THE SIEGE

BRUCE WILLIS (General William Devereaux) has had a career of incredible versatility, portraying such diverse characterizations as a heroic taxi driver in Luc Besson's sci-fi epic "The Fifth Element," the reluctant tormented time traveler in "Twelve Monkeys," the prize fighter in Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction," the philandering contractor in Robert Benton's "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 Stage College's prestigious theater program, the New Jersey native perfected his craft on stage in several Off-Broadway productions and numerous television commercials before landing the leading role in Sam Shepard's stage drama, "Fool for Love."

Willis then eamed international stardom and several acting awards, including Emmy and Golden Globe honors, for his starring role as private eye 'David Addison' in the hit television series, "Moonlighting." At the same time, he made his film debut in Blake Edwards' romantic comedy "Blind Date" and reunited with Edwards on the nostalgic mystery, "Sunset."

In 1988, Willis starred in the blockbuster film "Die Hard," and later reprised his character in "Die Hard 2" and "Die Hard With a Vengeance." His other films include "Hudson Hawk," "The Last Boy Scout," "Mortal Thoughts," "Death Becomes Her," "Striking Distance," "The Player" and "Last Man Standing." Willis also was the voice of the wise-cracking baby in the hit comedies "Look Who's Talking" and "Look Who's Talking Too."

Most recently, Willis starred in "Armageddon," "Mercury Rising" and "The Jackal." He also made a well-received cameo appearance on the 1997 season finale of the hit television series "Mad About You."

In addition, Willis has his own Los Angeles-based production company, Flying Heart, which recently produced the forthcoming release "Breakfast of Champions," based on the novel by Kurt Vonnegut. Willis also stars in the film, directed by Alan Rudolph.
