Jeffrey Wright to Be Next "Die Hard" Villain?

by | October 4, 2006 | Comments

The "Die Hard" series is well-known for giving Bruce Willis nasty villains played by good actors: Alan Rickman, Bill Sadler, Jeremy Irons… And now comes word that Jeffrey Wright might be pulling villain duty for John McClane’s fourth manic misadventure.

From the humorously titled website "Since I wasn’t able to actually be in my hometown of Baltimore for the set of "Live Free or Die Hard," I sent out my feelers for at least a few scoops on the fourth installment of the Bruce Willis action flick. And wouldn’t you know it, has some major news coming out of the Len Wiseman-directed flick.

Jeffrey Wright ("Syriana," "Angels in America") is going to be that one guy making John McClane’s life a living hell? And it would only make sense, as production moves from Baltimore to Wright’s hometown of Washington DC.

Right now, all we know is he’ll be the head of an agency; McClane will then be leading the team to stop him. A call back from Wright’s people hasn’t been returned to confirm any extra plot details."
