In this week’s ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service,’ Samuel L. Jackson plays Richmond Valentine, a power-mad tech billionaire with dreams of world domination. Richmond Valentine’s a pretty cool character name, but according to our highly scientific and totally objective calculations, it’s just the 28th-coolest name of Jackson’s long career. Working from his IMDb page (and eliminating any character where he didn’t get at least a first name), we created this list, the definitive (again, totally mathematical and absolutely beyond reproach) ranking of all his character names. You’re welcome.

The cast of Tim Burton’s next film just got a bit more interesting: ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’ (now that’s a title) has cast someone who knows a little something about playing the bad guy as the villain—Samuel L. Jackson, of course. Jackson has just signed on to co-star in Burton’s latest, which should make for a rather, well, peculiar union.

IMDB.com lists 159 acting credits for Samuel L. Jackson over a career that’s spanned more than 40 years. Jackson’s as versatile as he is prolific; though he’s likely best known for his action films and his flair for language (and especially profanity, his skills as a chameleon might be underrated. He’s made 160 films and television shows and looked like 160 wildly different people. Few actors seem to delight in the specifics of costuming, hair, and makeup as much as he does, and few have exhibited a wider array of hairstyles, facial hair, and wardrobes. From the earliest days of his career all the way up to next week’s ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service,’ nobody’s worn silver hair, a kilt, or exaggerated octopus-style eye makeup quite like Samuel L. Jackson. In honor of his great achievements in outlandish onscreen fashion, please enjoy this gallery spotlighting just a few of his many sartorial highlights.

We know that Tony Stark's Iron Man suit is powerful—when fully charged, it can lift over 100 tons—but, we probably didn't realize just how heavy it is. The original suit in the first ‘Iron Man’ movie weighed over 90 lbs. That's big, hot costume to have to act in all day. And, to think, it was almost not even Robert Downey, Jr. underneath all that armor. Find out which other actors made the cut, and a lot more, in the latest invincible installment of You Think You Know Movies!

We’ve been seeing previews for ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ for quite some time now, but they’ve only really nailed it with the latest trailer. Thanks to the new red-band clip (which you probably shouldn’t watch at work), the latest film from director Matthew Vaughn finally looks like something we can get excited about ... mainly because, for the first time, we can see that this film appears to be completely and totally insane.

‘Big Game’ Trailer: Samuel L. Jackson and a Young Boy Battle Terrorists in a Movie That Really Exists

The ‘Big Game’ trailer sells a concept that rides a fine line between totally preposterous and incredible. What if Air Force One was shot down and the President’s escape pod landed in the isolated woods of Finland? What is the President, now pursued by terrorists, only had one ally? What if that one ally was a pre-teen boy armed with a bow? What if the President was played by Samuel L. Jackson? Yeah, ‘Big Game’ is a real movie and we still can’t decide if it’s too ludicrous or just ludicrous enough.

The new trailer for ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ seemingly has everything you’d want out of a movie. There’s big, crazy action, Samuel L. Jackson acting like a lunatic, adorable puppies, a supporting cast filled with British actors that you love, and, most importantly, the simple presence of Colin Firth. The fact that Firth is playing a gentleman spy in the old school British ‘Avengers’/Sean Connery/James Bond mold is just a bonus.
