The hardest working man in the movies. That would be Mr. Samuel L. Jackson. With his bad-ass demeanor and cool charisma, Jackson knows how to command the screen. From “Pulp Fiction”; to “Jungle Fever”; to “The Incredibles”; to “Kill Bill: Vol. 2”; to “Coach Carter”; to “Iron Man 2”; to “Star Wars: Episode II”; to recently released “Thor”, Jackson has appeared in nearly 140 motion pictures.
Jackson came up from the stage, starting with his early work at Morehouse College, and later in New York City with plays like August Wilson’s “The Piano Lesson”. (The best training for actors is the stage!) From there he went on to play in high profile films for the likes of directors Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg.
Box office tracking company A.C. Neilson has determined that Jackson’s films grossed $1.7 billion domestically in the 1990s!
Watch this entertaining interview of Mr. Jackson. He says a lot using few words.
Mr. Jackson is a man who knows how to work!
