USA Network is giving that army of Bruce Campbell fans some sugar, baby -- in the form of a TV movie prequel exploring the earlier, Navy SEAL life of his beer-loving, tropical-shirt-styling "Burn Notice" character Sam Axe.

Word out of Comic-Con has Campbell replying that USA had finally gotten its, um, act together. But he said it in a more Bruce Campbell sort of way, of course. The announcement was a surprise even to the parties involved, Hero Complex reports.

Those who need more Bruce can get it below -- rocking the world of Old Spice years ago, before Isaiah Mustafa ever considered taking his shirt off for the brand.
