House Of Tudor

Bruce Campbell's role as co- producer and star of the cult classic Evil Dead makes him a living legend. While he could've just lived on his laurels, Campbell is a "working" actor, a blue-collar thespian who doesn't turn down jobs…

Chin Up

By his own definition, Bruce Campbell is a "midgrade, kind of hammy actor"--a B-movie star, in other words, a man whose career unfolds, like a Swedish porn loop, on Cinemax in the wee small hours of the morning. When I…
