Most Crucial Podcast: Evil Dead 2’s Danny Hicks
The Most Crucial podcast is hosted by 104.9 The Edge's Night host Mark 'Franchise' Frankhouse and is recorded throughout the month. Mark is joined in person or over the phone with Local, National, and even International musicians, writers, actors, and people from all sources of entertainment. The show appeals to those who grew up during the "Xennial/ Millenial" era where Nickelodeon, Mtv, Nu-Metal, Cheesy Horror films, "Attitude Era" Wrestling, and all around 80's & 90's fun reigned supreme, while also dabbling into different topics from that and other eras as well.
I got to speak to a Michigan dude who played one of my favorite horror movie characters of all time, Danny Hicks. Born in Pontiac and raised in Farmington Twsp, Danny began his film career as Jake, in the B-Movie Horror classic, Evil Dead 2 starring Bruce Campbell. Hicks would go on to co-star in films with Campbell, including Darkman, Spiderman 2, & My Name Is Bruce. Hicks also touches on his early stage career along with his musical endeavors as well. Get this, Hicks even helped build Kalamazoo's sewage treatment plant! All these cool experiences are documented below in this exciting podcast episode. Watch Below.
