Description

Most Hollywood biographies are little more than 500-page musings on the ' when-I-met... ' theme, filled with famous names, love affairs and cliche s of a ' meteoric rise' or ' tragic fall' . Bruce Campbell' s If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor is the boisterous antidote to such convention.

Campbell is the ultimate ' B' Movie actor. Star of the cult Evil Dead trilogy, with a CV that ranges from buddy Sam Raimi' s Spider-Man, through The X-Files and Xena: Warrior Princess, to the less-than-glamorous Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters, you' ve probably never heard of him. But his is one heck of a story!

The popularity of Bruce, the cult hero of cable TV and Hollywood' s second rung, is burning brighter than ever, his legion of fans undiminished after over thirty years. Insightful, encouraging and brilliantly funny, If Chins Could Kill! is a brilliant place to start for those unfamiliar with his work. For everyone else, it acts as a wonderful reminder for just why they fell in love with him in the first place.
