Director Sam Raimi instructed his childhood friend and actor Bruce Campbell to impersonate their high school French teacher for his role in new movie Spider-Man 3. Cult star Campbell and Raimi used to make fun of their French teacher back in the '70s, and both instinctively knew how the actor should play his part as a French restaurant maitre d'. He says, "Sam and I had French class in high school. We had a teacher we both enjoyed and we liked making fun of the accent and practising the accent. "When he gave me the maitre d' role, he said, 'Let's do the French thing.'"
