Bruce Willis: Paul McCartney would be perfect for RED 3
- Sunday, July 28, 2013

Bruce Willis wants Sir Paul McCartney to star in 'RED 3'. The 58-year-old actor plays retired CIA agent Frank Moses in the action comedy franchise alongside an all-star cast including Dame Helen Mirren and John Malkovich, and thinks the Beatles legend would be the perfect addition to the ageing cast in a potential third instalment. Quizzed about which action legend he would like to join the stellar ensemble, he joked to BANG Showbiz: ''Paul McCartney. What do you think? Or Keith Richards.''


The father-of-four seemed also seemed excited about the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's first child at the 'Red 2' premiere in London's Leicester square last night (22.07.13). Asked if his alter-ego Frank would be a monarchist, he replied: ''Yes. Cause he's a family man. He likes kids.''

Half of them know the words better than I do!"

 John Lennon Quote of the week
