Four Actors In The Running to Be Bruce Willis' Son in A Good Day To Die Hard

Four Actors In The Running to Be Bruce Willis' Son in <em>A Good Day To Die Hard</em>

Deadline is reporting that Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul, Hunger Games' Liam Hemsworth, James Badge, and D.J. Cotrona are up for the coveted role of John McClane Jr.

Nothing against the other contenders but Aaron Paul is a superb actor and the Die Hard franchise would be crazy to pass on him. He is a feisty little ball of energy. And has a smoldering intensity that rises to the surface like steam from a boiling pot. He recently won a well deserved Emmy for his portrayal of Jesse Pinkman in AMC's brilliant show, Breaking Bad.

He is an actor that plays much bigger then his small frame would have you believe, he spits out his dialogue with sheer venom when he needs to be tough and nasty. While he also has the ability to show a softer gentler side that is so astonishingly good it actually makes the viewer sympathetic to a criminal, methamphetamine cook.

In the young actor category, a role to die for is John McClane Jr, the son of Bruce Willis’ indestructible cop character in A Good Day To Die Hard, which John Moore will direct in Russia early next year for 20th Century Fox.

I’m told the studio, Moore and Willis are down to these four actors for the role: Hunger Games’ Liam Hemsworth; Emmy-winning Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul (scheduling on his series could pose a problem); The Pacific star James Badge Dale; and D.J. Cotrona, who was a regular in the series Detroit 1-8-7 and is currently shooting G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation. The studio would not comment. - DEADLINE
