Bruce Willis : Die Hard Movie Star

Bruce Willis (born March 19, 1955 as Walter Bruce Willis in Idar-Oberstein, West Germany) is a European American actor and singer.

Bruce Willis : Career

He first found fame with his starring role in the hit TV series Moonlighting (198589) establishing himself as a comedic actor. However, it was his then-unexpected turn in the Die Hard series that catapulted him to fame. He also was successful in his turn as the voice of little Mikey in the Look Who's Talking series. In the late-1980s, Willis enjoyed moderate success as a recording artist, recording an album of pop-blues entitled The Return of Bruno, which included the hit single "Respect Yourself", promoted by a Spinal Tap-like rockumentary parody featuring scenes of him performing at famous events including Woodstock. Follow-up recordings were not as successful, though Willis does return to the recording studio from time to time.
In the early 90s, Willis' career suffered a moderate slump starring in flops such as The Bonfire of the Vanities and Hudson Hawk, among others. However, in 1994 he had a supporting role in Quentin Tarantino's acclaimed Pulp Fiction, which gave a new boost to his career. In 1996 he produced the cartoon Bruno the Kid which featured a CGI representation of himself. He went on to play the lead roles in Twelve Monkeys and The Fifth Element. However, by the end of the '90s, his career had fallen into another slump with critically panned films like The Jackal, Mercury Rising and Breakfast of Champions, saved only by the success of the Michael Bay-directed Armageddon which was the highest grossing film of 1998 in the US. In 1999, Willis achieved what could be considered the biggest success of his career with his starring role in M. Night Shyamalan's debut film, The Sixth Sense. The film was both a commercial and critical success and launched Willis' career to a new level of stardom.
He once had to appear in the hit sitcom Friends without pay, because he lost a bet to Matthew Perry, his co-star in The Whole Nine Yards and its sequel The Whole Ten Yards. He has finished filming the thriller Perfect Stranger, opposite Halle Berry, and will appear as an unscrupulous farmer in the film version of Fast Food Nation.
He is now filming his return to the role of John McClane in Live Free or Die Hard being directed by Len Wiseman.
