Eva and I have often wondered why Bruce Campbell never "made it" as a leading man - he's funny, handsome, charismatic...
Perhaps this recent quote of his illustrates part of the problem:
''All right, you think you're all so smart?'' said Campbell. Then he challenged [the audience] to play studio exec as he pitched one of his past projects. ''I'm Frank Marshall,'' he began. ''I've produced all of Steven Spielberg's movies. Interested? Okay, I've got a book written by Michael Crichton. I'm going to get John Patrick Shanley, the Academy Award-winning writer of Moonstruck, to adapt it. It'll be shot by Allen Daviau, who did E.T. Will you make this movie? Well, congratulations! You just made Congo.''
