I´ll Be in My Trailer:The Creative Wars Between Directors and Actors John Badham, Craig Modderno
New York Times bestseller One of my dad’s favorite jokes about getting older was: ´´I went out for coffee when I was twenty-one and when I got back I was fifty-eight!” I get what he meant now. Time flies. My first book, If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a ´´B´´ Movie Actor, was published back in 2001 and it chronicles the adventures of a ´´mid-grade, kind of hammy actor´´ (my words), cutting his teeth on exploitation movies far removed from mainstream Hollywood. This next book, an ´´Act II” if you will, could be considered my ´´maturing years” in show business, when I began to say ´´no” more often and gravitated toward self-generated material. Taking stock in the overall quality of my life, I fled Los Angeles and moved to a remote part of Oregon to renew, regroup and reload. If that sounds tame, the journey from Evil Dead to Spider-Man to Burn Notice was long, with plenty of adventures/mishaps along the way. I never pictured myself hovering above Baghdad in a Blackhawk helicopter, facing a pack of wild dogs in Bulgaria, or playing an aging Elvis Presley with cancer on his penis - how can you predict this stuff? The sheer lunacy of show business is part of the fun for me and I hope you´ll come along for the ride. – Bruce ´´Don’t Call Me Ash” Campbell An icon of B movies and a champion of independent filmmaking, Bruce Campbell is an actor, director and writer best known for his roles as Ash in the Evil Dead franchise and Sam Axe on the hit TV show Burn Notice. Written and read by Bruce Campbell. Co-written with Craig Sanborn. Recording and sound design by Sean McCoy at Oregon Sound Recording. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bruce Campbell.

He´s charismatic, talented and extremely sexy. His breathtaking performance as the latest James Bond won him legions of fans and proved that, as well as being an outstanding actor, he coud cut it as an action hero and redefine a cinematic icon to huge critical acclaim. Last year, he was thrust into the spotlight once more as he took the lead role in the hotly anticipated remake of Stieg Larsson´s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Having attended London´s prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama, he hit the big time when he secured a role in the award-winning BBC drama Our Friends in the North. His subsequent roles in Layer Cake and Munich have cemented his position as one of the UK´s finest actors. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Norman Gilligan.
