Yesterday’s Ash vs Evil Dead Comic-Con panel was catnip for all the gorehounds who turned out to see Bruce “El Jefe” Campbell in person—as well as Sam Raimi, Lucy Lawless, Lee Majors, Ted Raimi, Dana DeLorenzo, Ray Santiago and Rob Tapert. Most also participated in a press room earlier in the day.
One big change for the Starz show’s second season, which kicks off on Halloween, is that television legend Majors (The Fall Guy, The Six Million Dollar Man) is aboard to play Ash’s cantankerous father. (Campbell joked that they had to cast Majors, since he’s “the only other actor working in Hollywood who still has hair on his body,” and prompted Majors to give proof.) Majors—who was attending Comic-Con for the first time—explained how he came to be involved with the show.
“When they approached me, I was not that familiar with the show, but I knew what it was,” he admitted during the press room, in a tale he repeated for the panel. “I viewed the first episode, and then I kept viewing and viewing and viewing, all 10 episodes at one time. I said, ‘This is a fun show.’ I never associated so much horror and blood with being fun, but it’s just hilarious, the crew is so good, and the chemistry all seemed to work very well. It’s so well-done, and I don’t mind being a part of it.”
