MERCURY RISING

BRUCE WILLIS (FBI Agent Art Jeffries) has demonstrated incredible versatility in a career that includes such diverse characterizations as the ruthless assassin in The Jackal, the heroic taxi driver in Luc Besson's sci-fi epic The Fifth Element, the prizefighter in Quentin Tarantino's Oscar®-winning Pulp Fiction, the philandering contractor in Robert Benton's acclaimed Nobody's Fool, the traumatized Vietnam vet in Norman Jewison's In Country and his signature role, detective John McClane, in the Die Hard trilogy.

Following studies at Montclair State College's prestigious theater program, the New Jersey native perfected his craft on-stage in several off-Broadway plays and countless commercials before landing the leading role in Sam Shepard's stage drama, Fool for Love.

Willis earned international stardom and several acting awards, including the Emmy and Golden Globe honors, for his starring role as private eye David Addison in the hit TV series, "Moonlighting". At the same time, he debuted on the motion picture screen in Blake Edwards' romantic comedy, Blind Date, and reunited with Edwards on his nostalgic mystery, Sunset.

In 1988, the actor created the role of John McClane in the blockbuster film, Die Hard, reprising the character in Die Hard 2: Die Harder and Die Hard With A Vengeance. His wide array of film roles also includes Bonfire of the Vanities, Billy Bathgate, Hudson Hawk, The Last Boy Scout, Mortal Thoughts, Death Becomes Her, Striking Distance, North, The Player, the voice of the wise-cracking baby in Look Who's Talking and its sequel Look Who's Talking Too, and the anthology drama Four Rooms.

He has recently completed filming the starring role in the action-adventure Armageddon, as well as a role in Marshall Law. He is presently in production on Breakfast of Champions, based on the novel by Kurt Vonnegut.

An accomplished musician as well, Willis recorded the 1986 Motown album, Bruce Willis: The Return of Bruno, which went platinum and contained the #5 Billboard hit, "Respect Yourself." Three years later, he released a second album, If It Don't Kill You, It Just Makes You Stronger. He is also one of the partners in the popular Planet Hollywood restaurant chain.
