Bruce Willis grew up in New Jersey. He attended Montclair State College and joined its theatre department. He did many auditions and finally landed a role in the play Heaven and Earth in 1977.

Up next for Willis was being cast in off-Broadway plays and also getting roles in television commercials. The first breakthrough in Willis' career would come in 1984, when he replaced the lead in Fool for Love. His and the play's run lasted for 100 performances off-Broadway.
Later in 1984, Willis took a trip to Los Angeles. He auditioned for the role of David Addison on a show called Moonlighting. Willis was selected from 3,000 contenders and won the role. He starred opposite Cybil Sheppard. Moonlighting became a huge success. Bruce won an Emmy and a Golden Globe Award for his phenomenal work on the show.
