Entertainment Weekly caught up with Bruce Campbell to ask about his return to his character, Ash, for Starz’ 2015 10-episode horror-comedy series Ash vs. Evil Dead. You’ll be happy to learn that Ash is a little older, but he isn’t any wiser.
“He continues being a trash-talking know-it-all who doesn’t really know anything. He’s the ultimate anti-hero. He’s a guy with no appreciable skills. He’s not a former Navy SEAL, he’s not a former CIA or FBI. He’s no special anything. He’s just a guy from S-Mart, you know? And think that’s part of what people relate too. All these super hero movies—I rather relate to a garage mechanic who gets into a sticky situation. That’s what I look forward to playing—a guy with horrible flaws. In Army of Darkness he can’t memorize three words and he’s responsible for the deaths of a 100 people—this is your lead character!”
