In spite of that, Willis chose not to renew his contract with the company when he decided to stop drinking alcohol in 1988.
Edwards cast him again to play the real-life cowboy actor Tom Mix in Sunset (1988).
"You could see Bruce glaring at him, it was kind of funny," an eyewitness shared with E! "He looked like he wanted to say, ‘Hey, that's enough.'" LOL!
In the late 1980s, Willis enjoyed moderate success as a recording artist, recording an album of pop-blues titled The Return of Bruno, which included the hit single "Respect Yourself" featuring The Pointer Sisters.
The LP was promoted by a Spinal Tap–like rockumentary parody featuring scenes of Willis performing at famous events including Woodstock.
After working as a private investigator (a role he would play in the television series Moonlighting and the 1991 film The Last Boy Scout), Willis turned to acting.
He enrolled in the Drama Program at Montclair State University, where he was cast in the class production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
He released a version of the Drifters song "Under the Boardwalk" as a second single; it got to No.
2 in the UK Top 40 but was less successful in the U. Willis returned to the recording studio several times afterward.It is possible that they were enjoying one of many dates, but the eyes on them definitely saw what appeared to be wooing and wanting.Also, you know we don't like to gossip or spread even one rumor, but we just want to keep you all on top of who's hooking up with who as best we can.However, it was his then-unexpected turn in the film Die Hard (1988) as John Mc Clane that catapulted him to movie star and action hero status.Following his success with Die Hard, he had a leading role in the drama In Country as Vietnam veteran Emmett Smith and also provided the voice for a talking baby in Look Who's Talking, as well as its sequel, Look Who's Talking Too.We know you like the juice, so we strive to keep your cup full :).
