    This definitely needs to be redone with Burn Notice references. Great stuff though. Just saw the new Evil Dead. Stick around until the end for the cameo.

  • Kathleen Allen

    bruce really is a class act, for all his snark. i waited in line for 5 and a half hours in july in chicago to get his first book signed. he chatted and posed for pics (and was as clever as you think he would be) before the evil dead showing and then came back after the q&a because the line was so long. as i walked away with my autograph, i heard him tell the theatre manager that he would see every person in line, no matter how long it took. as i left the plaza at 11:30 at night, he was still there. and as long as we're talking fantasy casting. i always wanted james garner and bruce to do a son-father 'maverick' sort of movie. nathan and nicholas brendon are welcome to come along!

    Do you ever stop and think "Damn, my JOB that I get PAID for, is playing around with Bruce Campbell gifs all day. Am I the luckiest person alive?"

  • duckandcover

    The Patton Oswalt gif had me rolling.

    I love Bruce Campbell. Guy is so down to Earth. Every time he opens his mouth, it's obvious that he knows he's kind of a hammy actor who just happened to win the golden ticket and he's happy just riding it out, meeting fans and doesn't at all resent being seen as one character unlike a lot of other actors.

  • John G.

    Joanna! I just heard you on Op Kino. My worlds are colliding!

  • JoannaRobinson

    Oh yes. I get around.

  • PDamian

    True story: I fell in love with my ex when, the first time we had sex, I put my hand down his jeans and cooed, "What's this, then?" and he answered, "This ... is my BOOM STICK!" It was a lovely night, once I finally stopped laughing. We parted amicably a few years later, but it's still one of my better memories. Ladies: always go for the funny guys. And they don't get much funnier than Bruce.

  • Because his real middle name is Lorne.

    Because ... Jack of All Trades:

    Of all the readily obvious, utterly apparent, completely self-evident articles posted on this site, this is easily the most "Duh".

  • AvaLehra

    Bubba Ho-Tep for the win, and of course, he was awesome in Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Seriously! http://youtu.be/YMNHAINIEZs

  • Dave Dorris

    Brisco County 'effin Junior was the shit. Seriously, WTF were they thinking canceling that so soon?

    Oh. Fox? Yeah, sorry.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Dos Equiis really missed the mark. Bruce Campbell IS the most interesting man in the world. Probably the universe.

  • MrsAtaxxia

    I always wanted Bruce Campbell to show up on Buffy as Xander's uncle. I do not believe I am in any way alone in this.

  • chanohack

    My uncle and his Evil-Dead-enthusiast, Army-of-Darkness-quoting friends introduced me to Buffy. One of my first observations was, "That guy looks just like Bruce Campbell," and none of them had EVER THOUGHT OF IT and I blew all the minds.

  • MrsAtaxxia

    It really is uncanny, especially in the early, skinny-Xander seasons. Plus the idea of Joss's dialog being chewed by Bruce is just delicious.

  • Charlotte Preston

    If you think Sherry`s story is nice..., 1 weak-ago my girlfriend's half sister basically made $4423 just sitting there twenty hours a week from their apartment and the're buddy's sister-in-law`s neighbour done this for eight months and got paid over $4423 part time On there computer. apply the guide on this address, Big31.Com

  • Kayla, changing your pseudonym isn't going to convince anyone to read your atrocious wealth fantasies. I happen to have read the previous outings in your bibliography, and they all read like modern retellings of The Great Gatsby, albeit without the depth, character, prose, greatness, or general Gatsbage of the original. I suggest you alope your sorry arse back to Wordpress, where you belong.

  • emmelemm

    I never, ever, ever thought of that. And it is perfect. Damn, if only we have a time machine and weren't opposed to ret-conning and we could make it happen.

  • Don't forgot the Army Of Darkness Game!


  • JenVegas

    Can we make Bruce Campbell and Nathan Fillion be in something together? canwecanwecanwecan?

  • e jerry powell

    When I first read that line, it didn't parse correctly and made me think of something quite pornographic.

    Just sayin'.

  • superasente

    You busted some "Waxworks 2: Lost in Time" on us. I tip my hat to you, Ms. Robinson.

  • manting

    26. Because of the greatest ad ever - bruce campbell old spice http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

  • Enrique del Castillo

    He's the reason I used Old Spice for years!

  • John W

    Hail to the King indeed.

  • Tracer Bullet

    Bruce Campbell is having way more fun than the rest of us.

  • Drake

    I love Bruce Campbell, but this post damn near broke my browser with all the gifs.

  • When I was in college, one of my friends discovered he'd be in a nearby city signing his autobiography. We all piled into cars and headed over and ended up in the very back of the line.

    We were all told he was only signing copies of his book, nothing else. They mean he wouldn't sign DVDs or posters or t-shirts or other things, but while we were waiting, we decided someone ought to grab a copy of Misery, slide it across the table to him, look him right in the eye, and intone, "I'm your biggest fan."

    Tragically, the book store in question didn't have any copies of Misery. We had to come up with another plan.

    I've heard varying accounts of how he treated the book store employees, but I know this for sure: he was great with his fans. He had a chair by the autograph table and he made sure to spend a couple of minutes with each and every fan. He let folks take as many pictures as they wanted. He stayed hours longer than he was scheduled to make sure that every single person in line left with an autograph.

    He also lent his pen to one of my friends so she could use it to write PIE on another friend's forehead. When she returned his pen, it wouldn't work anymore, and he threw it across the room. He still gave both of them autographs, too.

  • emmelemm

    He read from his autobiography in my city and I stood in line with many many crazy people. I believe it was said that he would only be signing books, not "paraphernalia", but people brought all kinds of crazy shit and I'm pretty sure he signed some of it.

    He is made of so much fucking awesome there really aren't any words that cover it.
