Spiderman Easter Egg - Close, Personal Friends of Sam

Sam Raimi, the director of "Spider-Man", is well-known for casting his friends and family in bit parts of his films. S-M is no exception. Here are all of the cameos that I know of (besides Stan Lee, who was already mentioned):

1. Bruce Campbell (who played Ash in the "Evil Dead" films, as well as Brisco County, Jr. and others) appears as the announcer during the wrestling match.

2. Ted Raimi (Sam's younger brother, who played Henrietta in "Evil Dead 2") shows up a couple of times as Hoffman, a staff member at the Daily Bugle.

3. Lucy Lawless (who played Xena: Warrior Princess on TV) pops up as a punk rocker--she says something to the effect of, "Eight arms? Sounds exciting."

4. "The Classic" (Sam's yellow 1973 Delta 88 Oldsmobile Classic, or at least one of its six body doubles) rolls up as Uncle Ben's carjacked automobile. Fittingly enough, it is later crashed into a pole.

5. Sam Raimi himself flashes onto the screen sipping some coffee and talking into a cell phone as Spider-Man flies past him.

Actually, I think it's "Guy with eight HANDS? Sounds hot." I apologize if I'm wrong, and I'm sorry for the slipup in the first place. Anyway...

JK Simmons (Schillinger in Oz, and the voice of the yellow M&M) appears as J Jonah Jameson, Peter's boss. JK also appeared in Sam Raimi's 'the Gift'.
