Bruce Willis is apparently offering a $1 million bounty on the heads of A-list terrorists like Osama Bin Laden, Aymen Al-Zawahiri and Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi. We read this from WENN:
"Willis announced his reward on U.S. TV show 'Rita Cosby: Live & Direct,' where he also slammed biased media coverage of the Iraq war. He said, '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.'"
As far as we're aware, this is the first instance of a Hollywood celebrity offering a bounty on anything other than Mike Ovitz's head ...
Seriously, though, Mr. Willis is to be applauded for his proactive approach to celebrity activism! And this is certainly preferable to what we usually get from liberal Hollywood celebrities like Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, Michael Moore, et al. After all, what else are all those 7-to 8- figure actor salaries useful for anyhow?
Kudos, too, to Mr. Willis for holding the media responsible for its distorted Iraq coverage. And Willis has actually been to Iraq, unlike most Hollywood celebrities who bloviate on the subject.
Willis is also said to have some interest in adapting 'The Deuce Four,' the story of Iraq soldiers whose heroic exploits have been chronicled by embedded blogger Michael Yon. We certainly hope Willis gets around to doing this, because it would be refreshingly original to actually have a supportive film made about the accomplishments of our brave soldiers serving in Iraq ...
Bruce`s got the right idea.
He obviously isn`t a member of the
F.amous A.ctors G.uild
Too bad it is illegal to offer the bounty for the heads of traitors in the MSM. Would be equally valuable to national security.
Well, a thin ray of hope from Hollyweird shines forth. And perhaps it will brighten the entire valley- no wait, Alec Baldwin's ass is blocking it out. I think he's talking about saving the endangered Iraqi parakeet or something, which is in danger of being ignored.
Bruce is also drawing attention to Michael Yon's blog embedded with the troops as well. Good going Bruce!
Makes a guy want to take up the .300 magnum and go hunting!
Way to go, Mr Willis .... new respect for a Hollywood-ite! Will have to add your name to the 'short list' of good folks in that there town.
There's already a $25 million bounty for bin Laden, so I doubt that Willis' $1 million will make the difference. I guess it's a nice gesture.
Just think, rather than griping and acting like babies about the war, if all of Hollywood would put forth money like Bruce Willis to help the war effort, they might help end it quicker.
Way to grow, Bruce. You're not like the other fruitcases.
Bruce you are one hombre who puts his money where his mouth is!
The Hollywood elite will punish him severely for this.
It appears he could no longer stand for those who slander brave soldiers from their secure penthouse enclaves.

if they do, he doesn't care. I am glad one of them finally spoke up.
Or maybe one of Bruce's ex-wives. Of course I can't remember who he was married to.
