Dr. Zaius   |  @   |  

Bruce Campbell Book Signing Cover

Last week, I got a chance to interview Bruce Campbell over the phone. Amongst our topics of conversation were his new memoir, Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B-Movie Actor, a sequel to his 2002 book, If Chins Could Kill, and his upcoming 35-city book tour. Well, yesterday in New Jersey the tour commenced, and I was there with my son to meet the man, the chin, the legend, Bruce Campbell and get my copy of his book. The book signing took place at Bookends, located at 211 E. Ridgewood Ave, Ridgewood, New Jersey.

Interview With Bruce Campbell of ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’
Dr. Zaius   |  @   |  

Ash vs Evil Dead, Season 2 Episode 8

Who is Bruce Campbell? Seriously, this was a question I had to answer for my mother! Bruce Campbell is the King of the B-Actors, a true modern renaissance man. His IMDb page lists over a hundred credits. He’s a producer and director, as well as the author of a New York Times bestseller. But to fans around the world, the answer to the above question is simple: he’s Ash Williams, the chainsaw-handed lothario from the Evil Dead franchise. He’s also my favorite actor, someone I proudly waited 4 hours to meet at a horror convention, and whom I got to interview last year while on vacation with my family inside of Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando. That interview occurred over the phone in the quietest place I could find in a theme park known for loud attractions. A year later, lightning struck a second time. I was privileged to get to interview Mr. Bruce Campbell this month, and had time to discuss his upcoming book, as well as upcoming Season 3 of the Starz hit series Ash vs Evil Dead.

Check out the interview here below.

Daniel Day-Lewis

Daniel Day-Lewis is one of the most prolific actors to date, with three Academy Award wins under his belt, plus a couple more nominations. It’s hard to believe that the actor would ever think about retirement.

However, that seems to be the case. In an official statement from his spokeswoman, Day-Lewis “will no longer be working as an actor.” More on the story below.

Lip Sync Battle Stranger Things

Lip Sync Battle has become a television staple on Spike TV drawing celebrities into outrageous battles where they mouth the lyrics to hit songs while living out real life music videos. Based off the hilarious sketch on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, LSB has hosted top celebrities from Dwayne The Rock Johnson, to Channing Tatum, to Oscar winner Anne Hathaway doing a legendary turn on the wrecking ball for a Miley Cyrus cover. On May 25th, hosts LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen welcomed the cast of one of 2016’s biggest breakout hits, Netflix’s Stranger Things. Instead of a one on one showdown where each performer “sings” twice, this time it was a fatal 4-way featuring Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler), Noah Schnapp (Will Byers), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin Henderson) and Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas Sinclair) each performing one lip sync hit. For fans of Stranger Things and Lip Sync Battle, this was as entertaining an episode of TV you can get.

Check out some of the performances below.

Roger Moore as James Bond

Sir Roger Moore, best known for playing James Bond, has passed away at the age of 89. The news was shared by Moore’s family, who says the actor passed away after a battle with cancer.

The actor is one of the handful to portray Bond since the film series began in 1962, joined by Sean Connery, David Niven, George Lazenby, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and the most recent, Daniel Craig. Moore played Bond seven times from 1973 to 1985 in Live and Let Die, The Man with the Golden Gun, The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, and A View to a Kill. Only Connery has appeared in the role as many times, and no one has played Bond more than that.

Michael Parks

Longtime character actor Michael Parks has passed away at the age of 77, his agent has confirmed. A cause of death has not yet been revealed.

Parks appeared in a great number of things—over 145 credits to his name over the course of his 57-year career—but one needn’t look any further than Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill to know what kind of talent he was. In Tarantino’s two-part revenge epic, Parks played two very different characters: a Texas Ranger named Earl McGraw, and a Mexican pimp named Esteban Vihaio.

Disney In Depth: Recognizing The Next Disney Legends
Brett Nachman   |  @   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

Two years ago, in light of the D23 Expo 2015, I named six individuals paramount to the success of The Walt Disney Company who should be named Disney Legends, the highest honor that can be bestowed. I think it is inevitable that Joe Rodhe, for instance, renowned Imagineer with those awesome earrings, who I contended should become a Disney Legend, will one day attain that honor. This prompted me to reflect on individuals within The Walt Disney Company, whether they have more recently joined the corporation or have been directly or indirectly part of its framework, who have a high chance of being recognized as Disney Legends at some point.

I had planned on publishing a column about the next set of individuals who would likely be recognized as Disney Legends, but The Walt Disney Company beat me to the punch by recently issuing a press release of its nine forthcoming Disney Legends. You’ll have to take my word that I predicted Stan Lee, Garry Marshall, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill would be named as Disney Legends this year. That said, I am excited to share my thoughts on these four, as well as five others, who will obtain this major honor at the D23 Expo.

Legendary Comedian Don Rickles Has Passed Away At 90

Comedian Don Rickles

One of the greatest American funnymen of all time has sadly passed away. Don Rickles, who perfected the art of being the insult comic and spanned generations with his biting yet always loving acerbic quick wit and banter, died today at his home in Los Angeles, CA, of kidney failure. He was 90. He had been battling ill health the last couple of decades, but had retained his razor-sharp mind to the very end.

For my money, he was the funniest man alive. Known sarcastically as “Mr. Warmth,” the Queens, New York native had such a talent and gift for making one laugh, many times even belly laugh, with his quickness. He wasn’t like Groucho Marx or Jack Benny in the sense of the one-liners, but he stood toe-to-toe with them and so many other comedic luminaries in that he was able to rib all of them and scores of Hollywood celebrities, in a manner which exposed a frailty or a kind of tabloid urban legend that had been foisted upon them and then exploiting that foible. Genius examples would be how he would make fun of Dean Martin’s drinking, the ethnicity of people like Desi Arnaz or Ricardo Montalban, or the color of the skin of people like Denzel Washington or Cesar Romero, not in direct terms, but playing on and then hilariously skewering the cliché and the stereotype of it, as politically incorrect as that may seem in today’s ultra-sensitive world.
