Borgnine heaps praise on wonderful Willis

The 93-year-old actor has been a big fan of Willis’ work ever since the actor first hit the screen in TV comedy Moonlighting – and Borgnine relished the opportunity of telling the action man to his face.

He says, “Every once in a while Bruce would come over to me and give me a squeeze. A couple of times he did that I thought he wanted to go steady! What a heck of a nice guy.

“I predicted he was gonna become some big star the minute I saw him on Moonlighting. I said, ‘This boy is gonna go places,’ and sure enough he has and he deserves it because he’s a hard conscientious worker and a wonderful guy to boot. It’s a pleasure to know him.”
