^ It's Fox. They like cheap hacks who'll do what they told (paging Brett Ratner...).

I found his comments about one-liners and wisecracks bizarre. One of the appealing things about McClane right from the first movie was his readiness to crack wise about the situation he found himself in. I liked how he was always complaining, talking to himself, spluttering and swearing.

Really, Bruce Willis' recent less-is-more acting style, while well suited to some of his more offbeat roles, doesn't lend itself to McClane. And 4.0 suffered from its unwillingness to place the odd profanity in/ out of his mouth. Ned Flanders as McClane?
