Bruce Willis is taking on the bad guys again in the upcoming action film, “A Good Day to Die Hard.” This time around, John McClane heads to Moscow, Russia to help his son Jack (Jai Courtney), a CIA operative, stop a nuclear weapons heist and battle deadly Russian criminals. If you’re a “Die Hard” fan, you may know a lot about these movies, but how much do you know about Bruce Willis? Check out these five little known facts about him.

Bruce Beat Out Several Other Big Names for the "Die Hard" Role— After seeing so many “Die Hard” films, it’s probably hard to imagine anybody other than Willis as the main character. However, when the original “Die Hard” was in production, stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Richard Gere, Burt Reynolds and Sylvester Stallone were all considered for the role. The actors might have done well as McClane, but Willis was the one that had the certain charisma the producers were looking for. The producers thought he added warmth and wit to the character.

He Wears Many Career Hats — It’s common movie knowledge that Willis is the star of the “Die Hard” franchise, including “A Good Day to Die Hard,” but did you know that Willis is also working behind the scenes as well? Willis is also the executive producer of “A Good Day to Die Hard.” As executive producer, he was able to make some big decisions about the film. Keep reading to find out more.

The Addition of McClane’s Son — You might think that adding McClane’s adult son to “A Good Day to Die Hard” was a studio decision. But, according to WorstPreviews, it was all Willis’ idea. The film’s director, John Moore, explained more about the storyline at the film’s London premiere. “This was a story that Bruce pitched to us,” Moore said. “He said, ‘I think in this ‘Die Hard’ it will be good to go find my son.'” The addition of McClane’s son is sure to add a new element to an already action-packed film.

He's Not a Fan of the Film’s Title — “A Good Day to Die Hard” has a certain nostalgia factor to it, which some fans may like, but Willis isn’t too fond of it. According to Digital Spy, Willis explained more about his feelings about the title during an interview on “The One Show.” “I don’t quite understand it. It’s a good day…to die hard?,” Willis said. “I’m still working on it.”

He's got a Shoulder Scar — The scar you can see on his right shoulder isn't special effect makeup; it's real. The scar came from a surgery he had when he was 17-years-old because of complications from a broken arm.

Watch Bruce Willis take out criminals and save the world in “A Good Day to Die Hard,” coming to theaters February 14.
