Bruce Campbell Will Travel to Sam Raimi’s ‘Oz’

By  · Published on August 7th, 2011

Like a Johnny Depp casting announcement for a Tim Burton movie, there’s no real surprise that Bruce Campbell is going to be in Sam Raimi’s Oz: The Great and Powerful.

The actor revealed as much through twitter on Thursday, stating:

“I. Am. In. Oz. Sam Raimi refuses to tell me what character I will portray. Just know that the role is PIVOTAL.”

That’s great news, especially for Campbell diehards, but his use of the word “pivotal,” (even in all caps!) should be taken with a huge chunk of salt. He made similar claims about his roles in the Spider-Man films, which turned out to little more than cameos, so don’t be surprised when he shows up as a man that sells Pivots to James Franco.

But, who cares? It’s Bruce Campbell. Thus, it should be awesome.
