For my fellow Bruce Campbell fans

Portland B-movie lovers, attention: Bruce Campbell and Dark Horse Comics's Mike Richardson are taking part in tonight's taping of the live radio show Live Wire, 8:00 p.m. at the Aladdin Theatre. Tickets are $12 to $15. And the appearance was a worthy excuse for Mike "Culture Pulp" Russell to interview the two of them about their B-movie cred and the pleasure of getting to make their movie My Name Is Bruce in Oregon:

Rebels in the Backyard: Bruce Campbell and Mike Richardson, Uncut

MIKE RUSSELL: It's interesting that you keep referring to "Bruce Campbell" as a character. In "My Name Is Bruce," you play an alternate-universe version of yourself. How do Movie Bruce Campbell and the real you differ?

BRUCE CAMPBELL: Well, the guy in the movie is a creep and a drunk and an idiot and a know-nothing.

MIKE RICHARDSON: He's "Gimme some sugar" Bruce Campbell.

BRUCE CAMPBELL: And I'm worse than that in real life.

MIKE RICHARDSON: You can't even believe it. When we see him now, we ask him, "Please -- play the movie Bruce."

BRUCE CAMPBELL: The fun thing is, if the character's named after you, basically you can do anything you want. Unfortunately, there are gonna be some people who leave the movie and go, "God! I had no idea he was such a jerk!"

You can't fight the people who believe movies are real. There's nothing you can do about that. Those people you torment. Unfortunately, I'm gonna lose a lot of fans because of this movie.
Bruce Campbell. Still The Man.
