Let’s Take A Moment To Appreciate The Greatness Of Bruce Campbell

I was reading about the upcoming remake of THE EVIL DEAD that Sam Raimi is directing and Bruce Campbell is co-producing and I got a little wistful. I understand that Hollywood is all about recycling ideas and it was only a matter of time before they got around to doing THE EVIL DEAD.

Bruce Campbell

Only a big ol’ pimp like Bruce Campbell could get away with wearing that white blazer/pink shirt combo.

On the plus side at least this new version is going to be in the hands of the two men who made the original series so much fun. Plus they have cast the wonderful Jane Levy (from the equally wonderful TV series SUBURGATORY) in the gender switched lead role which is another check in the plus column. But I am still wistful just because I cannot imagine anyone replacing Campbell in the role of Ash (even if the role is now a woman named Mia); hell I can’t imagine anyone replacing Campbell in any of his roles. I mean he’s Bruce Campbell! Who doesn’t like Bruce Campbell? He is one of the most likable famous people on the planet. So if your feeling froggy, click on through to the other side and check out the list of my Top 5 Favorite Bruce Campbell Roles!
