Happy Birthday Bruce Campbell!

"Gimme some sugar, baby..."

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of our favorite actors - OF ALL TIME - Bruce Campbell!

We just LOVE LOVE LOVE him.

Bruce is one of those "B" list character actors that makes every movie he is in SO MUCH BETTER. We consider him "A" list. Why Hollywood never made him the leading man we'll never know because he kicks ass and takes names doing what he does best...being Bruce.

He has a cult fan base like no other. We are all such LOYAL fans.

He has been on the USA TV show Burn Notice for the past few years, racking up legions of new fans. In fact, his character, Sam Axe, is so popular that USA gave him it's own TV movie, "Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe".

Everytime Bruce does a meet and greet rabid cult fan up in droves. And he is so nice to his fans.

We got to meet him in Philadelphia a few years back and HE IS SO AWESOME in person. Nice, down to earth, unassuming and just pleasant.

His resume at IMDB is off the chart. He's been in hundreds of TV shows and movies. He is listed as actor, director, producer and writer as well. He is talented beyond belief.

His childhood friend, Sam Raimi, is one of the most respected Hollywood directors and you may know his little brother, Ted Raimi, as Joxer from the Hercules/Xena shows...of which Bruce starred in as well.

Sam directed Bruce in the cult hit "Evil Dead" which to date remains one of the most successful horror films of all time. The third sequel "Army of Darkness" came out in 1992 and was a commercial success. A special DVD called "Bruce Campbell vs The Army of Darkness: Boomstick Edition" and is one of our favorite collectibles.

Suffice it to say, if you like Bruce, you REALLY like Bruce. He is a Hollywood favorite.

The TV show western "The Adventures of Brisco County" is on DVD. RENT IT. Bruce is fantastic as the lead character, Brisco, on a mission to revenge his father. It was the best TV show Fox ever made.
