You could chisel the head off and use a Broken Screw or Bolt Extractor to remove the rest of the bolt. I don't know why GM continues to use Torx Head Bolts on those type of applications, the bolt heads always get stripped out.

For a simple answer yes, it will work BUT before you do.
Take a hand help propane torch and heat up the area (very close) to the bleeder first this will expand the the area around the bleeder thus making it easier to loosen. This may have to be done several times. The reason i say this, is you may have to loosen and tighten the bleeder several times( so you dont break the bleeder off) to get it to loosen all the way to be able to turn it out. MAKE sure to replace the bleeder after you have used a vise-grips on it.
