About this deal

Upon graduating, his parents persuaded him to find a real job—this came in the form of a billboard inspector for the Campbell/Ewald (no relation) advertising agency in downtown Detroit. Throughout Chins, the Detroit-born Campbell exhibits a steadfast sense of reliable Midwestern practicality, tinged with an endearingly cornball sense of humor. To be honest, I don't think I've ever been able to finish any star's autobiography, simply because of the smarm and conceit that laces the pages, and my simple nauseating ethics that keep making me wonder if this person really NEEDS me to contribute another dozen bucks or so to his or her estate.

Chins appeared at the last possible moment before the polymer bladder filled with this slippery cool factor finally popped, exploding its contents across the derelict cabin floor of post-Millennial pop culture. It's an entertaining read detailing the exploits of the man whom you'd think would be a lot richer and more famous than he actually appears to be. He brings a certain ineffable charm to every line, you hear one word and you know it's really Bruce. Don and I were often mistaken as twins, although I still wonder why—his reddish brown hair and hazel eyes were a great contrast to my dark brown hair and muddy brown eyes. At the time of writing this review, the podcast has just covered Army of Darkness (or Bruce Campbell vs.I must preface by saying if you aren’t a fan of Bruce Campbell or the Evil Dead franchise this may be a bit niche for you. For everyone else, it acts as a wonderful reminder for just why they fell in love with him in the first place.

Star of the cult Evil Dead trilogy, he has a CV that ranges from buddy Sam Raimi's Spider-Man, through The X-Files, Xena: Warrior Princess and Burn Notice, to Man With the Screaming Brain, My Name is Bruce and Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film For Theaters. Most recently he wrote the introduction to Josh Becker's The Complete Guide to Low-Budget Feature Filmmaking.

Campbell co-featured in the television series Burn Notice, which was broadcast from 2007 to 2013 by USA Network.It wasn’t hard to spot which ones were bogus— War and Peace isn’t usually paired with The Cat in the Hat on a ten-year-old’s shelf. Along with Bubba Ho-Tep, he played a supporting role in Maniac Cop and Maniac Cop 2, and spoofed his career in the self-directed My Name is Bruce.

Deeply earnest and fiercely funny, this book tells the story of an unlikely star who continues to lead a unique double life as cult movie icon and regular Joe. For some reason, even though Don did " hit, disobey, lie, steal stuff, and destroy," I don’t think my mom would have let Mike off the hook.He has appeared in several of Raimi's movies other than the Evil Dead series, notably having cameo appearances in the director's Spider-Man film series.
