Samuel L. Jackson
For decades, 'Star Wars' fans were secure in the knowledge that lightsabers came in only three colors: red for evil, green for good and blue for Obi-Wan Kenobi. But then, when the new trilogy of prequels was released between 1999 and 2005, Samuel L. Jackson joined the franchise as Jedi warrior Mace Windu and broke the rules by sporting a purple weapon. So how did it happen?
While last night saw AMC's 'Breaking Bad' star Bryan Cranston netting himself another Critics' Choice award for his iconic portrayal of chemistry teacher-turned meth kingpin Walter White, last week we saw 'The Avengers' star Samuel L. Jackson reciting one of the character's most famous monologues for charity. So, who best to become the danger next? Why, the dulcet tones of Gilbert Gottfried, of course!
Just this morning we were wondering about how best to get Samuel L. Jackson onto Marvel's upcoming 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series, where now it seems the prolific actor has his eye on another TV gig. As part of an ongoing Alzheimer's' charity drive, Jackson recorded himself doing one of Walter White's most famous 'Breaking Bad' monologues, and the results are at least 99% chemically pure.
The first trailer for Marvel's Joss Whedon-directed 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' gave us a clue as to which 'Avengers' stars (beside Coulson) would make the first appearance in ABC's new series. But superheroes aren't the only Marvel characters we'd want to see. Were the man himself, Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, to show up in Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' how would Jackson want it to be done?
'Captain America 2' has begun filming and you won't have to wait until Comic-Con to get your first look at Cap back in action. We've got your first 'Captain America 2' photo below! And what's better? How about confirmation that Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson will be co-starring in 'The Winter Soldier?' Yup, we've got that too!
With most of the core cast assembled (heh), Marvel and Joss Whedon's 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series pilot is prepping to go before cameras next month with a story that's sure to be kept under wraps for months to come. We already knew that the 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series wouldn't feature any of the core 'Avengers' in any regular role, but can the same be said of 'S.H.I.E.L.D.'s director himself, Nick Fury? Hear Samuel L. Jackson dish on his role in the 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series inside!
This Christmas season, two very different movies hit theaters: 'Les Miserables' and 'Django Unchained.' Yet for all their differences, the two are like in one major way: they're both pretty bleak. So stars Anne Hathaway and Samuel L. Jackson got themselves in a spirited debate (and by spirited we mean lots of curse words) in what Funny or Die is calling a "Sad Off" and you haven't lived until you've seen Anne Hathaway call Sam Jackson a motherf---er.
