Liam Neeson is lucky to be alive — and he knows it. The Oscar-nominated actor, who broke his pelvis in a July motorcycle crash, told Access Hollywood that he "could have been dead. I could have been [confined] to a wheelchair, but I'm not. I'm gonna make a full recovery." The Star Wars thesp then added, "The force is with me." Neeson is still undergoing physical therapy, but plans to be back in fighting form in January, when he starts work on Martin Scorsese's The Gangs of New York. "I play Leonardo DiCaprio's dad," he said. "I'm just playing a cameo." — Michael Ausiello
