BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS

BRUCE WILLIS (Dwayne Hoover) has demonstrated incredible versatility in his career with such diverse roles as the action-hero in the popular "Die Hard" film series, a meek, classic anti-hero in "Death Becomes Her," the prizefighter in Quentin Tarantino's Academy Award¨ winning "Pulp Fiction," and the traumatized Vietnam vet in Norman Jewison's "In Country."

Willis, raised in New Jersey, attended Montclair State College for its highly regarded theater program. He was soon cast in several commercials and off-Broadway plays, but his acting breakthrough came when he replaced the lead in Sam Shephard's stage drama, "Fool for Love."

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." In 1989, he released a second album, If It Don't Kill You, It Just Makes You Stronger.

He then landed the starring role as private eye David Addison in the phenomenally popular TV series, "Moonlighting," which earned him an Emmy and Golden Globe Award and launched him into international star status. At the same time, he made his feature film debut in Blake Edwards' romantic comedy, "Blind Date," and reunited with Edwards in his murder mystery "Sunset." In 1988, Willis created the role of John McClane in the blockbuster film, "Die Hard," later reprising the character in the successful follow up films "Die Hard 2: Die Harder" and "Die Hard With A Vengeance."

Willis previously worked with Alan Rudolph starring opposite Demi Moore and Glenne Headly in the psychological drama, "Mortal Thoughts." Other notable films include: "Nobody's Fool," "Twelve Monkeys," "The Fifth Element," "The Jackal," "Mercury Rising" and Touchstone Pictures' action-adventure blockbuster "Armageddon" produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.

Willis currently stars in Hollywood Pictures'/Spyglass Entertainment's colossal summer hit, the psychological thriller "The Sixth Sense."
