Rian Johnson on Casting Bruce Willis for 'Looper'

Writer, director Rian Johnson shares how he was able to cast Bruce Willis to star opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt in his new time traveler movie. "Bruce Willis we have been watching for years and years and almost the same way you know what your grandmother looks and sounds like, you know what Bruce Willis looks and sounds like and I thought let's use that instead of fighting it and let's give that to Joe and let him use that to grab on to and let him use that as a set of shared references to build his character around" added Rian.
