"Well, they wanted to do Patriot Games, which had the villains as the Irish Republican Army. Both Alec [Baldwin] and I, as Irish-Americans, were a bit uncomfortable with that, since it's our heritage. They had another script (Clear and Present Danger) that both Alec and I wanted to do, and for various reasons we decided not to. With Die Hard, I guess I just found myself bumping heads with Joel Silver a lot."
