High Times senior editor Bobby Black recently sat down for a revealing video interview with the one and only Bruce Campbell.
Campbell, of course, made a name for himself as Ash in the campy horror Evil Dead film trilogy from director Sam Raimi, and will be reprising his iconic role in the upcoming Starz television series Ash vs Evil Dead.
In this High Times interview, Campbell talked about the new TV series, as well as gave his preference for things like joints vs. bongs, indicas vs. sativas, and chainsaw vs. boomstick.
Watch the full interview here below!
A real groovy part of the video is when Black awards the actor with a custom-made, smokable “boomstick.” Good stuff!!!
Ash vs Evil Dead premieres on Saturday, October 31, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT on Starz.
Ash vs Evil Dead
The 10-episode first season of the half-hour series is executive produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, Bruce Campbell, the original filmmakers, and Craig DiGregorio who serves as executive producer and showrunner. “Ash vs Evil Dead,” is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film The Evil Dead.
The cast is led by Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, “Burn Notice”) reprising his role of Ash Williams, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. Rounding out the cast are Lucy Lawless (“Salem,” “Spartacus”) as Ruby a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks, Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick, Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past and Jill Marie Jones (“Sleepy Hollow”) as Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan State Trooper set to find our anti-hero Ash and prove his responsibility in the grisly murder of her partner.
