Samuel L. Jackson Goes Off On News Anchor Who Mistakes Him For Laurence Fishburne

0commentsSamuel L. Jackson Goes Off

Samuel L. Jackson was being interview by a Hollywood entertainment reporter on live television when the anchor made a serious mistake: confusing Samuel L. Jackson with Laurence Fishburne. The anchor asks Jackson about his Super Bowl commercial, which confuses Jackson because he didn't star in any Super Bowl commercials this year. Finally, they both realize what has happened and Jackson goes off: "You're as crazy as the people on Twitter. I'm not Laurence Fishburne! We don't all look alike...You're the entertainment reporter for this station? And you don't know the difference between me and Laurence Fishburne? That must be a very short line for your job outside there." The reporter tries to move on to discuss Jackson's upcoming film, RoboCop, but Jackson doesn't let him off the hook that easily. He continues to mock the reporter, basically giving him a list of all the black guys on television that Samuel L. Jackson is not. Samuel L. Jackson plays Nick Fury in Marvel's The Avengers. Laurence Fishburne reprised his role as Morpheus from The Matrix for a Super Bowl commercial. They are not the same person.
