He is the Ubiquitous. He is the Unknown. He is, as one observer put it, "the holograph; the metaphor." He is Bruce Willis, and if he doesn't think of himself as a holograph or metaphor, well, that would be weird, since he was the observer who said that of himself (in a recent Vanity Fair article).   BRUCE ALMIGHTY - Bruce Willis returns to his signature role as tough cop John McClane in 'Live Free or ...
