'Die Hard' director isn't saying 'Yippee-ki-yay' as he heads to prison1/16/2013
John McTiernan had hoped to avoid serving time in the clink, but that dream just died quicker than Bruce Willis can blow up a building. The director of "Die Hard" and "The Hunt for Red October" will soon begin serving a one-year federal prison sentence — and be on the hook for a $100,000 fine — for lying to the FBI during its investigation of Hollywood private detective Anthony Pellicano for illegal wiretapping. McTiernan had hired Pellicano to investigate producer Chuck Roven while the two were working on 2002's "Rollerball" remake. On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected McTiernan's request for a reversal in his guilty plea, which means he'll soon trade his director's chair for, um, whatever you sit on in prison. [Source]
