I love Samuel L. Jackson. I mean, I’d automatically have to support anyone who’s been in both Jurassic Park and Pulp Fiction, but Samuel L. takes it to another level. (Let’s all just acknowledge that this search exists.) But, with more than a hundred movies under his belt — and who knows how many random cameos, like his appearance in the first season of Law and Order — it’d be hard to argue that he isn’t the hardest working man in show business.
He also seems like a pretty cool dude, or at least comes across as such in interviews like this Snakes on a Plane-era chat with the A.V. Club. I hope he doesn’t go down in history as a caricature of himself, because his résumé runs deeper than that. But I do love that he seems to have pretty much embraced his reputation as Hollywood’s go-to foul-mouthed crazy person. He definitely hasn’t done anything to dispel that image on Twitter, where I don’t think he’s ever tweeted without dropping some variation of his near-trademarked usage of all forms of “motherfucker.” So, starting with his first tweet ever, here are some of Jackson’s best works.
