People We Admire – Samuel L. Jackson
Samuel Leroy Jackson is a BAMF. For example, his middle name is Leroy . Not enough? OK, Jackson has also been an extremely prolific actor and overtook Harrison Ford as the highest-grossing movie star of all time.
He’s played a cocaine addict, a hitman, a sidekick to Bruce Willis, a superhero with ice powers, a ‘super’ villain with brittle bones, a snake hating FBI agent, an eye patch wearing Avenger, a vengeful samurai, a Jedi master, and many more roles. Not all of his movies are hits, but most of his roles are memorable.
He’s also either very lucky in the lines that are written for him or the way he delivers them makes them extremely memorable. Here’s a video to illustrate that fact.
The next movie we will see him in will most likely be Iron Man 2 with him reprising his role as Nick Fury.
