Bruce Willis Targets Terrorists with $1 Million

by | November 15, 2005 | Comments

Action star Bruce Willis has fought countless terrorists on-screen — now, the bald, bachelor A-lister is offering $1 million in real-life bounty to any civilian who turns in al-Qaeda leaders Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, or Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

Willis, a long-standing Republican and supporter of the Iraq war, made the offer via telephone on MSNBC’s "Rita Cosby: Live and Direct" show. The actor endorsed the efforts of embedded independent blogger Michael Yon and the Deuce Four Army battalion Yon has accompanied in Iraq, and alluded to plans to make a Deuce Four movie. Willis himself has previously visited armed forces in Iraq and is critical of unbalanced media coverage in America, what he says neglects to show the "really good things happening in Iraq."

This isn’t the first time the erstwhile John McClane has dipped his toes into the political arena. Back in 2003, while entertaining troops with his band, The Accelerator, Willis made a similar offer of $1 million for the capture of Saddam Hussein; it is, however, unclear whether he ever made good on the hefty pledge once the former dictator was apprehended.

In any event, while he waits to award his cash prize and single-handedly defeat the forces of terrorism worldwide, Willis has a slew of upcoming projects to sate movie-going audiences: "Alpha Dog," co-starring Justin Timberlake and Emile Hirsch; "16 Blocks" with Mos Def; and, finally, the long-awaited fourth installment of Willis’ most famous role — "Die Hard 4.0."
