Bruce Campbell


Bruce Campbell stars as Sam Axe in “Burn Notice.”

Campbell broke onto the scene in 1979 with the low-budget film, "Evil Dead," in which he starred and co-executive produced. Campbell went on to co-produce the second and third films in the "Evil Dead" trilogy, completing 12 years of work on the cult favorite.

After co-producing "Crimewave," Campbell quickly gained a foothold producing or starring in genre films such as the "Maniac Cop" series, "Lunatics: A Love Story," "Moontrap" and "Mindwarp," a post-apocalyptic "Jeremiah Johnson.”

In television, he first starred in "The Adventures Of Brisco County Jr.," then as a recurring guest-star on the hit show "Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman." Campbell easily made the transition to director, with his debut coming in Sci-Fi’s “Man with the Screaming Brain,” and numerous episodes and recurring as the "King of Thieves" in the #1 syndicated "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys," and its follow-up phenomenon, "Xena: Warrior Princess." He has since expanded his range on television, with appearances in TV movies "Gold Rush," "The Love Bug," "Tornado!," and "In The Line of Duty: Blaze of Glory." His other TV credits include a recurring role on "Ellen," as well as "Homicide: Life on the Street," "The X-Files," "Beggars and Choosers," "Jack of All Trades" and "Bubba Ho-tep."

On film, he had featured roles in the blockbuster "Congo," "Escape From LA," and "Running Time." He followed these up with roles in "Serving Sara," "The Majestic" and the "Spider-Man" series.

Campbell made the leap into other forms of entertainment, and is enjoying his role as an author with back-to-back New York Times bestsellers, and he also enjoyed voicing characters for Disney's animated movie “Cars 2” and TV series "Tarzan," as well as "The Ant Bully."
