Too Old for Action?

Posted on: September 27, 2009

101828_behind-the-scenes-bruce-willis-surrogatesOn the weekend, I went to the Movies with my friends and we saw “Surrogates”. It was ok… “Surrogates” star Bruce Willis does not appear to be laying off the action roles. While on one level we completely respect that, on another we just can’t help but think he should be leaving the butt-kicking to the younger guys. Aside from the occasional low-energy part in such films as Barry Levinson’s “What Just Happened,” Bruce is still keeping things amped up in movies like 2007’s “Live Free or Die Hard” and the upcoming “Red.” How does the 54-year-old actor pull off these high-octane performances? Maybe he’s using a surrogate. Willis’ new film brings to mind a whole bunch of aging stars who we think are simply too old for action.
