Campbell started acting when he was a teenager and made some movies with his friends in Super 8 mm format. After meeting Sam Raimi at the institute, the two became good friends and started making movies together.Campbell studied at Western Michigan University, while continuing to work as an actor at the same time he took a job as a taxi driver.
A couple of years later and after fifty small movies, along with Raimi and some relatives, they worked on the movie The Evil Dead. Campbell was the protagonist and worked behind the scenes, receiving the credit of executive co-producer; Raimi wrote, directed and edited. Four years later the film became an object of worship in Britain, which led to the creation of two sequels: Evil Dead II (1987) and Army of Darkness (1992).
The most important role Campbell has played is that of Ashley J. “Ash” Williams for the Sam Raimi movie Evil Dead, the actor has also appeared in other Raimi films. Campbell has always chosen quirky roles, such as Elvis Presley in the movie Bubba Ho-Tep, and most of the time he appears in movies that go straight to video or cable television. In 1988 he starred in William Lustig’s famous film, (starring Tom Atkins and Robert Z’Dar); Maniac Cop, where he played Forrest, a police officer unfaithful to his wife and suspected of the brutal crimes of a homicidal madman. In addition to Bubba Ho-Tep, Campbell worked on the 2005 film Sky High, and stars in the upcoming My Name is Bruce. He is also the narrator of both Spiderman video games based on the films and protagonist of the video game Evil Dead: Regeneration.
Campbell was to star in the movie Darkman (1990), but the studio insisted on Liam Neeson, as they were not sure of Campbell’s ability to play the character, although he did have a small role at the end of the film. Campbell participated behind the scenes, being credited for his voice work, and appears in the last scene of the film.
It was also one of the options to star in the movie The Phantom, based on the popular cartoon character, but the role was given to Billy Zane, who was interested in the work. His partner in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Kevin Smith was interested in being one of Lee Falk’s three enemies.
Campbell has had several cameos in films, and is known to have appeared in different genres, almost always to serve as a comic actor. He has made cameos in all three Spider-Man movies. In the first he played a wrestling presenter who christened “The Human Spider” as “Spiderman”. In the sequel, he played a goalkeeper, Dylan Reid, who criticizes Peter Parker for his appearance and does not let him enter the work of Mary Jane Watson. In the third he acts as French Maître in the restaurant where Peter goes to ask for the hand of Mary-Jane.
