Yesterday I was on the road all day travelling and had no internet access and as a result was unable to post this important news until today. This is one of the most important days of the year because it’s the birthday of one of the greatest horror champions of all time Bruce Campbell.
Bruce Campbell was born June 22nd 1958 and like a fine wine is getting better each year.
Bruce Campbell is a legend who is best known for his work in Evil Dead but went on to have a healthy career as an actor starring in all kinds of ridiculous b-movies including Alien Apocalypse and Man with the Screaming Brain but also legendary films like Evil Dead, Army of Darkness and of course one of the greatest new horror releases, My Name is Bruce which was a parody of his role in the genre.
Bruce Campbell has also gained mainstream admiration for his role in the series Burn Notice as a not so smooth talking, hard-drinking ex spy. Bruce through his long time friendship with Sam Raimi has also been featured in bit roles challenging the great and powerful OZ and even taking on Spider-man.
Bruce Campbell is an icon. Bruce Campbell is a legend. In a genre that is to fixated on big breasts and shiny white teeth Bruce Campbell stood out as a leading man with wit, talent and charm and will forever be one of the greats.
Happy Birthday to the S Mart Ass Kicking champion that we affectionately call ‘The Chin’.
