Lee Majors on Ash Vs. Evil Dead, Elvis Presley, and The Six Million Dollar Man

Lee Majors might not have been an overnight success in Hollywood, but he was pretty darn close: he made his on-camera debut in 1964, and by the following year he was playing Barbara Stanwyck’s stepson (not to mention Linda Evans’ stepbrother) on The Big Valley, which kept him occupied for the remainder of the ’60s. This alone was enough to make him a familiar face on the small screen, but after spending five seasons as Steve Austin on The Six Million Dollar Man during the ’70s and five further seasons as Colt Seavers on The Fall Guy in the ’80s, Majors was a card-carrying TV icon.

Since then, Majors has continued to work regularly, and if his full-time gigs in the ’90s and ’00s weren’t quite as high-profile as they were in his heyday, his guest appearances on series like Son Of The Beach, Community, and Raising Hope have shown that Majors isn’t scared to get a little goofy, a trait also demonstrated with his latest endeavor, Ash Vs. Evil Dead. Majors sat down with The A.V. Club during this summer’s Television Critics Association press tour, where he explained how he came to play Bruce Campbell’s father on this season of Ash Vs. Evil Dead, complained about the residual effects of doing his own stunts, and spun stories about working with everyone from Joan Crawford to Elvis Presley.
