| Burly, thick-featured, and balding, Bruce Willis looks as if he would be perfectly at home behind the wheel of an 18-wheeler. Instead, he is one of Hollywood's most popular action heroes, thanks in part to the success of the Die Hard series. But to peg Willis into such a narrow category is to deny his versatility, for he has proven himself at home in lead and supporting roles in dramas, comedies, romances, and adventures. Though he was born on an American military base in West Germany on March 19, 1955, Willis was raised in New Jersey from the age of two. As a youth, Willis had a stammer that only disappeared when he was performing, something he continued to do during high school as the class clown. After his graduation, Willis worked several odd jobs and played the harmonica for a local blues band by the name of Loose Goose. While attending Montclair State College, he performed in a production of Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and his love of acting blossomed. He spent much time in New York trying out for various off-Broadway productions, finally succeeding in 1977. He left school to work in the play Heaven on Earth, but his subsequent acting career was spotty, with a commercial here and a small theatrical role there. However, in 1984 he landed the lead in an off-Broadway production of Fool for Love and then, during a trip to Los Angeles, was selected out of 3,000 auditioners to co-star in Cybill Shepherd's romantic sitcom Moonlighting as the egotistical, self-assured private detective David Addison. Though the show experienced trouble behind the scenes, in large part due to a long-running conflict between Willis, Shepherd, and the show's creator, Glenn Gordon Caron, it was a major hit during most of its 1985-1989 run. In the early '80s, Willis had bit parts in two major features, but did not make his official big-screen debut until he starred opposite Kim Basinger in the Blake Edwards farce Blind Date (1987). He again worked with Edwards for his sophomore effort playing cowboy star Tom Mix opposite James Garner's Wyatt Earp in the Western spoof Sunset (1988). Both films reaped modest profits, but did little in the way of making Willis a major star. Then came Die Hard (1989), in which Willis played John McClane, a low-key New York cop who takes on the group of international terrorists that have taken an L.A. office hostage—an office where his estranged wife happens to be attending a Christmas party. The movie was a slick, fast-paced, collection of great stunts and even better one-liners. Its tremendous popularity put Willis on Hollywood's A-list, and naturally suggested that Willis would have followed up his success with another blockbuster, but he instead appeared in Norman Jewison's drama In Country as a psychologically damaged Vietnam vet who must care for his orphaned niece. Willis next lent his vocal talents to the voice of the baby in the inventive comedy Look Who's Talking (1989) and its sequel, Look Who's Talking Too (1990) before reprising the role of John McClane for Die Hard 2 in 1990. In 1991, he made his screenwriting debut for the much-panned Hudson Hawk. Throughout the mid-90s, Willis chose a disperate variety of films to participate in, with mixed resultes. Films like The Color of Night (1994) and Four Rooms (1995) slipped by with little attention, while others such as Pulp Fiction (1994) and 12 Monkeys (1995) were almost instantly iconic—leaving marks on American cinema. He proved himself unafraid to mold his abilities to fit virtually any genre, quite notably with his fun performance in Luc Besson's sci-fi pop epic, The Fifth Element (1997).In 1998, Willis returned to his action hero roots with the big-budget Michael Bay pic Armageddon, but following this success, he opted to explore subtler work once again, this time in the form of the long-delayed production of Kurt Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions (1999). Though Breakfast failed to live up to the expectations likely imposed by comparisons to Vonnegut's source material and remained largely unseen, it was Willis' next small project that would find him, as well as a relatively unknown child actor named Haley Joel Osment, in what would become one of the most phenomenally successful sleeper-hits in box-office history. As a haunted child psychologist who reaches out to a troubled young boy harboring a terrifying secret, Willis brought a subtle compassion to his role in newcomer director M. Night Shymalan's The Sixth Sense (1999). He continued to pursue varied roles with the coming of the new millennium, including a recurring role on the wildly popular sit-com Friends, and a reteaming with Shymalan in 2000 for the eerie yet sensitive Unbreakable. A particularly big hit for the actor came that same year when he parodied his tough-guy image as a hit-man hiding out in suburbia in The Whole Nine Yards. Increasingly drawn to the porduction aspect of filmmaking, Willis continued to develope his skills behind the camera as producer of such features as The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course (2002) and Hostage (2005). Turning up in such military themed features as Hart's War (2002) and Tears of the Sun (2003) in the early years of the new millennium, Willis would eventually step back into the role of Jimmy 'The Tuip' Tudeski for the sequel The Whole Ten Yards. Willis struck gold with both audiences and critics with his role in Robert Rodriguez's adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel series Sin City (2005). Also starring, Mickey Rourke and Clive Owen, the episodic comic-book-come-to-life found Willis as an ill-fated grizzled cop convicted for a crime he didn't commit. Another high-profile police officer role came a short time later, with Richard Donner hostage thriller 16 Blocks (2006), but the actor had long since proven his distaste for remaining in a given genre for very long, and soon later joined the cast of the Michael Polish drama The Astronaut Farmer (2006).In addition to acting, Willis has recorded a music CD, produced movies and a children's animated show, and taken part in the Planet Hollywood venture.
