Bruce Willis has made several cameos in cult series. In particular one, astonishing, in Misfire, the 182nd episode of That ’70s Show. The American actor embodies the sordid character of Vic, responsible for security in a naughty club in Chicago. Wearing a ridiculous wig, he asks Kelso (Ashton Kutcher) to join his company. The on-screen relationship between Willis and Kutcher inevitably resonates in a funny way when we know that the second, a few months before the broadcast of the episode, married Demi Moore, Willis’ ex-wife. .
Besides this funny cameo in That ’70s Show, Bruce Willis appeared at the very beginning of his career in Two cops in Miami, then in Ally McBeal.
