News Bruce Campbell Confirms That He Has Retired from Playing “Elvis Presley” As Well Published 9 months ago on May 2, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Not long after Bruce Campbell made the official announcement that he has retired from playing Ash Williams, we were left wondering what’s next for the legendary actor. Well, it looks like a return in a sequel to Don Coscarelli’s Bubba Ho-Tep is out of the question as well. Campbell was asked a question via his Twitter page about returning as Elvis Presley in Bubba Ho-Tep 2, below is his response: “I have officially retired from playing Elvis as well. Joe and Don both know this. To me, each character has a lifespan. Elvis was best as a one shot deal – an iconic character in a really unique setting, guided by a great director. Why repeat?” It’s a little sad that Campbell won’t be returning to the role, but at least Coscarelli still wants to do a sequel for us horror fans. Since you’re pushing it, I have officially retired from playing Elvis as well. Joe and Don both know this. To me, each character has a lifespan. Elvis was best as a one shot deal – an iconic character in a really unique setting, guided by a great director. Why repeat? https://t.co/K9WqpFGu3X — Bruce Campbell (@GroovyBruce) May 2, 2018 Related Topics: Up Next Scream Factory Resurrects Tarman With ‘Return of the Living Dead Part II’ Blu-Ray!
