Samuel L. Jackson Just Works

My brothers and once joked that Samuel L. was the hardest working man in show business. But it’s true.

If you feel like Samuel L. Jackons is in every movie that’s because he is.  Samuel L. Jackson makes 4 movies a year, a steady average since 1994.

When Jackson heard about a movie called “Snakes on a Plane,” he called the director, David R. Ellis, and said, “You doing a movie about snakes on a plane?” Yeah. “A plane full of poisonous snakes?” Yeah. “I’m down.”

Samuel L. can’t deny a movie, nor can Hollywood deny him. He’s always available and Hollywood and his fans love him for that.  I’ve never heard anyone regret seeing him in a movie.  This may be because he plays mostly side characters to protagonists as in Diehard and Unbreakable.  Still, Samuel L. Jackson must be the best supporting actor ever.

Hard work, dedication, and class.  You know what you’re going to get every time with Samuel L. Jackson.  How can you not like this guy?
