Episode 12: Die Hard 2

Who doesn’t love the Bruce Willis Christmas classic Die Hard? Nobody! But we couldn’t quite get there so this episode we discuss the other Bruce Willis Christmas classic – Die Hard 2! We arrived at this film by leaping with Step Brothers cinematographer Oliver Wood.

Season 1, Episode 12

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Cinematographer: Oliver Wood

From: Step Brothers

Chosen by:
Crew (Scott)
Film (Mike)

With cinematographer Oliver Wood chosen as this episodes leaper, we could have gone to one of many action blockbuster films as he was known for working on a lot of these (as well as big comedy films). In the end Mike chose Die Hard 2, the second best Die Hard film set at Christmas time.

Where are we leaping to?

Actor: Reginald VelJohnson

To: Ghostbusters

Chosen by:
Actor (Glenn)
Film (Scott)

Knowing Scott’s love of Die Hard, Glenn chose actor Reginald VelJohnson who plays LAPD Sergeant Al Powell in Die Hard and Die Hard 2, but Scott took us in a different direction, to a film early in VelJohnson’s career where he is onscreen for a good few seconds playing a corrections officer in Ghostbusters
