I thought this was a joke when I first read it. But, apparently, b-horror movie star Bruce Campbell (most famous for his Evil Dead, and Evil Dead 2 roles) will be playing himself in a horror flick spoof, called My Name Is Bruce.
Set to start filming in Oregon at beginning of August, My Name Is Bruce is said to be a spoof of his past-life horror flick stardom, where he’s on the set of a movie (presumably a horror flick) and get kidnapped. His kidnapper forces him to act as one of the characters from his past flicks.
Funny? Probably will be.
Surprisingly, here’s some movies that Bruce Campbell did cameos in, that we would never have known: Spider-man, The Ant Bully, Sky High, Spider-man 2, Serving Sara, The Majestic, Fargo, and Escape From L.A. As well as notable TV shows such as Ellen, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Homicide: Life On The Street, The X Files, Xena: Warrior Princess, and Hercules.
The movie does not yet have a scheduled release date, but you can bet we’ll be at the theater that day. After recently watching Evil Dead and its sequel (quite possibly the weirdest movie I’ve ever seen), I need to see anything this guy’s in.
