Glenn Gordon Cullen said that while his friend Bruce Willis can no longer communicate in the same way, he knows Willis is happy that his show Moonlighting is finally online.

Cuarón, the creator of the TV series that Willis starred in in the 1980s, told the New York Post about his friend, saying he would try to see him once or once a month or so.

“I know he’s really excited to have the show open to people,” Cullen said.

Moonlighting, the beloved romantic comedy starring Willis and Sybil Shepard as private investigators, is now streaming on Hulu.

“This process (“part-time job” on Hulu) took quite a while, and Bruce’s disease is a progressive disease, so I was able to communicate with him and hopefully get some help before the disease left him unable to communicate like he is now. The show is back in front of people,” Cullen said. “I know it means a lot to him.”

Last year, Willis announced he was retiring from his career due to cognitive issues. He has since been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia (FTD), a progressive brain disease.

Part of the tragedy of Willis’s diagnosis, his friends say, is that “no one had more joy in life” than Willis.

“He’s not exactly verbal; he used to be a voracious reader – he didn’t want anyone to know that – and he doesn’t read now. All those language skills are no longer available to him,” Cuarón said. , but he’s still Bruce.” “When you were with him, you knew he was Bruce and you were grateful he was there, but the joy of life was gone.”
