Does he get to do any sexy scenes with Anne Vyalitsyna ?

Might bring a whole new meaning to die hard...

They should have stopped after the first one.

You get tired of Willis bleeding in a T-shirt after a while.

I shared a few scenes with Willis in DIE HARD 2, when I first got in to the industry. He stayed in character the entire time (”method”). We were basically interacting with “John McClain” between takes, for two days, which I found to be surreal.

I’m female. Every time I see Bruce Willis in anything (at least anything he’s done since about 1984), I think, “Why is Jerry Doyle using that flat voice and not moving his face? And golly, he’s suddenly looking old ... no wait, that’s the other guy, Bruce Willis!”

I watched two. The second one was so bad, I never wnt to another.

The idea that a plane couldn’t land at Dulles and they all were stuck in the air was so flimsy as to be ridiculous, with Reagan, Richmond, BWI, Andrews, and Pax River all only 5 minutes away.

...not to mention that ILS antennae are FIXED in place, so you CANNOT move the glideslope the way they depicted, in order to crash a landing airplane!
Oh and the whole “we’re gonna keep you from talking to the airplanes overhead”? Excuse me while I run to Radio Shack and pick up a handheld VHF!

You expect a little Hokum in every movie, but that one was just plain Horse dung.

The fire that they all landed by. Give me a break.

Depends on how you look at it. For example, I never tire of that scene in Snatch where Brad Pitt gets the snot beaten out of him...

You're thinking of "Indiana Jones and the Fountain of Geritol".

Willis is a method actor? I wouldn’t have guessed.

I still haven’t seen the 4th diehard.

Hi Perdogg, sorry that I did not see your reply. Because Willis was "in character" those three days, the interaction was mostly him testing stares on me (and others). I was only 26 at the time, star struck, and an "extra/intern", so they worked; I was intimidated. On set, day one, I watched the video assist playback of one scene. There was snow on the ground at the old Stapleton (Denver) Airport and very few shoveled paths. I left the video tent to see that Willis was walking my way. One of us was going to have to step off in to the snow. I said "good morning" and he gave the "John McClane I'm going to kill you stare". I stepped back, to let him pass. That's how the rest of those long days went; him using some of us as test monkeys to see if he was in character. I have a great story about something that happened with him and I in a scene together that you might get a kick out of. I'll email it privately.
