Before becoming an action superstar in his Die Hard films, Bruce Willis’ action-comedy potentials were first seen in his role as private detective David Addison Jr. opposite Cybill Sheperd in the TV series Moonlighting (1985-1989). Do you know that before all these he was also a recording artist during the 1980s? Willis had a hit single – “Respect Yourself” – and his album The Return of Bruno, released on January 20, 1987, was a “moderate success.”
