Mini Bio on Bruce Campbell

Bruce Campbell was born June 22, 1958 to Charlie Newton Campbell and Joanne Louise Pickens in Dearborn, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. He had two older brothers, Mike and Don, and together they were frequently known in the neighborhood for making mischief at nights, most especially the time when they made a fake UFO and sent it at their neighbor's livingroom window. Bruce first got interested in acting watching his father perform at the local community theater, where he also began acting. During middle school and high school, Bruce and his gang of friends, which included Sam Raimi, filmed various Super 8mm films as practice for their big break. He was also known to be a frequent actor in high school plays. After high school, Bruce's acting got a boost when he was apprenticed to a theater in Lansing. After a brief stint in college, lasting six whole months, Bruce and the gang reunited to film several shorts that were screened at the University of Michigan, and sold out every show. Using this as encouragement they filmed their first feature film, "The Evil Dead," which is the leader in video sales in the UK, surpassing even "Titanic", and gave a boost to several careers, including that of the Coen Brothers and Sam Raimi. From here, Bruce began to take acting very seriously, and while acting on a soap opera in Los Angeles met his first wife, Christine DeVeau. After working on a tv series for Fox however, his wife divorced him. He was disconsolate until he met his next wife on another soap opera, Ida Gearon. Bruce's career in the film/tv business has varied throughout the years, and his most recent project is "Bubba Ho-Tep," whose premise is: "An aging Elvis impersonator and a senile black man who thinks he's JFK team up to fight the evil mummy Bubba Ho-Tep in their retirement home," according to the Internet Movie Database.
