Ash Will Be Evident In 'My Name Is Bruce'

Writer of the upcoming Bruce Campbell movie My Name Is Bruce, Mark Verheiden, did a interview with Comic Book Resources over the weekend and give us an update on the film. Verhedien said that the rural town-folk in the movie will recognize Bruce as playing "Ash" from the Evil Dead movies and not a fictional character from a made up "B" movie. Here is an excerpt of Verheiden's response to the last project he finished:

"It's called 'My Name is Bruce', starring Bruce Campbell. It's a screwy comedy starring and directed by Bruce. He plays a stuck-up, forgotten B-horror movie actor who gets kidnapped and brought out to this small town of idiots who think he is the embodiment of "Ash" from the "Evil Dead" movies. They want him to kill a very real monster, and he thinks it's all an elaborate birthday gift arranged by his sleazy agent. It was produced by Dark Horse Indie, their lower-budget film division. We shot it in August and it should be coming out later this year."

So Verheiden shuts down the rumors once again that My Name Is Bruce will be coming out in February. Looks like we have to wait a little bit longer for the film. Verheiden also goes onto talk about the Evil Dead comic that he is working on and his work on Battlestar Galactica. You can read the full article here.

Rob Tapert To Produce New TV Show Without Sam Raimi

Rob Tapert is slated to be producing a new scripted television show called Graphic City Limits for the Oxygen Network. Known for its strong female centered television, the Oxygen Network is also home to syndicated reruns of Xena: Warrior Princess. Here is an excerpt from Media Week:

"Oxygen’s development slate for 2008 and beyond features four scripted series, including Angry Little Girls, an animated half-hour strip produced by Jennifer Love Hewitt, and the hour drama Graphic City Limits, from Xena: Warrior Princess producer Rob Tapert."

We can assume that this show will be female centered but the genre is still skeptical. It seems kind of odd that Tapert is not partnering up with Sam Raimi on this one. This project only adds to the piles and piles of movies and other TV shows that Rob Tapert has lined up. Bruce will probably pop up in this show if it gets picked up. You can read the full press release here.

Sam Raimi Telling Sony He Is Thinking Of Doing 'The Hobbit'

A while ago, it was reported that Sam Raimi was contacted by New Line to make the prequel to The Lord of the Rings. Titled The Hobbit, the story tells of the adventures of Bilbo Baggins and his quest with Gandalf. Now rumors are turning into facts and it is being reported that Sam is actually talking about doing The Hobbit movies. Here is an excerpt from an article in the LA Times:

"In a move that would have ramifications for several major multi-nationals, and millions of fans, 'Spider-Man' maestro Sam Raimi has been telling associates, as well as his corporate masters at Sony, that he is thinking of directing 'The Hobbit,' the prequel to J.R.R. Tolkien's masterwork, "The Lord of the Rings." At least two top-level insiders – who declined to be named -- have heard the words out of the director's mouth.... A call to Raimi's office was directed to his agent, Richard Lovett, at CAA. The agency did not comment."

The article also goes onto mention that Sony plans to cap the Spider-Man franchise at six films. If Sam does take on The Hobbit, we won't be seeing him and Bruce hook up for Evil Dead IV any time soon, but we will probably see Bruce in The Hobbit. You can read the full article here.

Note: One more story for today. I've been pretty inconsistent for the last few days.

'My Name Is Bruce' Goes Front Page On IMDB

My Name Is Bruce is listed on the front page of IMDB as of today. If you look on the left hand side, you can see that My Name Is Bruce is listed under the "Coming Soon" section. IMDB has My Name Is Bruce slated to come out in February but My Name Is Bruce writer, Mark Verheiden, said a few weeks ago that a February release date was unlikely. So we will just have to wait and see how things play out. You can view the front page of IMDB here.

'Jack of all Trades' Back Up On You Tube, Old Spice Critique

Sorry for being away the last few days. Just a little cramped for time lately. Just a quickie, most of the Jack of all Trades episodes that were up on You Tube awhile ago have been re-added. Some of season 1 is online and pretty much most of season 2 is up on there. I will post the links to all of the episodes once they are all back up but you shouldn't have a problem finding any of the episodes. Adweek also did a critique on Bruce Campbell's Old Spice ad, which is also posted on Bruce's site. You can read the critique here. I'll be back full time tomorrow. I Just didn't want anyone to think this site was shutting down.

Koepp Writing 'Spider-Man 4', What does this mean for Bruce?

Sony has hired writer David Koepp to scribe Spider-Man 4. Koepp co-wrote the first Spider-Man film and has penned the final script for the fourth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise. Here is an excerpt from Movie Hole about Koepp and our buddy Sam Raimi:

"Indiana Jones 4" scribe David Koepp (whoalso did a 'little bit' of writing on the first "Spider-Man" film) tells ComingSoon.net that the studio is so ecstatic with “Spider-Man 3” – a rough cut was recently previewed to the employees of the Culver City compound – that they’ve asked him to write a fourth one...as for director Sam Raimi? He’ll likely be retained in some capacity – probably produce the film; I'm guessing – but as far as I can gather, the man is ready to move beyond the world of the Daily Bugle."

So if Bruce is playing Quentin Beck in the upcoming Spider-Man 3, we have to wait and find out if Koepp will be writing Mysterio into his script for the fourth movie. You can read the full article here.

Ryan Ward from 'The Evil Dead Musical' Says He Doesn't Look Like Bruce Campbell

Ryan Ward, who plays Ash in The Evil Dead Musical, was interviewed today by Broadway World and had the following to say about his resemblance to Bruce Campbell:

“They tell me that but I don’t think I look like him in real life. When I’m on stage wearing the outfit and the hairdo and the facial expressions, I bear a resemblance to him. I never thought I did but everyone has been saying otherwise.”

It's all about the chin. You can read the full article here.

'Supernatural' Carries The Spirit of 'The Evil Dead'

The cast and crew of the CW show Supernatural did a press junket today and there was one comment that interested me. When talking about the essence of the show, creator Eric Kripke said the following:

"because at the end of the day, the whole concept of the show is two brothers on the road with chainsaws in their trunk, battling things that go bump in the night."

That's exactly how Sam Raimi describes the Evil Dead movies, except there is only one guy with a chainsaw, Bruce. "Things that go bump in the night" is a common phrase that Sam Raimi coins to describe the first two Evil Dead movies and some of his latest movies he produced for Ghosthouse Pictures with Rob Tapert. I heard one blogger on the internet say that this is an indirect invitation for Bruce to come on the show, but that's just wishful thinking. The connection that Supernatural creator Eric Kripke has to Sam Raimi is that Kripke wrote the 2005 horror movie Boogeyman for Sam Raimi and Ghosthouse pictures. I did do some digging up and I found that Bruce did a celebrity review of an episode of Supernatural about a year ago. Here are some excerpts from that old review he did of the Supernatural episode "Hell House" for Entertainment Weekly:

" For the most part I had fun watching, but the show is too damned conservative for what it purports to be. While Supernatural is about scary things, its pace is too earthly — if not downright gravitational — to be frightening. With regard to the lead actors, my Poser Meter was reading a steady 25 percent (100 percent would be out of control), and while their style may be ''natural,'' these handsome thespians not only failed their chemistry test, they also seemed more bored than afraid. I'd like to remind all modern-day actors that it's okay to look at each other occasionally during a scene."

Nothing else going on in the Bruce world today but I thought I would just share that. Maybe we might see Bruce on Supernatural one day. You can read the full press junket for Supernatural here.

Xena Con Report: Rob Tapert Tackles The 'Xena' Movie Rumors

Well Dogged Blog has daily been releasing the stories that went on during the Xena convention this past weekend and I recommend all the Xena fans over here head over there for a really in depth report of events. The most intriguing thing that I read, which I will talk about right now, is Rob Tapert responding to the Xena movie rumors. Here is an excerpt involving Rob Tapert's response to a Xena movie:

["Rob says they'll be doing q&a. He says the first question will probably be, "is there going to be a Xena feature"? [He] Says the people at Universal say the feature has a future, but not with Lucy and Renee and not for ten more years...[Rob] says there is interest, but he can't make any promises, but he said, "If I was a betting man, I'd say something's going to happen." "It's a matter of what's a story, what would happen, what would they do? One thing that keeps the people very interested is doing something that would enable them to it "outside the box" - computer etc. I'm only concerned with, is there a good story to tell... two hours of great entertainment."]

So its conflicted on whether a Xena movie starring Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor will happen as of this point. Rob Tapert obviously wants to make a movie that continues from the events of the TV show but Universal seems to want to restart the franchise. We probably will never see the return of Bruce Campbell as Autolycus. You can read the full source of the information here.

Note: We've been having problem with spammers posting comments lately. Feel feel to comment even if a spammer has already infiltrated the comment section with a post. I will just delete the spammer comments later in the day and leave the rest.

Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert's 'The Messengers' Release Date

Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert's next project they are producing from Ghosthouse Pictures is called The Messengers, which stars Dylan McDermott and Penelope Ann Miller. Skeptics are saying that this film will "bomb" at the box office because of the lack of promotion and because of the over saturated market for horror movies these days. Soon we will find out because the release date is real soon, February 2nd. Bruce Campbell unfortunately does not appear in this movie but hopefully he will be at the premiere. Joseph Lo Duca, Sam Raimi's longtime composer (until Sam went mega-Hollywood) is back with Sam and Rob to score the film. I don't understand why Ghosthouse can't just make a horror movie for Bruce. Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert's next producing project for Ghosthouse is a sequel to the film Boogeyman. Boogeyman 2 is reportedly starring Renee O'Connor (Gabrielle from Xena). This is ironic because Lucy Lawless was in the first Boogeyman. You can watch the trailer for The Messengers here.

Kurt Russell Is The "2nd Coolest Bad Ass" Next To Bruce Campbell

Slow news day. Movies Online had an article on the new Stargate movies that MGM is planning and they talked about how the star of the original Stargate movie, Kurt Russell, comes second only to Bruce Campbell on the cool factor. Here is an excerpt:

"Two new StarGates films have been confirmed to be in the works by MGM and we have the plot for both from ComingSoon. I really did enjoy the first StarGate film since it had a dark angle to it and starred Kurt Russell the 2nd coolest bad ass in Hollywood behind Bruce Campbell."

They did both do Escape From LA together. Kurt Russell actually asked Bruce for his autograph on the set because Russell's son was a huge fan of Bruce. News should be picking up soon as far as Bruce goes. I'll be back tomorrow. You can read the full Movies Online article here.

New 'My Name Is Bruce' Pictures Emerge

I know everyone has been craving some My Name Is Bruce news, well I got the next best thing, some pictures. With all the excitement over Bruce's Old Spice commercial, alternative Bruce news has been coming in slowly, but these two pictures (which you can see on the sides) have surfaced. The pictures seem to be behind the scenes shots during the filming of My Name Is Bruce. It's evident that the pictures are from My Name Is Bruce is because the Hawaiian shirt that Bruce is sporting is the same one from a few of the recent pictures that have been leaked. Bruce looks to be in top form. The picture on the left looks to be of Bruce going over the script and the picture on the right looks to be of Bruce either getting his nails done or getting a band-aid slapped on his finger. Just a recap, My Name Is Bruce is a film starring and directed by Bruce Campbell, in which Bruce is mistaken for the characters he plays in the movies and is forced to defend a small town from the things that go 'bump in the night'. The future masterpiece is written by the great Mark Verheiden, who is redefining television as one of the writer/producers of Battlestar Galactica. I hope Bruce can land a guest spot on Battlestar Galactica next season. David Eick, one of the producers of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess is also a producer on the show, so he and Verheiden are familiar with Bruce. Enjoy the pictures everyone, you can click on them to make them larger.

Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi's '6 Months To Live' Online

Another old Super 8 film starring Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi has surfaced online. The film 6 Months To Live is a slapstick short film in which Bruce plays a doctor who tells Sam Raimi he has six months left in his life. Bruce has a huge mustache and draws a funny accent. You can watch the film by clicking on the following links [Part 1, Part 2]. Beware of horrendous picture quality.

Bruce Campbell Old Spice Video Hits 180,000 Views

The main link to the Bruce Campbell You Tube Video, which can be viewed here, has hit just under 180,000 as of now. Its good to know that Bruce still has a huge fan-base and my hope is that we can get this video to 1 million hits but it will be a long shot. There are two NFL Playoff games on this weekend. If there is a new Bruce Campbell Old Spice commercial, look for it to air on a Sunday and not the Saturday, which is what happened last week. But right now, word of a second Old Spice video airing this weekend is all speculation, but we do know that there are more commercials in the works according to the article from the New York Times a few days ago. I'll be back tomorrow.

'Army of Darkness' Is Brighter And Crisper Than Ever On HD-DVD

Slow news day today but blogcritics.org did a review today of Army of Darkness on the new HD-DVD. Many people aren't buying into the whole HD-DVD hype as of yet, but when the players do go down in price, I think Army of Darkness is a movie that some fans might contemplate in buying on HD-DVD. Here is an excerpt on the new video transfer of Army of Darkness on the HD-DVD:

"AoD is an old film, and I recall that the picture was rather grainy and a little murky the last time I watched it. Thankfully, the transfer was well done, for the most part. The picture overall looks brighter and crisper. You can see every pore and wrinkle on Ash's face, and for the first time his blue shirt really looks blue rather than a muddy brown. However, a few scenes retained their grainy look, primarily during the Evil Dead II recap at the beginning of AoD."

Army of Darkness is a classic movie, but I still think in whatever form you watch the movie, whether it be in HD-DVD, Blue Ray, DVD, or even VHS, you will still have a blast and end up cheering when Bruce says "Hail to the King" at the end of the film. There were no special features on the HD-DVD version of the film, so you might as well stick with your DVD version that you all likely have. You can read the full article here.

Bruce Campbell Will Not Be At The 'Xena' Convention This Weekend

Bad news to for those Xenites who are going to the biggest Xena convention on the planet down in Burbank this weekend, Bruce Campbell won't be there. According to IESB, the guest list includes Lucy Lawless, Michael Hurst, Rob Tapert, Robert Trebor, Adrienne Wilkinson, Renee O'Connor, and many more. Bruce was not mentioned. The convention runs this weekend on January 12th, 13th, and 14th. The Xena Con has been running annually since 1995 and it celebrates the shows of both Xena: Warrior Princess and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. You can click here for more information.

Bruce Campbell Old Spice Commerical Looks To Be The First Of Many, Hi-Res Downloadable Quicktime Version Of The First Commerical Also Available

First off, there is a high resolution Quicktime version of the Bruce Campbell commercial for Old Spice available for download by clicking here, this beats having to go onto You Tube every time to watch the video. Next off, The New York Times had an article on Old Spice's new marketing campaign yesterday, and commented on Bruce Campbell as their new spokesman. Here is an excerpt:

"Print ads will offer wry captions for photographs of subjects like a shepherd (“This man loves sheep”), a woman eating an ice cream cone and a foot-long frankfurter. And commercials will feature a puckish spokesman, the actor Bruce Campbell of the droll “Evil Dead” movies, sending up the concept of taking advice from your elders."

The article specifically says "commercials" (plural) will "feature a puckish spokesman", of course that's our Bruce. So don't be surprised if you see a totally new commercial this weekend during the NFL Playoffs, but it's not a guarantee. So it looks like Bruce is gonna be in this Old Spice gig for the long haul and hopefully there will be some more inside jokes in the next commercials, like they did with the chainsaw in the first one. Hopefully a shotgun will pop up in the next commercial. Make Love! The Old Spice Way.

Bruce Campbell Old Spice Commerical Is Online

Enjoy by clicking here. Notice that there is a chainsaw by the fireplace when Bruce is first sitting down. The whole commercial has the same feel as the cover for Make Love! The Bruce Campbell Way. Thanks to Dimitris and the anonymous tipster.

Bruce Campbell Old Spice Commerical Has Yet To Hit The Web

There has been mad hysteria all over the web over Bruce's new Old Spice commercial. If you have no clue what I am talking about, check back at yesterdays post. It looks like that the Old Spice promo aired during the commercials of the NFL playoffs and will soon being playing during other programming. I still have yet to see the commercial because I live in the great white north of Canada. In Canada, whether you have satellite or cable, the American commercials that are played during the CBS broadcast are replaced by local Canadian commercials as long as a Canadian network is relaying the same NFL game. If your confused, don't worry, Canadians will know what I'm talking about. For once I am saying "Blame Canada" because I'm dying to see this Bruce commercial. Mark Verheiden, the writer of My Name Is Bruce, wrote a message on his blog asking people to post a link if anyone finds a link for the video. So far, on Verheiden's blog, my blog, and the rest of the darn internet, it hasn't gone up. But don't worry, it will pop up soon if you haven't seen it yet. I'm checking You Tube every 10 minutes.

Note: 2 other pretty huge posts in the Bruce world. So much happening today, I couldn't think of which should go as the top story. The other two posts are on My Name Is Bruce and Bubba Nosferatu.

'My Name Is Bruce' Will Have Chainsaws

Mark Verheiden, the writer of My Name Is Bruce, has updated his blog and gave us the following update:

"MY NAME IS BRUCE. Directed by and starring Bruce Campbell, written by yours truly! And yes, THERE WILL BE CHAINSAWS. "

A lot of Bruce fans have been wondering if Bruce will get his chainsaw from the Evil Dead movies (the one that clips onto his arm in 2 and 3) but Verheiden doesn't specify if this is the case. Either way, Bruce with a chainsaw will be KILLER. You can read the full post here.

'Bubba Nosferatu' Begins Pre-Production

Yesterday was the anniversary of Elvis' birthday, so in the spirit of The King, 411mania gave us a small update regarding Bubba Nosferatu. Here is an update:

"On a semi-related note Bubba Nosferatu and the Curse of the She-Vampires is in pre-production with Bruce Campbell returning as Elvis/Elvis impersonator Sebastian Half and Paul Giamatti as manager Colonel Tom Parker."

Its not really specific on what is being done in the pre-production stage right now but you can read the source of the news here.

Bruce Campbell Is The New Spokesman For Old Spice Deoderant

This is NOT a joke. According to Bruce himself on his website, Bruce is the new spokesman for Old Spice and has been featured on the latest commercials that have been airing during NFL playoff weekend. Here is the post by Bruce from his website:

"Raise your hand if you saw this one coming. Bruce Campbell is the new spokesman for Old Spice. What!? All I know is that I wore Old Spice deodorant while we were making My Name Is Bruce, and all of a sudden, Bruce is the spokesman. Hmmm...The Old Spice commericals featuring Bruce Campbell will begin airing during CBS Football the weekend of 01/06/07. Watch, buy, and attract."

Wow. I can concur with Bruce's website and say that I didn't see this one coming. That's some of the weirdest Bruce news ever. I guess I'm gonna have to sit down and watch some NFL playoffs today and hopefully have my VCR ready to record Bruce's new commercial. This isn't the first commercial that Bruce has been in. I remember him being an extra in some weird commercial that was only in Spanish and he was also in the commercial for the first Evil Dead game Hail To The King, which was the funniest commercial ever. The video for the Old Spice Commercial should be popping up on You Tube soon, but until then, if anyone finds a link for the video, e-mail it to me. Other than that, hopefully I can have my VCR ready when it happens. Regarding the commercials, I wonder if Bruce acknowledges who he is in the commercials or plays a totally different character. Now Bruce is on T.V. every hour. I'll keep you posted as always. Bruce is King. Leave comments. I'll keep hammering away at this blog and hopefully I'll meet Bruce one day, but maybe I should just go buy some Old Spice because I think the smell of its deodorant is the closest I will ever get to being in the presence of greatness.

USA Network Hasn't Yet Committed To The 'Burn Notice' Pilot

For those of you who have been hiding in a cave as of late, Bruce has gotten a new show called Burn Notice in which he plays a supporting role. The USA Network, which is home to shows like The Dead Zone and The 4400, have green lighted and filmed the pilot for the show but has yet to commit to picking up the pilot and ordering more episodes for the show. Burn Notice centers around a international agent (Jeffrey Donovan) who is has been terminated by his employers and with the assistance of a group of colleagues, helps the people who can't go to the police. Kind of like the A-Team of sorts. Bruce plays the muscle in the show who is an ex Naval Seal. According to 411Mania, the USA Network greenlighted the production of 3 pilots for their network and recently gave one of the pilots a full season committment (11 more episodes because USA Network only does half seasons). The other two shows, To Live and Die in LA and Bruce's new show Burn Notice have yet to be committed to by the USA Network. Here is an excerpt from the article:

"USA has given an 11 episode commitment to Mary Sunshine, starring Mary McCormick as a federal marshal trying to balance her work in the witness relocation program with having a personal life. No word yet on the fate of To Love And Die In LA and Burn Notice, the network's other two big pilots."

Don't Overlook Bruce's Role In 'The Woods' As A Cameo

There was no Bruce news today so I thought I would talk about The Woods. I finally sat down to watch the movie this evening, mostly because Bruce was in it, and so I wasn't expecting much as far as Bruce's role in the film. Although I won't go into too much detail about the film, Bruce plays the father of the lead character who attends a creepy all girls school that is located in the middle of the woods. Those who haven't seen the movie think that Bruce has a minor or cameo role in the film. I must admit, I ignorantly thought this as well before I watch the movie. The Woods was a descent film, no where close to The Evil Dead movies, but Bruce actually had a big role in the film and sheds out his often underused emotional side to his craft of acting. The only problem is that the main chunk of the film with Bruce is in the last quarter of the movie, but you won't be disappointed when you see it. Without giving a way too much, there is a moment where Bruce get's an axe and goes all Evil Dead-esque, it was awsome. For a moment, Bruce's performance of going all Evil Dead-esque and such made me think he was Ash in Evil Dead IV. I'm not saying that The Woods is a great movie, but Bruce's performance in the last chunk of the film was nice to see again and reassures me that when Sam does give Bruce the call to strap up on the chainsaw and grab the shotgun one last time, Bruce will be ready. The movie is at least worth the rental for Bruce fans.

Note: One other post for today on Kevin Sorbo. I don't usually post much Sorbo stuff on here but I feel that if I post some Lawless stuff then I am obligated to post Sorbo stuff. I'll see how the response is.

Kevin Sorbo's 'The OC' Cancelled

Kevin Sorbo appeared this season as the father of the lead character in the much hyped teen drama The OC. If you haven't heard yet, Darkhorizons, IMDB, and every possible news site is distributing the FOX press release saying that the show has been cancelled. So, this means that 'Big Kev' is going to be out looking for another project to work on. Kevin has already finished filming on two sequels to Walking Tall starring the Rock. The two Walking Tall sequels are both starring Sorbo and will be going straight to DVD.

'Aqua Teen Hunger Force: The Movie' Will Get A Full Theatrical Release

Bruce will be making a small appearance in the animated film Aqua Teen Hunger Force: The Movie. A movie version of the television characters, Aqua Teen Hunger Force follows the adventures of fast food items as they battle fierce enemies like exercise equipment. Bruce Campbell plays a 'chicken nugget' in the film. A press release was unveiled today which said that First Look Pictures has signed on to distribute the film in a full theatrical release. So pretty much, you can go see this movie at any major theater when it comes out. Here is an excerpt courtesy of the Zap2It press release:

"First Look Pictures has signed on to distribute Adult Swim's animated film "Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters" on more than 800 screens...In the action-adventure epic, fans will get uncover the tasty trio's mysterious past. Apparently, the Aqua Teen Hunger Force finds themselves in danger when an immortal piece of exercise equipment theatens the balance of galactic peace...The original cartoon's voice talent will reprise their roles in the film, along with guest stars, including: Maiellaro (Err, Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past)...and Bruce Campbell and Neil Peart."

The film is due in theaters March.

Bruce Campbell's Agent Get's A Promotion

So The Hollywood Reporter had a huge article on the APA Talent Agency and how two agents were promoted to partners in the massive company. One of the agents, Barry McPherson, is the agent for our hero Bruce Campbell. Here is an excerpt:

"APA has upped agents Barry McPherson and Josh Humiston to partner...McPherson, whose roster includes Josh Cooke, Jorge Garcia, Will Sasso, Gary Dourdan, Crispin Glover, Bruce Campbell, Tony winner Viola Davis, Tichina Arnold, Christine Ebersole, Beverly Mitchell, Ron Perlman and John Rhys Davies, will remain vp talent and oversee the agency's New York theater department."

It's cool that Bruce Campbell and Ron Perlman have the same agent because about a month ago, Hellboy Director, Guellerimo Del Toro, said he would have cast Bruce in Hellboy 2: The Golden Army if he was given the greenlight to use one of the characters from the Hellboy comics. Since Bruce's agent is getting a big promotion, maybe Bruce can land some 'A' movies to star in, but I think Bruce fans like his upcoming lineup of films just fine- My Name Is Bruce and Bubba Nosferatu.

Bruce Campbell's 'Hercules' Episodes Online

It seems whenever the Holidays come around, Entertainment news seems to go dead. Sorry for not posting for the last few days, I don't do that often. Hopefully since the Holidays are finally done, Bruce news will be coming in full steam.

The other day I put up all of the links for the Xena episodes that Bruce was in, so this time I am putting up all of the links for all the episodes that Bruce was involved in for Hercules.
