Early OnEdit

Bruce Campbell was born on June 22, 1958 in Birmingham, Michigan. He went to the same high school as Sam Rami and the two quickly became friends. In 1979, Rami and Bruce raised $350,000 to create a low budget film, The Evil Dead. This film would go on to become a cult hit and created Bruce Campbell's career. The Evil Dead would go on to become a trilogy and get a spin off television show in 2015, all which Bruce Campbell stars in. Campbell can be seen in almost all of Rami's movies.

Affiliation with the Coen Brothers Edit

In 1985, Sam Rami was given the opportunity to direct the film Crimewave. This film saw Bruce Campbell playing the role of Renaldo The Heel. Most importantly Crimewave was written by the Coen Brothers. This was the first collaboration between Rami and the Coen's, which would lead to many more. On set Bruce Campbell became very good friend with the brothers. With his best friend, Sam Rami being in constant contact with the Coen's, he spend a lot of time with them and Frances McDormand. Bruce went on to be a bit part in many of there movies, but never really taking a leading role. Campbell did take a supporting role in the Coen's film The Hudsucker Proxy as Smitty. He would go on to play soap opera actor on TV in both Fargo and Intolerable Cruelty, plus a humane society worker in The Ladykillers. All of those roles are uncredited. Recently Bruce Campbell also played Ronald Reagan on the TV show Fargo, based on the work of and produced by the Coens.
