Big casting news for Starz’ Ash Vs Evil Dead, and by big, we mean awesome. It turns out that Ash has a pops, and the casting is just about as perfect as anyone could imagine. 1970s and 1980s TV action hero and broad chinned icon Lee Majors (The Six Million Dollar Man) will take up the role of Brock Williams, father to Bruce Campbell’s (Burn Notice) Ash. Bask in the pure glory of that for a moment, Ash’s dad is the bionic man.
That isn’t the only exciting news for the Starz series either. Ted Raimi (Xena: Warrior Princess), brother to Evil Dead director Sam Raimi, and a frequent player in Raimi’s films and TV work has been cast in the role of Chet Kaminski, Ash’s childhood friend.
Ash’s pre-cabin adventure past has never even been hinted at in the characters near 35 year history. Even without the amazing casting, the presence of these characters and what it means to Evil Dead lore will be HUGE for fans of the franchise.
