Campbell needs no introduction and if he does to you, then you have no
business being on this site in the first
place! (just kidding...or am I?) In approaching Bruce for an
I thought it would be fun to try a new approach, so I made the
questions lighter and more humor-inclined. Bruce ran with them and
here's what went down.
Elvis “The King” Presley alive and kicking in Maui or is he really dead?
BRUCE: Honestly, I can’t answer that
because I have a confidentiality agreement with the Presley estate in
order to do Bubba Ho-Tep.
teen slashers? YAY or NAY?
BRUCE: Big nay. Am I supposed to feel
sorry for a bitchy WB actress?
Arrow: What do
you think your severed hand from "Evil Dead 2" is doing at this VERY
Most likely making methane in a Wadesboro, North Carolina landfill.
Most of that crap was foam and got pitched.
want to shave the edge off; what’s your alcoholic beverage of choice?
I shave the edge with a drink I made up called a Rum Dinger – equal
parts of Meyers dark rum and Kahlua (sp?) on the rocks, or with a
splash of ginger ale. It’s a sweet bastard, but I like it.
SELF: Try that "Campbell Made" mix of a drink...sounds like good shite!)
King, Wendy’s, McDonalds, Denny’s or Popeye’s? Which one talks to
BRUCE: On a book tour, racing from
city to city, I’ll go Sausage McMuffin with egg for the occasional
“eat now or die” scenario in the mornings. BK sucks on all accounts.
No Popeye – ever. Gross. In an all around pinch, Wendy’s works pretty
well for me.
movie have you ever cried at or almost cried at while watching it?
BRUCE: I cried a little during
“Glory”, but I was getting divorced at the time. I almost cried at one
scene in “Midnight Run,” where Robert DeNiro’s estranged daughter
gives him some of her savings to help him out. I almost cried when
Frank Sinatra got gunned down on the train tracks at the end of “Von
If you had to pick (there’s a
gun to your head): blonde, dark haired or redheaded women? What’s
BRUCE: Dark, always. Most “blondes”
are artificial. Blonde is way overrated. The redheaded thing is too
rare to factor in.
the worst job you ever held to support yourself in between acting
BRUCE: Security Guard, and it wasn’t
because of the job itself, it was because guarding beer in Reseda,
California wasn’t where I expected to be at that time in my life.
you mind calling me a “Primitive Screwhead”?
BRUCE: Not at all. Aren’t you one?
Arrow: Name me
one reason why “Arrow in the Head” is one of your favorite horror
sites on the web?
BRUCE: Because I’ve never been there!
ARROW: I respect that!
BRUCE: Stay groovy!
ARROW: You too!
I'd like to thank
Bruce Campbell for humoring me with this little "interview". Not only is
the man as kool as a cucumber, but he also loves his Kahlua and
McMuffins. That's all I needed to hear. Now I know that the dude is
top ranked in my "Class Act" book of slickdom.
Keep up the great work, Bruce!
HAIL TO THE KING BABY!
