Bruce Campbell injured on Burn Notice set

Bruce Campbell cutieIn case you didn't know it, Bruce Campbell is my new BFF. Ever since my visit to the set, I have a new appreciation for the man. So, it pains me to report that Bruce recently was filming in Miami when he came up lame.

While chatting with Maureen Ryan of the Chicago Tribune, creator Matt Nix was talking about the new season of Burn Notice -- more on that below -- when he casually mentioned Bruce Campbell was hurt on the set. "He actually just pulled his hamstring doing a stunt, I just got a call, he's on the way to the hospital."

Excuse me! The hospital. That's Bruce, man, aren't you concerned? I am. Apparently, trouper that he his, Bruce wasn't worried about himself, he was thinking about Sam, his character. "He called me on the way to the hospital to say, 'Here's my idea of how we'll write it into the show.'"

Like me, Nix has a crush on Bruce. Okay, I have a crush; he just admires him. He loves the Bruceness of him. To me, that's like the cool of Sinatra. Nix told Ryan, "I kind of don't know what the show is without Bruce. We were incredibly fortunate to get him. That character [of Sam] is one thing, then there is that Bruceness to him as well. The Bruceness is irreduceable [laughs]. It's hard to put your finger on. ...I think he buys us a lot of goodwill."

There's more news from Burn Notice on the casting front: Michael Shanks has been cast as Victor, another spy who was burned like Michael. Shanks, you may recall was Daniel on Stargate SG-1. Victor shows up in the second episode and will be on at least four episodes. When Jeffrey Donovan was asked to describe Victor, he told Ryan, "Victor is what Michael would be if Michael had rabies." Eww!

Nix added: "We have some other fun guest stars, Oded Fehr (Sleeper Cell), Larry Miller (Dirt) is in the fourth episode and also Andrew Divoff (Lost)."

Burn Notice is a truely entertaining show, funny, intriguing, visually stimulating with Miami as a backdrop.

Why aren't there more shows like this? Obviously the audience size on USA is limited, but it works.

Can they budget "Women's Murder Club" another winner
in terms of the character chemistry.

If he's not in a show he doesn't get paid. Just a reminder.

I've been a BC fan for a lonnng time. I loved him on the Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.! I hate to hear that he was injured but being concerned about his role instead of making it all about him he shows real integrity. Speedy recovery Bruce.
