Bruce Willis is 'still Bruce' despite not being 'totally verbal,' 'Moonlighting' creator says

Bruce Willis, star of the 1980s show "Moonlighting," may not be able to communicate in the same way due to his progressive brain condition, but he is still himself, according to the show's creator, Glenn Gordon Caron. Caron revealed in an interview that he tries to see Willis once a month and knows that Willis is happy about "Moonlighting" finally being available for streaming on Hulu. Willis, who has been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia, was instrumental in getting the show back in front of people before his condition deteriorated. Part of the tragedy of Willis' diagnosis is that he was known for his zest for life, which has now diminished. Although he is no longer totally verbal and can no longer read, Caron emphasized that when you're with Willis, you still recognize him as Bruce and appreciate his presence. Despite his struggles, Willis remains himself at the core.
