Tonight, Friday, July 15, at 10:45pm, Bruce Willis hits ITV screens as the iconic Detective John McClane in Die Hard 2. But the same year that Die Hard 2 was released in cinemas, the incredible action hero passed on a role that would go on to define part of Swayze’s career.


Willis was given the script for the paranormal romance movie Ghost.

The film, of course, went on to star Swayze and Demi Moore in a stunning love story that earned a staggering $500 million at the box office.

Not only that, it was nominated for Best Picture, Best Original Score and Best Film Editing at the Oscars, before going on to win Best Supporting Actress and Best Original Screenplay.

When Willis received the script, however, he didn’t see the appeal.
