Actor Nate Parker appears in the new Liam Neeson action flick, Non-Stop. During a private Hollywood screening of the film this week, he sat with HipHollywood to discuss his role… and if he could take on the action-hero star.

“You know? I think I could. I think I could,” Parker said with a smile. “I wrestled in college, and he boxed when he was in school or when he was younger. If I could take him with me on every flight, I’d do it. If something went wrong, I’d have some one to have my back.”

In addition to Parker, the film stars Julianne Moore, Michelle Dockery, and Lupita Nyong’o. Non-Stop is in theaters now.
