Bruce Willis returned to Studio 8H this weekend to host Saturday Night Live for the first time since 1989. "If you had told me back then there were going to be six Die Hards, I would have said, 'That seems a little too many,'" he quipped during his opening monologue. (Later, cast member Bobby Moynihan joked that he and Willis previously worked together in Look Who's Talking, when he played the baby.)
So, how did Willis do as host? Check out some of the best sketches below.
The Die Hard franchise refuses to die.
A Good Day to Die Hard, the fifth installment in the Bruce Willis series, grossed an estimated...
Die Hard made $137 million at the worldwide box office, turned Bruce Willis a bona fide movie star and earned legions of adoring fans. But you won't catch The Office's Ellie Kemper screaming "Yippee-ki-yay!" anytime soon.
"I saw the clips and I saw enough," she tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "I could say for The Sound of Music and A League of Their Own — like, 'How have you not seen those movies?!' But I don't feel that connection to Die Hard. No offense to Bruce Willis."
That won't stop Kemper's Office alter-ego from at least trying to get into the 1988 action classic on the NBC comedy's Christmas episode (Thursday at 9/8c). "Pete learns that Erin hasn't seen Die Hard and this is one of his favorite movies," she says. "Pete can recite all the lines. When we were on set, all the guys knew...

Community's brand of ambitious, off-the-wall comedy has put the members of Greendale's study group in a fierce paintball competition and sent them to simulated space. But it was Season 1's Halloween episode that first showed the cast what the show was capable of doing.

So, if you have a dad like mine, this weekend is a cause for alarm. Im a little too old to be giving him a can of cashews again, he has every book on the Civil War known to man, and Ive probably stolen every tool hes been given over the last 10 years. See? The man is impossible to buy for!To take a little pressure off myself (and hopefully inspire some of you equally desperate ACOIFs...Adult Children of Impossible Fathers), I offer a cheat sheet of DVD sets perfect for every daddy-o

Per the Hollywood Reporter, Deadwood's Timothy Olyphant has been tapped to play Bruce Willis' nemesis in Live Free or Die Hard. Also new to the cast is Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Final Destination 3) as McClane's daughter.... Kelly Preston and Michelle "the next Scarlett Johansson?" Trachtenberg are a single mom and her eldest daughter in The Possibility of Fireflies, an adaptation of director Dominique Paul's novel.... Per Variety, the Jim Henson Co. has enlisted Ahmet Zappa to pen a big-screen outing for the '80s kids' show Fraggle Rock.
Now that the relationship between Paramount and Tom Cruise has soured, might the Mission: Impossible franchise be turned over to another of Hollywood's biggest stars? A rep for Brad Pitt tells the New York Daily News that rumblings of the fair-haired hunk heading up the next Mission are "totally made up".... Justin Long and Maggie Q are joining Bruce Willis in Live Free or Die Hard, playing a sidekick for McClane and a world-class hacker, respectively.... Charlize Theron and Tommy Lee Jones are in talks to play a police detective and a father searching for his supposedly AWOL (but perhaps murdered) Iraq War-vet son in Crash director Paul Haggis' next project.
OK, I know it's Dana Delany, but I think that given her obsessive collecting of files and other tin-foil-hat doings, we're not dealing with the compassionate Colleen McMurphy here. But before I'm proved right (with the hostage taking) and wrong (about the conspiracy-nut angle — she was actually correct about Adama having a Cylon onboard), we get to see poor Billy proposing to Dee, only to have his heart ripped out. It obviously tears her up inside, though, since she immediately dolls up and tells Apollo all about it over a romantic dinner on Cloud Nine.
Then everything goes Die Hard, with Delany's bitter widow, Sesha
