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