Former “Moonlighting” and “Die Hard” star Bruce Willis’ acting career is basically washed up. So is his social life–no Baywatch Brooke, no Demi. So, with too much time on his hands, he’s entering a new industry: bounty hunting Osama Bin Laden.
Willis, himself, is not actually trying to find Bin Laden. But he told MSNBC’s Rita Cosby that he is offering a reward of $1,000,000 for the person who finds/hunts down Bin Laden. Since no-one turned in Bin Laden for the $25 million the U.S. is offering, it’s hard to see that they’d do it for the $1 million Willis is offering.
So what’s the point? I’m not sure–other than some free publicity for a flagging acting career. When I’ve called for leftie Hollywood celeb airheads to stay out of politics, their leftie (equally airheaded) fans have asked if I’ll ask the scintilla of Republican “conservative” actors to stay out of politics, too. The Willis case is proof that I’m consistent.
Willis is a Republican. But in this case, even though the cause is noble, I say to him, “Stick to acting.”
On that note, I do applaud what he is trying to do in Hollywood:
He’s in talks to make a movie about the “Deuce Four,” soldiers whose heroic exploits have been chronicled by embedded blogger Michael Yon. “I am baffled to understand why the things that I saw happening in Iraq, really good things happening in Iraq, are not being reported on,” Willis told Cosby.
Could Willis become the truthful, right-wing version of Michael Moore?
