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. Still The Man.
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.
