Iconic Actor Lee Majors, best known as the 1970’s Six Million Dollar Man aka Steve Austin and 1980’s Fall Guy aka Colt Seavers adds a new genre role to his belt as 2016’s Brock Williams the dad of Ash Williams played by Bruce Campbell. Lee Majors’ Brock Williams joins the cast of Starz’s Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2 that has begun.
As a 77 actor, Lee Major explained his desire to do this role.
Well, mainly the genre of the show, because I’ve done seven series that I know of – that I can remember! – and I’d never done anything associated with horror films. I wasn’t really familiar with the original movies, because I never really went to horror movies. And all the “Walking Dead” stuff, I’ve never seen it. But when they asked me about this show, I said, “Well, let me look at the first season of the show.”
I sat and watched the whole ten shows in one sitting. I got to the end and said, “This is a really, really fun show.” I mean, I was caught up in it, especially with the comedic aspects of it. When Bruce is chainsawing somebody and throwing out these funny lines, it just takes away from the horror.
A nice addition to the cast that also includes former Xena actress Lucy Lawless as Ruby Knowby.
