Film Threat Calls Bruce One Of The Coldest People In Hollywood

Thanks to the anonymous tipster for this next story. Film Threat revealed their list for the 50 Coldest People In Hollywood, and ranked Bruce at 13. Here is what they had to say.

13. Bruce Campbell
Bruce Campbell, B-movie hero to millions, is now hawking Old Spice. Is this what everyone who watched Roger Staubach shill for Rolaids or Muhammad Ali pitch Roach Motels felt? That chill in the air has nothing to do with a horde of cameos, bit parts, and voice acting—that chill is Bruce Campbell, coasting on a frozen career.
Anti-Freeze: No cameos, no bit parts, no voice acting, no piss-poor "My Name is Bruce." No video games. No television. He needs to get his metal hand back on and do "Evil Dead 4" already.

That's so absurd -- Evil Dead 4 would be as pathetic as Indiana Jones 4 is gonna be. Bruce's TV shows and cameos in movies are part of life's little pleasures, like receiving oral sex first thing in the morning -- it'll put you in a good mood for the rest of the day.

Bastards. Those Old Spice commercials were absolute GOLD. Gold I tell you! Besides, they're clearly forgetting "Burn Notice" which, if I'm not mistaken, was fairly popular.

But he really does need to do "Evil Dead 4." Sorry Katie 80, but if Harrison Ford, Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone fans all got sequels this year, BC fans deserve one as well.

God! Please! No Evil Dead 4! What are they thinking? They should read the comics if they want more of that. It's nothing wrong doing small jobs. It's better than being an Hollywood asshole.

First I read a ridiculous take from Film Threat, and then I gotta come in here see that so-called Bruce Campbell fans would not want an ED 4.
Oh yeah, comics are better! Oh yeah, cameos and a rarely seen sidekick on a so-so TV show is better than an ED movie starring Bruce! Now THAT is pathetic.
I'm so mad, I need to get away from these people and go chop some wood with a chainsaw.

What - was this Film Threat's Top Coolest people in Hollywood that we'd like to trash list??

That was just weird, put the dude up near the top and then in their scribble about him, completely cut him down.

Now I was as disgusted as anyone that BC did an advert, until I saw them and thought - hell I don't care anymore, that's genius. No it didn't make me want to buy Old Spice but at least someone out there recognised that Bruce has fans enough to make him a viable option to sell a product.

I wish Raimi and Tapert realised that and stopped trying to find the next franchise to ruin or independant horror script to trash and put Brce at the lead of a new movie... if that HAS to be ED4 then so be it but I'd rather they do a whole new trilogy, something original, something more their age - with Bruce in the lead, Tapert producing and Raimi directing (completely unteathered - not pussy whipped like those Spiderman flicks)

As for Burn Notice - it was a so-so show, th other actors in it are awful and it's a substandard A Team rip off.

I Want Bruce leading up a few more movies - good ones - Bubba Hotep calibre - there was his chance to show everyone what he could do and he followed it up with two Sci-Fi TV duds!!! god it's frustrating....

anyway - I love Bruce despite all that - keep the faith brothers and sisters - remember it was over 10 years between Army of Darkness and Bubba Hotep - we may just have to be patient.

Christ, the guy's a fucking actor, not a god damn one hit wonder. Actors like to expand and play other roles, not do the same character for 30 years and then tour conventions for the rest of their lives. Just because Bruce doesn't want to drop everything to be in yet another movie that will become a college drinking game isn't a bad thing. Besides, ED4 would be great, but a guy's gotta make a living, and you don't make a living by starring in a genre flick every 10 years.

I actually agree with Film Threat... to an extent. I am a huge Bruce fan, and and I recently watched some of my old favorites... Windwarp, Waxwork 2... and Bruce just doesn't rock it like he did back then. He had so much passion and style. Not doing Bubba Nosferatu was a huge blow. I have little to no value for things like Man With The Screaming Brain and Burn Notice... The only thing that can save him now is "Vacation"... I have high hopes. Just my opinion, and I will always be a fan of Bruce's... everything's cyclical. He was the best part of Spider Man 3!

I actually really enjoyed Burn Notice. Casting, I think, was awesome in that series. And the show itself was just a lot of fun to watch. I have hopes for season 2. And normally I don't pay attention to silly actor endorsements for anything, but I have to admit, that commercial was brilliant. Old spice has always reminded me of rugged, handsome, and a bit unpolished. Who better? I can't imagine it came cheap, either.

As for ED4, please, spare us. I like the character, but I'd prefer to see something interesting come from it if they are going to do something. A sequel to Bubba Hotep would have been amazing, but apparently that died in committee. Which is a shame. I always make a point to see any movie with Bruce in it when I can and when My Name is Bruce comes to select theaters I'll find one in my home area of Seattle. Not film-mecha but they usually have limited run movies somewhere here.

I don't think Bruce should play Ash again unless it's like an "Evil Dead Beyond" situation where he's teaching someone else to be badass. What this ignorant writer doesn't seem to realize is that a man can' tplay the same role forever, especially the one of a college student up in the cabins. The man's getting older and more mature roles are his realm now.
I'm sure we'd all hate to see Sean Connery playing James Bond again, or Robert Redford as Paul Bratter. The man's career is up to him, and to pressure him into doing a role that's no longer his type, and that continually chases him around is like asking a monkey to dance.
Ever notice how he signs with "Don't call me Ash?"

I thought he said that he would like to do "Evil Dead 4," but Sam Raimi isn't interested.

Yeah. I think so.

Actually, I'll do my best to quote him. "Well, maybe when Sam Raimi is finished making boatloads of cash off Spiderman..."

I don't know why you'd want him not to make another one. It's not like they're going to fuck with the original films like they did with "Star Wars." Because for the record, I would be strongly against inserting any CGI Zombies into a classic film from the 1980's.

I'm willing to bet there were plenty of naysayers back in the early 90's who were dead set against adding a third installment to the series. If we'd listened to them we'd never have been fortunate enough to experience the glory that is "Army of Darkness."

I'm sure there were plenty of naysayers when they heard that Stallone was doing another "Rocky." And then again when they heard he was doing another "Rocky." And then again when they heard he was doing another "Rocky..."

Actually, after a weak start, Burn Notice has turned into a pretty good little show.

The Old Spice commercials are absolutely sublime. The marketing guys for that campaign nailed it when trying to capture the ethos of the mighty BC.

Alas, like many, the opting out of Bubba Nos is a big blow. Ho-Tep was a gem of a flick.

Somehow I think he'd laugh at this.

One of the reasons I've always admired Bruce is that he's managed to make a living doing what he loves in a way that suits him. Pandering to someone else's expectations of what an acting career should be is so not his style.

Yo, Deckle! The MNIB trailer is out! I think that deserves an update! PLEEZ!

What a bunch of crap. They've apperantily haven't studied up on him at all. They're just throwing random names out there to get attention. They got it.

Having read the Chin bio, my take on things is that Mr. Capbell is living his life and having a good time, and that's all I'd want after all the great entertainment he's given over the years. Whatver he wants to do, I'll seek it out, if it's ED4 or Screaming Brain 2, it's all good to me.
