig is as lethal on screen as Luis Suarez is on the turf. With two more Bond’s on the way, the 45-year-old from Chester has also tipped Liverpool captain Gerrard to follow in his footsteps.

Asked if he’d prefer to be Bond or Liverpool skipper, the actor said, “Well I don’t think I could keep up any more so Bond will do but Steven Gerrard would make a good Bond.

“He is a good leader so you know what, seriously, who knows?”

Theo Jorgenson

This poker superstar is earning as much money as a Premier League footballer, and has been following the club since the 1980’s. PokerStars Pro Theo Jorgensen has earned over $3.5 million throughout his career, including an impressive run in the European Poker Tour which saw him finish in the top four, something which his beloved side, will be looking to replicate.

Craig Charles

The funky-soul show DJ and Corrie favourite is said to have gone down to Melwood and collect autographs during the Keegan era and has been an avid Reds fan ever since. On the books at Tranmere Rovers, the Liverpudlian has an affinity with football and will no doubt be playing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ in the taxi-office after a top-four finish this season.
