Bruce Willis, who popped into "Friends" solely as a favor to his "The Whole Nine Yards" movie costar Matthew Perry, copped an Emmy over the weekend for his guest appearance on the NBC sitcom. (He played the disapproving father of a young woman who was dating David Schwimmer's Ross.) The win, which took place at Saturday's small-scale Emmy ceremonies for special and technical awards -- the primetime Emmys will be broadcast live on Sept. 10 -- marked Willis's second trophy from the TV Academy. Long before he became a potent box office name, he won the 1987 lead actor in a drama series Emmy for his ABC series, "Moonlighting."
