'Lay the Favorite': Bruce Willis sings
In Stephen Frears’ new film premiering at Sundance, Lay the Favorite, Bruce Willis plays a savvy gambler who recruits a beautiful stripper (The Town‘s Rebecca Hall) to help him in his operation. In this exclusive clip, the couple cruises into Vegas with the top down, singing “The Air That I Breathe” by The Hollies. For all you Return of Bruno fanatics who’ve been waiting patiently for Willis to sing again, you’re welcome. For others with ears, well, I’m sorry. Watch below.
Sundance vet Frears (The Grifters) reunites with his High Fidelity screenwriter D.V. DeVincentis for this dramedy about a girl who finds herself in over her head, co-starring Catherine Zeta Jones (as Willis’ wife), Joshua Jackson, Vince Vaughn, Laura Prepon, and Corbin Bernsen. The film premieres Jan. 21 in Park City, Utah at the Sundance Film Festival.
