      The guy isn't an actor anymore, Noah land hasn't done a thing since then which I find is a shame. He could have gone back into it when he was in his twenties.

      Who were you thinking of?

      You might be right about that, I was just putting it out there to see if someone might respond to it.

        @instead8909 Are you sure the kid who was in the first one for a couple of seconds and didn't even have any lines (as far as I can remember) is even still an actor? Besides, even though he played that part when he was a kid, does not mean he would have been right for the part today or could have pulled it of convincingly. I doubt the audience is going to create a fuzz over that.

          Doesn't seem like that would be his son. Sorry.


          • instead8909 • 3 years ago

            Did you know the kid in the first Die Hard film hasn't acted. It's his own film, now he's old enough to come back but no they replace him with someone else.

            @jasonkat I haven't seen 16 blocks and I agree with your assessment of the character. I just don't see the reason in some of these so called writers, have of them are horrible.

            I would like to see Bruce, the way he was in Die Hard.

              That kinda chit, pisses me off too!

              Or the fact that John McClane "here" and from the last film, seems NOTHING like the john we saw in the first-3 film. While i think Bruce's character Jack Mosley from "16 blocks" Feels way more like john mcClane, because hes a warn out, washed up cop, who is tired of all the uglyness and corruption he has seen and had to deal with. Thats the kinda cop thy should have stayed with in these die hard films,

              Now it feels like a whole diff. character, or like, they wanna make him kick ass, like tom cruise or rambo, lol

              I think 'live free or die hard" was the worst film. 1 and 3 were way better. So lets hope this1 is alot better than die hard 4.

                @Dark-White-Knight Well his son did appear briefly in the first Die Hard film.


                • Dark-White-Knight • 3 years ago

                  It's weird that they didn't mention if he had a son on the last film, like John could of asked his daughter how her brother is doing, its just weird to me and bothers me at the same time, i hope they address their relationship

                    Crossover Film: Henry Jones Sr. and Henry "Indiana" Jones Jr. vs John and Jack McClane


                    • instead8909 • 3 years ago

                      Jack is another name of John.
