If Bruce Willis is to be believed, a sixth installment of “Die Hard” is already in development. And really, in this case, who other than Willis should you believe?
Bleeding Cool reports that Willis told BBC’s “One Show” “yes” when asked if “Die Hard 6” was on the way. No confirmation beyond the fact it was being developed, but considering the fact “A Good Day to Die Hard” hasn’t even hit theaters yet, that’s about as much as we can expect.
20th Century Fox has been making a good show of its support of the “Die Hard” franchise during the series’ 25th anniversary. The studio recently unveiled a massive John McClane mural on its Los Angeles lot, and is holding a marathon of the first four films in anticipation of “A Good Day to Die Hard’s” release date. It seems unlikely that this new movie will be a flop, so it’s a safe bet to have a sixth movie lined up already. But where will McClane go next!
“A Good Day to Die Hard” takes Bruce Willis’ McClane from Jersey to Russia, where he teams up with his son Jack, played by Jai Courtney. Also appearing in this movie are Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Cole Hauser and Sebastian Koch. The film is due out on February 14.

Wednesdays are tough. You’re halfway through the week, but there’s still half of the week left. Luckily Wednesdays mean brand new Maron, with yet another chance to gain some much needed wisdom from Marc Maron. This week Marc continues to dig himself out of his own personal hell, making us all wiser in the process. Before you catch tonight’s Maron, check out some Marc quotes to get you over “Hump Day.”
1. Set realistic diet goals.
Instead of looking up how many calories you have left for today’s nutritional intake, admit that you just want something of the whipped and creamy variety.
2. Assert yourself into the conversation.
Instead of letting people walk all over you, be like Marc and demand to be heard…even if it’s just to tell someone to shut up.
3. Trust no one. Except Marc.
Instead of trying to figure out which friend could keep a secret, admit that you yourself couldn’t keep a secret to save your life.
4. Minimize your shortcomings.
Instead of blaming the world for your failures, admit when it’s your own damned fault…to a point.
5. Celebrate accomplishments. Even minor ones.
Instead of wishing for greater success, take pride in the ways that you have excelled without judgment.
6. Remember that every day is filled with potential.
Just make sure you have enough coffee.
7. Demand proof from others.
Instead of potentially being in someone’s shadow, throw doubt on anything they haven’t properly documented.
8. Take a moment to reflect.
There’s a first time for everything.
9. Be honest about where you’re at right now.
Instead of avoiding embarrassment, embrace it.
10. And finally, remember the important things in life.
Instead of bemoaning the inadequacies of your relationships, perhaps due in part to items 1 through 9, just focus on the physical.
It ain’t no stage persona: Marc Maron is an anxious, angry, complicated fellow. In a recent interview with Terry Gross on Fresh Air, the Maron star described how he’s beset by constant anxiety, self-hatred, and general unease, which he considers his “uncomfortable” comfort zone. “Being sort of anxious and uncomfortable has really been my home base, innately,” he said. “And I don’t know how to change that, and that’s really the challenge for me now.”
A former addict himself, Marc also discussed the difficulty of portraying his TV character’s drug relapse, downfall, and rehabilitation — a fear he’s glad “happened in fiction and not in real life.”

“Weird Al” has had one of the most unique careers in entertainment history. Sure, he made his name with parody songs, but he’s long since transcended simply poking fun at pop, becoming an American comedy staple in the process. With his new gig behind the keyboard on IFC’s Comedy Bang! Bang!, we thought we’d take a look back at just a few of his classic pop culture cameos, in which he showed he was more than just the man with the accordion and rhyming dictionary.
10. The Goldbergs
“Weird Al” came full circle with this recent cameo on this ’80s-set sitcom, once again donning the frizzy hair, mustache and Hawaiian shirt to return to his glorious retro roots.
Galavant, the historical musical comedy series, was recently canceled by ABC, but not before we got to see Al as a doo-wop crooning monk who’d taken a “vow of singing.”
8. Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp
With Wet Hot American Summer making a triumphant return last summer, we all should have known they would work in a bit in which “Weird Al” played a summer camp hypnotist who turned into assassin Jon Hamm.
7. Batman: The Brave and the Bold
“Weird Al” creates music for all ages, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that he occasionally pops up on Saturday Morning cartoons, like this turn on Batman: The Brave and the Bold, in which he got to battle the Joker and the Penguin alongside Batman, Robin and Scooby-Doo.
6. Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!
Al has popped up on Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim’s bizarre ode to anti-comedy series a few times, but this wedding fever dream, straight out of the mind of a serial killer, really sort of sums it all up, whatever “all” is.
5. 30 Rock
Al is a man of many talents, but at the end of the day, he knows how to rip out a parody song with some bite. Here he puts his gifts to good use, writing lyrics to the 30 Rock theme song, and highlighting their lack of ratings in the process.
4. Halloween II
“Weird Al” shows up in just about the last place you would expect here, in Rob Zombie’s hard R horror remake. Playing a guest on what looks like an early version of Talking Dead, Al does some typical talk show shtick alongside Michael Meyers’ ethically compromised doctor, Samuel Loomis.
3. Transformers: Animated
Al has quite a history with the Transformers. His song “Dare to be Stupid” was used in 1986’s The Transformers: The Movie, and he also popped up as Wreck-Gar, a simple-minded robot brought to life by the All Spark, on Transformers: Animated.
2. The Naked Gun
Al’s stardom was ascendant in 1988, if this classic gag from Naked Gun was any indication. (He also did the theme song for the 1996 Leslie Nielsen comedy Spy Hard.)
1. Amazing Stories, “Miss Stardust”
Al’s first TV cameo might just be his, ahem, weirdest. As an alien affectionately known as “Cabbage Man,” “Weird Al” made quite the impression without even needing his trusty accordion.
