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.

Raimi Still Doesn't Know If He Will Direct 'Spider-Man 4'

Because I love Spider-Man I would just say—I don't want to pick someone. I don't know if I’ll be directing the picture or not, but I'd like to say that it would be somebody that was the best gift I could give to Spider-Man—someone who understands him and loves him and could bring his passion and love to the character. A character director probably; no one else.

“Maybe six months after the deal died was when discussions started going on internally about what to do with the story,” Katz recalls. “The comic-book idea was always in the back of our heads. Thankfully, Wildstorm and Dynamite [publishers of the ARMY OF DARKNESS comics]—along with New Line—were able to come together and finally bring this to the fans.”

Campbell, Bruce Campbell! 'My Name Is Bruce' Arrives In Ink

This January a 'My Name Is Bruce' one-shot arrives in the form of a Comic Book according to Captain Bluehen, who also supplies us with a sneak peak from the Graphic Novel.. As well, 'The Evil Dead' extended comic book adaptation, written by 'My Name Is Bruce' writer Mark Verheiden will also be out in January. So check your comic book stores. I will likely buy the 'My Name Is Bruce' one-shot but not read it until after the movie comes out.

'My Name Is Bruce' In Select Theatres and DVD in 2008, Possible Sequel Title

Product Reviews had this to say regarding the release of 'My Name Is Bruce'. Bruce's site is saying the DVD is coming out in 2007 but these guys say 2008. Looks like we still do not know.

Also announced is that Image Entertainment is releasing My Name is Bruce in select theatres and on home video in 2008. The movie follows the story of Bruce Campbell as himself, as he is mistaken for his character Ash from the Evil Dead trilogy and is forced to fight a real monster in a small town in Oregon. Apparently, a sequel to that is already in the works and is called: My Name Is Still Bruce.

Bruce Campbell Not In 'Ghost Town'

Cinematical is reporting that Bruce Campbell is joining the movie Ghost Town starring Tea Leoni, Ricky Gervais, Kristin Wiig, and Greg Kinnear. This is FALSE. It's actually Billy Campbell that has joined the film and not Bruce. Here is what Cinematical had to say about Bruce in the movie:

"He has signed on to play Leoni's character's fiance -- the one that the dentist really isn't into. Since this ghostly apparition isn't through Whoopi, I keep wondering if it'll end up with Kinnear taking over Gervais' body to have a second chance with his wife. Or maybe Campbell will go Ash on his ass and take him out of the picture"

Scifiwire and other sources have confirmed that it is Billy Campbell, Bruce's 'name nemesis' playing Leoni's fiance and not Bruce.
