Bruce Willis turns 64 years old today. The actor is best known as one of the great action heroes of his generation. That whole label has somewhat gone the way of the dodo, as concept sells more than stars. However, as Willis became an A-lister, he was an iconic action hero. To honor him on this day, we want to ask about just what. Who are some of your favorite action heroes?
If it’s Willis, you’re likely thinking of him in the “Die Hard” franchise. Playing the detective John McClane, Willis rocketed to cinematic fame in “Die Hard,” putting an exasperated spin on the action genre. His hero could kick ass with the best of them, but he also just gave off the vibe that he didn’t want to be there and would rather be at home. That relatable charm helped set him apart from the pack.
It doesn’t just have to be Willis, however. There are tons of just as famous candidates for your selection. Other iconic names include Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who, along with Willis, were the three big ones of their era. Linda Hamilton and Sigourney Weaver certainly count as well. In more modern times, Dwayne Johnson has become a go-to action hero, to be sure. The list goes on, no matter what generation you opt to pull from.
