The Hollywood A-Listers You Forgot Starred in Beavis and Butt-Head Do America
By the mid-1990s, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore were a top celebrity couple, their notoriety rising exponentially as individuals and as a couple following their 1987 nuptials. They were also two of the most in-demand actors in ‘Hollywood. Willis was well established as the face of the “Die Hard” franchise, and Moore, already on a hot streak with performances in “Ghost,” “A Few Good Men” and “Indecent Proposal,” was able to demand a jaw-dropping ( for the time) $12.5 million salary for “Striptease” (per Weekly entertainment).
In “Beavis and Butt-Head Do America”, Willis and Moore voice Muddy and Dallas, a former couple who separately try to hire the boys to “do” each other. Sure, the exes mean “kill” when they say “do,” but dumb high schoolers Beavis and Butt-Head think it means “sex,” which gets them pretty damn horny after Muddy hands them $10,000 and some instructions lost in translation. He mistakes the boys for the hit men he expects when they wander into his flea motel just to watch a hit. It all starts with a television stolen from their home and ends with Dallas sending the boys to Washington DC with a bio-weapon. That’s how things work in the world of Beavis and Butt-Head.
Prior to the 1996 animated film, Willis and Moore teamed up for “Deadly Thoughts” in 1991. In 2003, they worked together on “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle”, although Willis is uncredited in it (per IMDb). But entering Judge’s world as a couple bent on killing and manipulating each other is certainly their most unique pairing.
