We’ve known for a while that Ash Vs Evil Dead would have the most inspired piece of casting we’ve ever heard with Lee Majors playing Ash’s dad…

And now we have an image!

Yes, the former Fall Guy will by Mr Williams Snr in the new season of the show and we think he looks so good we actually think he may be Bruce Campbells dad!

As for the show, Campbell reveals that he may get the easier end of the stick this season: “Pablo’s got a crazy journey this year,” says Campbell.

“The stuff he goes through makes my life seem easy. I think we’re going to find out that he’s not just Ash’s sidekick. I don’t think Ray had any idea what was coming. Some of the horrors that await Pablo…”

So how do we meet his dad? “We find Ash right where he wants to be: having keggers, and hanging with chicks, and living the good life in Jacksonville,” says Campbell.

“He’s through with all this business. No strings on him. And what could possibly go wrong, right? [Well] things go massively wrong… things turn south, so the team has to turn north. [This season] it’s ‘Ash goes home.’”

Ash vs Evil Dead returns to Starz in October just in time for Halloween and we think that’s pretty damned fitting.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
