KTLA Reporter Confuses Samuel L. Jackson For Another Hollywood ActorMonday, February 10, 2014
Talk about a pie in the face. I work at a local television station and sometimes it's hard for anchors and reporters to get names right. For KTLA Hollywood reporter Sam Rubin that moment came as he was interviewing Mega Superstar Actor Samuel L. Jackson.
On Monday, Rubin was doing a satellite interview with Jackson, for the new "Rob Cop" movie. He started the interview by asking him about the Super Bowl commercial, "Working for Marvel the Super Bowl commercial, did you get a lot of reaction from the Super Bowl commercial..." and by now we all know that actor Laurence Fishburne was the face of the KIA ad, for the Super Bowl.
Jackson was not happy, "What Super Bowl commercial... See, you're as crazy as the people on Twitter, I'm not Laurence Fishburne... We don't all look alike. We may be all black and famous..." He quickly gives the reporter a list of black actors and breakdowns of their commercials,"I'm the other guy, what's in your wallet..." First of all they look nothing alike, second their style of acting are totally different and this dude is an entertainment reporter.
