Celebrities read Trump indictments on MSNBC podcast: Liam Neeson is ‘channeling Jack Smith here’ – Latest International Breaking News Today

Liam Neeson and Glenn Close were among the celebrities who’ve offered their voices to read excerpts of the indictments against former President Trump for an ongoing MSNBC podcast.

MSNBC’s “Prosecuting Donald Trump” podcast covers “the historic indictments” against ther former president as they go to trial. Thursday’s episode used Neeson and Close to read some of the charges against the former president as special counsel Jack Smith and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, respectively.

Co-hosts Andrew Weissman and Melissa Murray repeatedly praised the actors for bringing personality to the “characters” of the attorneys.

“I just felt like Liam Neeson was channeling Jack Smith here. It was like Jack Smith talking to America but in an Irish brogue and possibly with the ability to create a bomb out of a Snickers bar and save his daughter all at the same time,” Murray said.

Weissman commented, “I think Glenn Close could probably read anything, and we’d be like, ‘that’s really serious.’”

Weissman and Murray used the actor readings to promote their new book on the Trump indictments.

Actors Peter Coyote and Renée Elise Goldsberry appeared on Friday’s episode to read excerpts from the Florida and Georgia indictments against Trump.
