Lucy Lawless to Stomp Deadite Ass in the Ash vs. Evil Dead TV Show!
Or maybe she’ll stomp Ash’s ass? It’s not clear yet, but there had better be some Xena-ass-stompage to be found. Aiaiaiaiaiaiai!
Bruce Campbell has confirmed Lucy Lawless will appear in the upcoming Ash vs. Evil Dead tv series in some capacity. After a previous interview in which Lawless made some remarks about Campbell not “ruining her franchise,” he said to Blastr, “Dear Ms. Lawless: Hit your marks, say your lines, or you’re fired,” and, “She’s going to be on the show.”
Yes! Nothing will ever fill the chakram-lined hole in my heart from the lack of Lawless in any of the final season of Parks and Recreation, but this is a nice consolation prize.
Campbell went on to add,
We just added her to our cast, and I got to tell you, I couldn’t be happier. Some actors you work with and you know that you’re going to fail the chemistry test. There are some that you know you won’t fail it. She’s great; I worked with her a lot in the Xena days, and it’s great to have her on Ash vs. Evil Dead.
Details on just what part she’ll play or how involved she’ll be a scarce to non-existent, but Ash himself did mention that her ability to play “extreme characters” would be put to good use, so get excited. Campbell expects her to be a show-stealer just as much as we do:
I expect her to hog every one of our scenes, and I’ll let her because she’s Lucy Lawless; we want her to be happy on the show and we have a very good part for her.
