Shocking news, I know. Bruce Campbell has signed to play a supporting character in the new TV show called Burn Notice for the USA Network. Bruce will not be playing the male lead in the show but will be playing his friend. Here is a description of the show and Bruce's role from the Hollywood Reporter:

Emmy winner Sharon Gless and Bruce Campbell also have joined the Fox TV Studios project, to be directed by Jace Alexander. Set in Miami, 'Burn' centers on Michael Weston (Donovan), a blacklisted Special Ops agent who uses his elite training to find the reason for the "burn notice" that ended his spy career as well as to help those who can't go to the police.Anwar will play Weston's ex, a former IRA terrorist and expert at survival tactics who has a love-hate relationship with him. Gless will play Weston's mother, a lonely, an aging chain smoker who has issues with her son. Campbell will play a former Navy SEAL who is an old friend of Weston's."

I know everyone is going to be up in arms about Bruce not starring in this show but Bruce picked this show for a reason and not because of the paycheck. I know all the Bruce fans want a campy show starring there hero but it will be nice to see Bruce on television every week. No mention of when the show air, probably mid-season.
