“My Name is Bruce” starring Bruce Campbell Opens In Theatres Soon
October 24, 2008
Legendary B-movie actor Bruce Campbell plays himself in MY NAME IS BRUCE, which he also directed.  The film, distributed by Image Entertainment, begins its national platformed release October 31st – Halloween – in New York. 

Bruce will be introducing the film at the theatre and doing a post-screening Q&A with the audience on opening night in each city.  The most current list of market openings is noted below. 

In MY NAME IS BRUCE, Bruce is mistaken for his character Ash from the Evil Dead trilogy and forced to fight a real monster – a nine-foot-tall sword-wielding Chinese god of war – in a small town in Oregon. Mortified at first, Campbell decides to enjoy his stab at protecting the innocent until the situation turns decidedly gruesome.  Confronted by a monster that’s not a guy in a rubber suit, and with the blood of innocents on his hands, Bruce must abandon his slothful Hollywood ways.  In a climactic, mano-a-monster battle, he is forced to finally rise to the occasion and become a hero…in real life.
MY NAME IS BRUCE is produced by Bruce Campbell and Mike Richardson (for Dark Horse Indie) and was written by Mark Verheiden.  The film stars Bruce Campbell, Grace Thorsen, Taylor Sharpe, Ted Raimi, Ellen Sandweiss, Danny Hicks and Tim Quill.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
