Bruce Campbell's thoughts on Sam Raimi & The Hobbit with Bob Shaye... Can't Post

From rottentomatoes.com:

Bruce Campbell Warns Raimi About Tricksy Hobbits
Direct smart, Campbell says.

by Fred Topel | August 21, 2007

Bruce Campbell knows he's always got a role in a Sam Raimi movie, but if the director indeed takes on The Hobbit for New Line, longtime friend Campbell has some words of warning.

"Well, I hope they pay Sam his overages like they didn't pay Peter Jackson," Campbell said. "Hey, if they ain't paying Peter Jackson overages, I'd be very afraid, but that's me."

Campbell seemed surprised to hear the news that Raimi was in the running. He hadn't heard that even New Line head Bob Shaye is after him. He did have some thoughts on Shaye though. "Bob Shaye-dy? New Lies Cinema? Yeah, these are the guys who distributed the first Evil Dead, don't forget. So, you know, enough said there."

Were all the politics to be worked out, Campbell did consider a Hobbit cameo as "hopefully someone that torments the hobbit. Hopefully someone who's not the hobbit."

Bob Shade-y?!

New Lies Cinema?!

I love Bruce Campbell... what a sharp tongue! I think he'd be great in The Hobbit & I think he'd work beautifully with Peter Jackson (sans Sam Raimi, I hope!).

I (heart) Bruce [In reply to] Can't Post

I've heard some comments he's made about New Line (Lies) in the past, and know he's not a fan. And yes - he HAS to have a cameo somewhere in The Hobbit. What I want to know is how they're going to get Sam's Oldsmobile in there - it's been in all of his films, from 'Evil Dead' to 'Spiderman'.

He could put on the make-up and be one of the gnomes who argues about how to cook the dwarves!

Boycott New Line!

Another reason to LOVE Campbell! [In reply to] Can't Post

What a riot! Okay... he has my vote to voice Smaug. "Save the citizen!" I mean.. "Slay the citizens!"

Trust him... The Hobbit is coming!

"Barney Snow was here." ~Hug like a hobbit!~ "In my heaven..."

It wasn't in "The Quick and the Dead", [In reply to] Can't Post

it wouldn't be in The Hobbit (more's the pity).

I'd love to see an Army of Darkness-style appearance. Bring the car to Middle-earth, kit it out A-Team style and drive it into the spider-pit to save Bilbo. It's be like the Ford Anglia rescuing Harry Potter in Chamber of Secrets.

(Okay, that was more movie references than I've ever fit into a single paragraph.)
