EARLY LIFE

Willis attended Penns Grove High School in his hometown, where he encountered issues with a stutter . He was nicknamed "Buck-Buck" by his schoolmates. Finding it easy to express himself on stage and losing his stutter in the process, Willis began performing on stage; his high school activities were marked by such things as the drama club and being student council president.

After he graduated from high school in 1973, Willis took a job as a security guard at the Salem Nuclear Power Plant and transported work crews at the DuPont

In 1985, he was the guest actor in the first episode of the 1980s revival of The Twilight Zone , " Shatterday ". He auditioned for the role of David Addison Jr. of the television series Moonlighting (1985–1989), competing against 3,000 other actors for the position. The starring role, opposite Cybill Shepherd , helped to establish him as a comedic actor, with the show lasting five seasons winning him an Emmy Award
Emmy Award
for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor - Television Series Musical or Comedy . During the height of the show's success, beverage maker Seagram hired Willis as the pitchman for their Golden Wine Cooler products. The advertising campaign paid the rising star between $5–7 million over two years. In spite of that, Willis chose not to renew his contract with the company when he decided to stop drinking alcohol in 1988.

Willis had his first lead role in a feature film in the 1987 Blake Edwards film Blind Date , with Kim Basinger and John Larroquette . Edwards cast him again to play the real-life cowboy actor Tom Mix

in Sunset (1988). However, it was his then-unexpected turn in the film Die Hard (1988) as John McClane that catapulted him to movie star and action hero status. He performed most of his own stunts in the film, and the film grossed $138,708,852 worldwide. Following his success with Die Hard, he had a leading role in the drama In Country

1990S

Having acquired major personal success and pop culture influence playing John McClane in Die Hard, Willis reprised his role in the sequels Die Hard 2 (1990) and Die Hard with a Vengeance (1995). These first three installments in the Die Hard series grossed over US$700 million internationally and propelled Willis to the first rank of Hollywood action stars.

In the early 1990s, Willis's career suffered a moderate slump, as he starred in flops such as The Bonfire of the Vanities (1990), he gained more success with Striking Distance (1993) but flopped again with Color of Night (1994): another box office failure, it was savaged by critics but did well in the home video market and became one of the Top 20 most-rented films in the United States in 1995.

In 1994, he had a supporting role as Butch Coolidge in Quentin Tarantino 's acclaimed Pulp Fiction
Pulp Fiction
, which gave a new boost to his career. In 1996, he was the executive producer and star of the cartoon Bruno the Kid which featured a CGI representation of himself.

In the movie, he plays a drunken criminal named "Muddy Grimes", who mistakenly sends Judge's titular characters to kill his wife, Dallas (voiced by Moore). He went on to play the lead roles in 12 Monkeys (1995) and The Fifth Element (1997). However, by the end of the 1990s, his career had fallen into another slump with critically panned films, like The Jackal , Mercury Rising , and Breakfast of Champions saved only by the success of the Michael Bay -directed Armageddon which was the highest-grossing film of 1998 worldwide. The same year his voice and likeness were featured in the PlayStation
PlayStation
video game Apocalypse . In 1999, Willis then went on to the starring role in M. Night Shyamalan 's film, The Sixth Sense . The film was both a commercial and critical success and helped to increase interest in his acting career.

RELIGIOUS VIEWS

Willis was, at one point, Lutheran (specifically Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod ), but no longer practices. In a July 1998 interview with George magazine, he stated:

Organized religions in general, in my opinion, are dying forms. ... They were all very important when we didn't know why the sun moved, why weather changed, why hurricanes occurred, or volcanoes happened. ... Modern religion is the end trail of modern mythology. But there are people who interpret the Bible
Bible
literally. Literally! I choose not to believe that's the way. And that's what makes America cool, you know?

POLITICAL VIEWS

In 1988, Willis and then-wife Demi Moore campaigned for Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis 's Presidential bid. Four years later, he supported President George H. W. Bush for reelection and was an outspoken critic of Bill Clinton
Bill Clinton
. However, in 1996, he declined to endorse Clinton's Republican opponent Bob Dole
Bob Dole
, because Dole had criticized Demi Moore for her role in the film Striptease . Willis was an invited speaker at the 2000 Republican National Convention , and supported George W. Bush that year. He did not make any contributions or public endorsements in the 2008 presidential campaign . In several June 2007 interviews, he declared that he maintains some Republican ideologies.

In 2006, he said that the United States should intervene more into Colombia
Colombia
, in order to end the drug trafficking. In several interviews Willis has said that he supports large salaries for teachers and police officers, and said he is disappointed in the United States foster care system as well as treatment of Native Americans . Willis also stated that he is a supporter of gun rights , stating, "Everyone has a right to bear arms. If you take guns away from legal gun owners, then the only people who have guns are the bad guys."

In February 2006, Willis appeared in Manhattan
Manhattan
to talk about his film 16 Blocks with reporters. One reporter attempted to ask Willis about his opinion on the current government, but was interrupted by Willis in mid-sentence: "I'm sick of answering this fucking question. I'm a Republican only as far as I want a smaller government , I want less government intrusion. I want them to stop shitting on my money and your money and tax dollars that we give 50 percent of every year. I want them to be fiscally responsible and I want these goddamn lobbyists out of Washington. Do that and I'll say I'm a Republican. I hate the government, OK? I'm apolitical. Write that down. I'm not a Republican."

Willis' name was in an advertisement in the Los Angeles
Los Angeles
Times on August 17, 2006, that condemned Hamas

MILITARY INTERESTS

Throughout his film career, Willis has depicted several military characters in films such as In Country
In Country
, The Siege
The Siege
, Hart\'s War , Tears of the Sun , Grindhouse , and G.I. Joe: Retaliation . Growing up in a military family , Willis has publicly sold Girl Scout cookies for the United States armed forces. In 2002, Willis's then 8-year-old daughter, Tallulah, suggested that he purchase Girl Scout cookies to send to troops. Willis purchased 12,000 boxes of cookies, and they were distributed to sailors aboard USS John F. Kennedy and other troops stationed throughout the Middle East at the time. Willis meets with Brigadier General Albert Bryant, Jr and deployed soldiers from the 4th Infantry Division , in Tikrit
Tikrit
, Iraq, during his 2003 USO tour

In 2003, Willis visited Iraq

as part of the USO tour, singing to the troops with his band, The Accelerators. Willis considered joining the military to help fight the second Iraq
Iraq
war , but was deterred by his age. It was believed he offered $1 million to any noncombatant who turns in terrorist leaders Osama bin Laden , Ayman al-Zawahiri , or Abu Musab al-Zarqawi ; in the June 2007 issue of Vanity Fair , however, he clarified that the statement was made hypothetically and not meant to be taken literally. Willis has also criticized the media for its coverage of the war, complaining that the press were more likely to focus on the negative aspects of the war:

I went to Iraq
Iraq
because what I saw when I was over there was soldiers—young kids for the most part—helping people in Iraq; helping getting the power turned back on, helping get hospitals open, helping get the water turned back on and you don't hear any of that on the news. You hear, 'X number of people were killed today,' which I think does a huge disservice. It's like spitting on these young men and women who are over there fighting to help this country.

Willis stated in 2005 that he wanted to "make a pro-war film in which American soldiers will be depicted as brave fighters for freedom and democracy." The film would follow members of Deuce Four, the 1st Battalion, 24th Infantry , who spent considerable time in Mosul
Mosul
and were decorated heavily for it. The film is to be based on the writings of blogger Michael Yon , a former United States Army Special
Special
Forces soldier who was embedded with Deuce Four and sent regular dispatches about their activities. Willis described the plot of the film as "these guys who do what they are asked for very little money to defend and fight for what they consider to be freedom."

IN POPULAR CULTURE

In 1996, Roger Director, a writer and producer from Moonlighting, wrote a roman à clef on Willis titled A Place to Fall. Cybill Shepherd wrote in her 2000 autobiography, Cybill Disobedience, that Willis became angry at Director when he read the book and discovered the character had been written as a "neurotic, petulant actor." In 1998, Willis participated in Apocalypse , a PlayStation
PlayStation
video game. The game was originally announced to feature Willis as a sidekick, not as the main character. The company reworked the game using Willis's likeness and voice and changed the game to use him as the main character. In Quebec, Canada, Willis' voice has been overdubbed in French, in 28 of his films, by Jean-Luc Montminy .
