Cool Videos: Samuel L. Jackson performs slam poetry about Boy Meets World

Apr. 2, 2014by: Alex Maidy

Samuel L. Jackson can do anything, literally. The man is a tireless worker who has done every conceivable role from comedy to drama to commercials. Whether it be an indie, a blockbuster, or just a web video, Samuel L. Jackson gives it is all. His memorable voice has also enhanced everything it has graced and he will forever be a fan favorite because of it. When he became Nick Fury for Marvel, he added a level of cool to a character that was already being modeled on his physical appearance.

So, why not have some fun and do something completely unexpected? Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the immortal Samual L. Jackson performing a slam poem about BOY MEETS WORLD on The Tonight Show. You can't tell from this video whether Jackson has ever seen an episode of the ABC sitcom starring Ben Savage but he certainly sells it. Between Jackson doing these or Gary Oldman giving dramatic readings of R. Kelly songs, late night television has certainly given us a nice array of viral clips starring our favorite actors.

Samuel L. Jackson can be seen in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER beginning this Friday.

"TOPANGA!!!!!!".

Am I the only one

Who thinks that Sam Jackson is overrated? Don't get me wrong, he's a decent actor with some memorable roles. But he receives some of the highest praise, often times on this site such as in the article above, and I'm just not sure that he deserves it. The guy's role 80% are some type of leading role where he is yelling most of the time. And speaking down (and very judgementally) to whomever the other character in the scene is. Anyone care to chime in? Before you bring them up, yes I am aware

I feel that Sammy L has been pigeon-holed from time to time as the "loud black guy," but the truth is, he is a very charismatic, intense, bright actor, and he's got this crazy spark about him that I find magnetic. He's always the bright spot in everything he does.

Oh well, just wanting to get others thoughts on it. I didn't say that I don't like the guy, cause I do. Ready and willing to take movie suggestions for Sam Jackson's best roles to watch besides Tarantino, Star Wars, and Marvel.

Samuel L. Jackson has been in some incredibly memorable films and he's been memorable in many of those films. That being said, 90% of the time he is just playing Samuel L. Jackson, and I think that might be why you feel he is overrated. Bruce Willis does the same thing: sometimes it's easy to just show up on set without having to do much preparation and just play yourself, essentially, while earning a huge payday. Having said that, Samuel L. Jackson is definitely capable of amazing work. I
