In the mid-’90s, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore were a high-profile celebrity couple whose notoriety as individuals and as a couple increased exponentially after their marriage in 1987. They were also two of Hollywood’s most in-demand actors. Willis was well-established as the face of the Die Hard franchise, and Moore, already having a hot streak with her performances in Ghost, A Few Good Men and Indecent Proposal, could claim a stunning (for the at the time) $12.5 million salary for “Striptease” (per Entertainment Weekly).
In “Beavis and Butt-Head Do America,” Willis and Moore voice Muddy and Dallas, a former couple who are separately trying to hire the boys to “do” the other. Of course the exes mean “kill” when they say “do,” but dopey high schoolers Beavis and Butt-Head mean “sex,” which in turn gets them damn excited after Muddy presents them with $10,000+ in Lost-in- Translation statements. He mistakes the boys for hit men he waits for when they wander into his flea market motel just to watch some tube movie. It all starts with a stolen TV in their own home and ends with Dallas sending the boys to Washington DC with a biological weapon. That’s how things work in the world of Beavis and Butt-Head.
Before the 1996 animated film, Willis and Moore teamed up on 1991’s Mortal Thoughts. In 2003, they collaborated on Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, although Willis is uncredited there (per IMDb). But entering the world of Judge as a couple determined to kill and manipulate one another is definitely their most unique pairing.
