Are you kidding me? Samuel L. Jackson isn't in enough movies. I wish he'd show up at the end of the new eclipse movie yelling "I'm tired of these motherfuckin vampires in these shitty motherfuckin movies" and proceeded to kill them all so there's no more sequals.

AK-47, the very best there is. When you absolutely, positively have to kill every single motherfucking vampire in the room - accept no substitute.

Actually, that should probably read:

Motherfuckin' sharp-ass wooden stake, the very best there is. When you absolutely, positively have to kill every single motherfucking vampire in the room - accept no substitute.

I love Samuel L Jackson. But I think the thread does have merit when you consider his appearance in the newer Star Wars movies. He just did not fit that part at all, IMO.

Samuel L Jackson can show up in any movie he wants too. He's that bad of a motherfucker.

Yeah I can't say I agree with the OP. If Samuel L. Jackson were in every movie ever created, ever, I'd have interest to watch every movie ever created.. Ever.

Bitching about Samuel L. Jacksons fine body of work as an actor is a bannable offense IMO.

He's the top grossing actor of all time. That helps him get those cameo roles, just so they can say he's in it to help sell tickets. Other than that, I think it comes down to this...

Guy 1: We need an older black guy who can play an experienced ______, come off as wise and can deliver a gripping performance.

Guy 2: Samuel L. Jackson?

Guy 1: No, he's played out.

Guy 2: Morgan Freeman?

Guy 1: No, we can do better than that, come on now...think!

Guy 2: Samuel L. Jackson?

Guy 1: BINGO! Guy 2, You're a genius!
