TG chats to Bruce Willis*

Larry Rippenkroeger isn't Bruce Willis. He is, however, a very nice man with a smashing name and a penchant for the dangerous. The kind of dangerous that might persuade the ‘reasonable man' to curl up into fits of trembling fear, and the kind of dangerous that puts you in hospital for a month needing several surgeries.

Larry Rippenkroeger is a stunt man; more specifically, Bruce Willis' stunt double, and sitting on the balcony overlooking the Mercedes-Benz World in Surrey, he recalls one terrible night in Los Angeles many years ago on the set of Die Hard 4.0, where he experienced what life in the dangerous lane tasted like. It tasted like pavement.
