When questioned about the rumor, Campbell told Entertainment Weekly, “I would say that’s a pretty good rumor. I think that won’t get me sued. That’s a pretty good rumor, yeah.”
“If Sam wants a good movie he’ll put me in it,” he added. But he couldn’t confirm the existence of a cameo to EW, mostly because of the way big-studio blockbusters are edited in post-production.
“You never know [with] these epic movies what’s going to stay or go in the course of telling these huge stories, so I don’t know,” Campbell continued. “That’s why I keep it cryptic because (a) I don’t want to get sued but (b) I don’t want to say, “Yeah, hey, tune in!” and then they go, “Where were you, idiot?” So let’s call this an unconfirmed confirmation.
Aside from portraying everyman demon slayer Ash Williams in Raimi’s “Evil Dead” trilogy and the sequel series “Ash vs Evil Dead,” Campbell played supporting roles or made cameos in several other Raimi movies, including “Crimewave” (as Renaldo the Heel), “Darkman” (Dr. Peyton Westlake wearing a new face), “The Quick and the Dead” (“Wedding Shemp,” or a Raimi background extra with no lines), and “Oz the Great and Powerful” (Winkie Guard).
