An actress and film director

An English comedian
Described by the New York Times as “a child’s garden of vices,” actor Russell Brand brings his irreverent, decidedly British sense of humor to his own story of excess, addiction and recovery.

A B-movie star
Revered by cult-movie fans for his lead in the “Evil Dead” franchise, but otherwise ignored as a B-lister by the rest of the Hollywood, Bruce Campbell has the perfect flavor of cynicism that makes for a great tell-all. Plus he’s got a certain body part that always pays his bills. If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor, ‘Evil Dead 4′ on the way, Bruce Campbell confirms,
