Liam Neeson Thinking Of Converting To Islam?

Update: 1/15/15 Apparently, Liam Neeson is not converting to Islam.

Northern Irish actor Liam Neeson is thinking of converting to Islam?

According to the Australian 'Herald Sun' he is. The 59-year-old Catholic was so inspired by the Islamic call to prayer and the beautiful mosques, while recently filming in Istanbul, that he's toying with the idea of converting to Islam.

"The call to prayer happens five times a day, and for the first week, it drives you crazy, and then it just gets into your spirit, and it's the most beautiful, beautiful thing.

“There are 4000 mosques in the city. Some are just stunning, and it really makes me think about becoming a Muslim."

Either he had one pint too many or he's still grieving the death of his beloved Natasha Richardson, but really, Liam?

It seems he has been challenged of late:

"I was reared a Catholic, but I think every day we ask ourselves, not consciously, what are we doing on this planet? What's it all about? I'm constantly reading books on God or the absence of God and atheism," he said.

And is obviously spiritually seeking, but I hope he finds his way to some other spiritual practice.
