James Cole from 12 Monkeys

In 12 Monkeys, James Cole (played by Bruce Willis) is a prisoner who is offered parole if he can complete a dangerous mission that involves time travel.  James is sent back to 1996 from the year 2035 in order to try and stop a plague from plunging the world into chaos and wiping out millions of people.  During James’ first trip back in time, he is inadvertently sent to 1990, where he meets animal rights activist Jeffrey Goines.  James wears several outfits, depending on which timeline he is in, but one of his most recognizable includes an army green jacket and burgundy zip up sweatshirt.

John McClane

In Die Hard, John McClane (Bruce Willis) is an NYPD police officer attending a Christmas work party in an LA skyscraper when Hans Gruber take everyone hostage. He goes John Wayne, or Roy Rogers, on everyone’s ass, stealthily working his way through the building and systematically killing Gruber’s henchmen. Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker.

Joe from Looper

In Looper, young Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a time-traveling assassin paid to kill victims sent back in time by a crime syndicate. Things are going just peachy until they send back old Joe (Bruce Willis), his 30-year-older self.

David Dunn

In Unbreakable, David Dunn (Bruce Willis) is a security guard who realizes that he has super powers after he’s the only one to survive a train wreck. And like in most M. Night Shyamalan movies, his kryptonite is the most common of substances: water. His poncho reads “FSU” (for Franklin State University) in yellow letters on the front, and “Security” on the back.
