A Q&A with b-movie bestseller Bruce Campbell

“I never set out to become a B movie actor, but fake blood doesn’t wash off so easily.”

So says Bruce Campbell, longstanding acting/producing legend of genre films and TV. He first came to attention as star of the original “Evil Dead,” which was a bargain-basement DIY project with childhood friend Sam Raimi. Campbell developed a reputation for quality across a rich history of quirky acting opportunities — so when Raimi was tapped to direct big-studio “Spiderman” movies, Campbell naturally had to get a bit part. Adoring geeks pointed him out, saying: “Do you know who that is?”

And the legend grew.

Campbell soaked up the attention, and gave back generously. He wasn’t aiming at being the loudest wit dominating his projects; instead, his general persona centered between a charismatic everyman and a tell-it-like-it-is smartass. He was a natural fit for guest-star appearances as conventions for science fiction, horror and comics exploded into their own industry.

If you couldn’t get enough Bruce Campbell on-screen, or at your local comic-con, he landed on bestseller lists with his memoir ”If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor.” He has since extrapolated on some autobiographical tall tales to make a novel: “Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way.” But now it’s time again to set down real-life adventures, and so we have “Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B Movie Actor.”
