Cole Hauser Set for ‘A Good Day To Die Hard’ in Pivotal Villain Role

The bulk of chatter about the next Die Hard movie, amusingly titled A Good Day To Die Hard, has centered on finding an appropriate actor to play John McClane, Jr., leaving little room for fans of motherfuckers and/or yippee-ki-yays to wonder who the hell the McClane boys would actually be going up against. Turns out, in between taking quotes about potential Avengers sequels out of context and slapping EXCLUSIVE! stamps on everything, Deadline Sheboygan has actually turned up real news. The outlet reports that Cole Hauser will play a villain named Collins in the film, described as a “pivotal supporting role.” Beyond that, we don’t much about Hauser’s role, but hey, the guy definitely looks like he can put a hurt on someone (really, he did play the bad guy in 2 Fast 2 Furious).

Bruce Willis will return for the fifth installment of the series, with Jai Courtney set to play his son. This Hard outing is being directed by John Moore and is currently shooting in Russia. A Good Day To Die Hard will open on February 14, 2013.
