Cool Videos: Don't ever confuse Samuel L. Jackson with Laurence Fishburne

02.10.2014

If you can think of two badder motherf*ckers than Laurence Fishburne and Samuel L. Jackson, I would be surprised. Both are damn good actors who can deliver drama, comedy, and appear in superhero movies. Both men have recognizable voices that make them in demand for not only animated films, but also commercials. Still, if you saw either one of them, I am sure you would know who was who.

Well, apparently the entertainment reporter for KTLA in Los Angeles couldn't tell them apart. Remember that Super Bowl commercial with Laurence Fishburne reprising his MATRIX role of Morpheus? During a recent interview, the KTLA entertainment reports decided to ask Samuel L. Jackson if the commercial had played well with his fans. Jackson went on to eviscerate the reporter. Each time the guy apologized and tried to redirect, Jackson just kept on him.

Now, I doubt the reporter was trying to be racist, but Jackson certainly had fun pretending to be bothered by it. The poor guy never stood a chance against Nick Fury.

It happens.

I asked a student in Taiwan who his favorite actor was and he said "Eddie Murphy. I liked him in Rush Hour."

I am glad Sammuel L Jackson gave the reporter crap, but it was dragged on too much. The Reporter was easily shook up and never regained himself....jeez

That's some repugnant shit

That reporter died a slow and painful death, Jackson dragged it out a little too long but still the man deserved it; it's the guys job! You don't even have to be a movie buff to know the difference between Jules Winfield and Morpheus; last time I checked those were two of the most iconic films made in the past 20 years, do your research next time.

Calling a reporter out on a mistake? - Sure, go ahead. He should know better.
Making a joke about it? - Yeah, could be fun.
Having a go on that one mistake for most of a four minute interview? - Sorry, you missed the line where funny ends and acting dickish starts.

I remember in an interview Sam said before Pulp Fiction people would mistake him for Laurence Fishburne.
I remember in another interview Laurence said after Pulp Fiction people would mistake him for Samuel L Jackson.

You would have thought after The Matrix this wouldn't happen any more.

Heck I remember someone who believed that Wesley Snipes was in Double Team with Van Damme.

The News sucks...

I don't feel bad for Rubin. It's another reason why I've stopped watching the news. Rubin was being lazy and if you have seen the KTLA morning news lately they are very lazy and it's stupid. Rubin has been around for a VERY VERY long time he should have known better, heck the guy has been around since I was in middle school. I can go on, but I'll leave it there.

Slight irony in that Tarantino had Fishburne in mind (and asked him first) when he wrote Jules Winnfield in Pulp Fiction....

So, this guys didn't see The Matrix? That was pretty funny. But how do you confuse Fishburne and Jackson? The two are so different in personality. And I thought Morphius was an iconic character. Guess I was wrong.

At 02:30, Jackson says regarding the original, "Peter Verhoeven did a great job". Uh, oh. Peter Verhoeven is a white basketball player who Jackson confused for a white film director.

Sam isn't an entertainment reporter though, that's not his job to know those things.

Yeah but it is his job to know about some info from an extremely iconic movie he is remaking. I love SLJ but he comes off a bit of a racist at times. Sometimes in the "I am a struggling black man" BS that Spike Lee throws around at times.

Sam Jackson

Was a bit of a prick in this vid. Ok yes. He made a mistake and you called him out on it. Then he started to drag it out and make it a huge racial thing. Come on man. A mistake is a mistake.

As Jackson pointed out, the reporter is responsible for the entertainment section. What does that say about his ability to do his job?

Jackson's always been like that. He's outspoken. It seems like it genuinely affected him, especially since this interview was known about, probably for a good while. Can't really blame Jackson, honestly, and it was pretty amusing.

Awesome

I like the awkward nervous laughter. Even if you can't tell the two apart, isn't it your job to do some research on the guy you're interviewing?
