Ash Williams’ pop is no less than The Six Million Dollar Man.
TV vet Lee Majors has boarded Season 2 of Starz’s Ash vs. Evil Dead in the role of Brock Williams, the title character’s father, it was announced on Wednesday.
Also joining the horror dramedy is Ted Raimi, who has appeared in all of the Evil Dead features (in assorted roles) and here will play Ash’s childhood BFF, Chet Kaminski. (Raimi’s older brother Sam, of course, is the Evil Dead auteur himself, and serves as an exec producer on the series with star Bruce Campbell and Craig DiGregorio.)
Majors’ TV credits also include, of course, The Big Valley, The Virginian and The Fall Guy, and more recently episodes of Raising Hope and TNT’s Dallas revival. Raimi’s TV credits include Seaquest 2032, Hercules, Xena and Legend of the Seeker.
Season 2 of Ash vs. Evil Dead will premiere sometime in 2016.
