I’d use a lot of them. I’d get Robert Englund in there, Kane Hodder, all the guys I run into in the green room at these conventions. [William] Shatner, I’d get him, whoever. But I’d like to get a lot of the genre people in. I don’t want to exclude them at all. We used Mimi Rogers in the first season. She’s great, because she’s a legitimate actress, and then we fucked with her.Raimi himself was keen on the idea, stating, “Sure, why not?” He expanded upon that statement, “Those guys are really great actors and I think fans seeing them play cameos so I think it’s a great idea as long as they’re right for the role. Casting is everything.” The return of Raimi’s Evil Dead is something we’ve been waiting for 23 years to get.
In the 10-episode “Ash vs Evil Dead”, “Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons –personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its “Evil” grip.”
