What an absolute fucking legend

Don't make me use my stuff on ya baby!

What do I know I got a growth on my pecker!

Man. Myth. Legend. Chin.

Ash vs Evil Dead is honestly one of my favorite shows playing right now. Give it a watch if you love some good campy fun and horror.

It's the best late revival in the spirit of the original of any franchise in my opinion. They didn't miss a beat, and still managed to improve on it in many ways. Don't know any other franchise that has done that as successfully. Would love a final movie to cap it all off

I preferred Evil Dead 2 to Army of Darkness. S01E01 feels like Evil Dead 2 whereas the rest of season 1 feels like Army of Darkness. Not quite what I was hoping for but still great.

Didn't Sam Raimi direct the first episode? It definitely felt like classic evil dead camera angles and all

He did, it was very noticeable and I loved it

No, it's the Citizen Kane of late revivals!

Started it last night. I'm two episodes in and love it. It is exactly what I want in an Evil Dead show.

And the very first episodes are arguably the weakest...it gets better. Really fun show.

Where can I watch this? I Live in the UK and it doesn't seem to be available to stream. :(

I watched the first three episodes and just can’t watch anymore. The two sidekicks are so bad.

Finished season two last night. The sidekicks get a lot better

They get better.

There's a bunch of these, Bruce is like a comic-con professional.

Bruce is one of the two actors that I would totally geek out over. Love that guy.

Whos the second?

Gotta be Lucy Lawless.

An integral voice/character of the Spider-Man video game

Probably my favorite celebrity video game voiceover.

If he doesn't at least have a cameo in the new Spider-Man game I will riot

(and by riot I mean be real sad for 10 minutes and then move on)

Best tutorial voice ever.

Legend IMO. Bruce has been one of my favorite actors since I was a kid. I used to get up at 6:00am on Saturday mornings to watch Brisco County Jr on TNT.

Absolute legend. I used to hang around a book store in Detroit where the owner used to hang around with Campbell in his early days. The guy used to tell me loads of Campbell stories. Swell guy.

I recommend listening to his somewhat recent appearance in The Nerdist Podcast. Got a few good belly laughs out of it.

I'll never forget his usher in Spider-Man 2.

Isn't he the cage fight announcer in the first one?

He narrated the tutorials in the games as well!

Helps maintain the illusion.

Bruce Campbell is the finest man to grace a silver screen

All the other actors just degrade his noble scenes

The Oscars should award him for his wondrous career

Hold a town parade for him with each movie premier

Psychostick made a song called Bruce Campbell. Even better, he tweeted about it! Also, give psychostick a listen.

Read in James Lipton's voice, with the Inside the Actors Studio music playing in my head.

Bruce Campbell! Bruce ^^Campbell!

We're gonna be best friends!

Gonna come to your house and watch Hercules

From season one till the end

I'll hand you everything I own

And you'll sign it all for me!

Then we'll start rehearsing for Cave Alien 3

God I love this song 😂

Such an amazing song indeed.

we have a great grind band here in LA called bruceXcampbell that kicks ass

I love Bruce but he needs to act more, he's such a great actor but he's barely in movies. He could have a late career comeback working with great young directors. Kinda like Don Johnson has done, doing movies with Jim Mickle and Craig Zahler.

Being in a TV show for almost 10 years I'm sure slowed his movie acting.

I used to go to a lot of conventions back in the day. I think like 1993 or so I went to a con in South Carolina and Bruce Campbell was one of the guests.

Too many of the stars on the con circuit just put in their time to sell their merch or autographs but aren't really in it for much more than that. I've done security at a couple and some guests just want to be left alone unless they're getting paid.

But he was such a nice guy to everyone, and actually went to several of the room parties, had drinks with people and was really friendly and didn't act like he was too good for us. Since then I've gone out of my way to watch anything he's in.

Edit:

Worst: David Prowse, (Faux Darth Vader). He expected to be treated like royalty, and even me as a 17 year old at the time knew better than to cater to his insane wishes. F that guy, he can choke on his light-saber.

Best: (Besides Bruce!) Tied between Lou Ferrigno who sat with us for lunch at DragonCon and didn't act like anyone special and was interested in us, and Gunner Hanson (Texas Chansaw Massacre) - he remembered who I was after seeing him on multiple cons and remembered my name and acted like I was a real person and not some crazy fan.

Mediocre: James Doohan. I was assigned to escort him for 8 hours at a con. He was extremely fubar the whole time. I was slightly upset about it, but even though he was drunk he was really nice to me, just wanted me to keep him away from everyone else, so was one of those people who wanted to stay away from the people who loved him, so that kind of sucked.

I'm old now and not been to a con in a long time, so certainly all of them could have changed since then.

He made Burn Notice so fucking funny.

That was just pillow talk babe.

All I can think of when I see him is burn notice. I used to love that show when I was younger

He looks like nothing like Joseph Biden, but, dammit, if there's a man to play The Onion's Diamond Joe Biden, it's Campbell.

Bruce Campbell is a national treasure.

He is so dam great, doesn’t matter if he is on the big screen or the little screen, he is a dam legend.

Quick somebody get this man a mojito.

Love this guy
