VIDEO: MISERY's Bruce Willis on Working with Laurie Metcalf: 'I Have to Find Ways to Not Start Cracking Up'
Bruce Willis stopped by today's LIVE to talk about making his Broadway debut in MISERY. The actor revealed it's difficult for him to keep a straight face on stage opposite his hilarious co-star Laurie Metcalf. "It's really hard," he shared. "I have to find different ways to not start cracking up." Watch the appearance below!
Broadway's new suspense thriller Misery, starring two-time Emmy Award winner and Golden Globe Award winner Bruce Willis and three-time Emmy Award winner Laurie Metcalf, is currently in previews at Broadway's Broadhurst Theatre (235 W 44th Street), and officially opens on Sunday, November 15, 2015, in a strictly limited 16-week engagement.
Written by two-time Academy Award winner William Goldman and directed by Will Frears, Misery follows successful romance novelist Paul Sheldon (Bruce Willis), who is rescued from a car crash by his "Number One Fan," Annie Wilkes (Laurie Metcalf), and wakes up captive in her secluded home. While Paul is convalescing, Annie reads the manuscript to his newest novel and becomes enraged when she discovers the author has killed off her favorite character, Misery Chastain. Annie forces Paul to write a new "Misery" novel, and he quickly realizes Annie has no intention of letting him go anywhere. The irate Annie has Paul writing as if his life depends on it, and if he does not make her deadline, it will.
