Good Morning, Wicked Horror readers. We are pleased to share the first image of Lee Majors (The Six Million Dollar Man) in character as Ash’s dad, Brock Williams, on the set of Ash vs. Evil Dead! We have also learned that Majors will be joined by Sam Raimi’s brother and frequent collaborator Ted Raimi. Raimi will play one of Ash’s childhood friends.
“He’s even grumpier than Ash,” Bruce Campbell told EW regarding his TV dad. The outlet also scored the exclusive on the image you see below.
Season one made its premiere on Starz on October Halloween, last year. This year, the series will make its premiere in September. The series is executive produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, Bruce Campbell, and Craig DiGregorio.
“The cast is led by Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead) in the role of Ash Williams, Lucy Lawless (Spartacus) as Ruby a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks, Ray Santiago (Touch) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick, Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past and Jill Marie Jones (Sleepy Hollow) as Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan State Trooper set to find our anti-hero Ash and prove his responsibility in the grisly murder of her partner.”
