Bruce Campbell surprised his fans on Twitter yesterday with an “audition tape” where he unveiled his new nautical look for the fictional Titanic II: Resurrection.
Bruce Campbell has been pranking his fans lately on Twitter giving them a pleasant diversion from quarantine life. Yesterday, the actor struck again. This time with a faux audition tape for none other than James Cameron.
A couple of weeks ago, Campbell posted a picture of his new look on the social media platform. Joining the ranks of other celebrity men who have chosen to forego the razor, the thespian was definitely sporting a slightly rugged visage.
For his reading of the purely fictional Titanic II: Resurrection, Campbell is giving Willem Dafoe a run for his money in The Lighthouse.
Totally outfitted with the look of an “old salt” complete with an awesome Captain’s beard (that we sincerely hope he keeps!), Bruce channels his inner Quint from Jaws crossed with Sean Connery in The Untouchables, to deliver a hilarious monologue to his crew about his fear of icebergs.
There’s a lot going on out there, but beards gotta grow and this driveway ain’t gonna blade itself! pic.twitter.com/ulVpjCaBiR

Trust us, you have to see it to believe it. In retrospect, maybe he is also conjuring up Gregory Peck’s ghost as Captain Ahab in the 1956 epic film, Moby Dick based on Herman Melville’s classic novel. When you watch his short video, you can just hear him uttering the famous line, “From hell’s heart, I stab at thee.”
In all seriousness, Campbell’s posts are like a breath of fresh air in what can be a depressing social media landscape. He really knows how to lighten the mood and quite frankly, we enjoy this goofy side of him.
I got to thinking, Titanic made so much money, it’s ridiculous that they haven’t made a sequel. So, I decided to proactively audition for the ship captain in Titanic II: Resurrection (personally, I think I nailed it). Watching, James Cameron? pic.twitter.com/yLOqDFjRvj
