Ray Santiago and Dana DeLorenzo have been cast in the new Starz original series Ash vs Evil Dead.
Santiago (Meet the Fockers) will be playing Pablo Simon Bolivar, while DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) will portray Kelly Maxwell in this follow-up series to The Evil Dead franchise.
Bruce Campbell (Burn Notice) will be reprising his role as Ash, now an aged lothario who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility and the terrors of the Evil Dead, but when a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons – personal and literal.
Pablo is an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s sidekick, “a Sancho Panza to Ash’s Don Quixote,” who believes in Ash’s heroism. Kelly is a moody wild child who is trying to outrun her past, but gets dragged into the fight against Evil with Ash and Pablo.
The series is set to begin filming in New Zealand this spring and premiere on Starz in late 2015.
