If Chins Could Kill by Bruce Campbell

This autobiography is both very funny and has a lot of interesting bits and pieces about his career.

Have you read/heard his book 'Make Love - the Bruce Campbell Way'. We have the audio version, which is acted out with a bunch of his friends. It is awesome.

It's a fictional story about Bruce being cast in an A-list film with Renee Zellweger and Richard Gere, directed by Mike Nicholls, narrated by Bruce.

Much fun :)

Yep, the person who lent me this one has that as well. So I may get to it soon. I'm not sure that a novel with real people in it appeals as much as his actual life (although I'm pretty sure some of those anecdotes were exaggerated somewhat).

My favourite bits tend to be the anecdotal stuff about his past film-making escapades, and the ridiculous 'research' that he does for his character. It's seriously the way a roleplayer in a Cthulhu game who'd had way too much sugar would approach 'research' for an acting role:

My character (a doorman) is from the South, and has good manners. I know, I'll disguise myself as a Southern Gentleman and infiltrate a gentlemen's club!

My character gives good relationship advice? I'll convince a wedding-arrangement service to take me on for a week and plan a high society wedding!

Very silly...
