Cole Hauser Lands Other Villainous Role in 'A Good Day to Die Hard'

Cole Hauser

Last month, a couple of international actors joined the cast of the currently filming sequel A Good Day to Die Hard with Bruce Willis reprising his role as John McClane for a fifth time. This time the action goes overseas with McClane trying to save his son (played by Jai Courtney), who is every bit as hardcore as his father somewhere in Russia where "nothing is what it seems." The Lives of Others star Sebastian Koch and up and coming Russian actress Yulia Snigir already have a couple of villain roles, but now Deadline reports Cole Hauser has been lined up as another pivotal bad guy named Collins. But that's really all we know.

Hauser is definitely an underrated character actor with roles in films like School Ties and Good Will Hunting, not to mention two films with Bruce Willis under his belt: Hart's War and Tears of the Sun. It'll be interesting to see him in this villainous capacity, and hopefully he gets some decent screentime with him, something that was lacking between McClane and the villain played by Timothy Olyphant in Live Free or Die Hard, who just wasn't all that threatening despite a valiant effort by the "Justified" star. Once again, we're hoping director John Moore (Max Payne) puts the pedal to the metal for a solid R-rated sequel.

    Good news! But saving his son? Didn't he save his daughter in the last one? How lame. Get him back in a building!

    Dig Cole Hauser. I really hope they don't eff this up like the last one.
    Hauser is a badass. That pic is from 2 FAST 2 FURIOUS, right?  Cool.

      i think that pic is from Paparazzi. he doesn't look, what was he in that movie? half-South American or something? he doesn't look like that in this pic. lol
  •  I just hope they don't make McCLain  a superhero again. The stunts they had him doin in Live Free were WAY too over the top, I mean the Harrier scene, come on. Die hard a lil glass has him gimping around 20 years later a a 2 story fall while sliding down a crashed bridge has him uninjured. PLEASE bring back the mortal McClain.

    It's going to be PG-13. It has to be, right?

    Hauser? IN.

    They should definitely find another building for the next Die Hard; there's still material to mine in that scenario. It doesn't work for me having McClane running around a city. At least Die Harder contained the story to an airport.

    I agree.....Make this one Rated-R!!
