Following in the footsteps of fellow senior action stars Arnold Schwarzenegger ("The Last Stand") and Sylvester Stallone ("Bullet to the Head"), Bruce Willis is back with a new shoot-'em-up of his own, reprising his role as the wisecracking New York City cop John McClane in "A Good Day to Die Hard. " The film finds McClane traveling to Moscow and teaming up with his son (played by Jai Courtney) to thwart a terrorist plot. Many movie critics, however, feel it wasn't worth bringing McClane out of retirement.

Tuning into "L.A. Law" each week, I am always excited to see the chemistry between Jill Eikenberry (Ann Kelsey) and Michael Tucker (Stuart Markowitz).

Barbra Streisand and Bruce Willis both have specials coming up on Home Box Office. On Dec. 27, Streisand will appear in a 70-minute concert titled "Barbra Streisand: One Voice."
