Bruce Willis

Fast Food Nation

16 Nov, 2006

In this drama inspired by Eric Schlosser’s 2001 non-fiction book by the same name, Willis plays Harry Rydell, a meat supplier for fast food burger chains. Rydell appears in just one scene, during a meeting with Don Anderson, played by Greg Kinnear. Don is a marketing man for “Mickey’s” restaurant chain, who travels to Colorado to investigate rumors of meat contamination. Director Richard Linklater:

I just sent him the script. I just kinda needed somebody like Bruce Willis. I’ve had friends who had worked with him. I didn’t know him, but I had a hunch that he might dig that part. I was lucky. I guess he wasn’t doing anything else that moment—it was only for one day.
