Jackson joins Judd

Samuel L. Jackson deserves more starring roles. He's proved time and time again he's one of the most powerful actors in Hollywood but he tends to play the second banana all-too-often. He's got XXX coming this August where he has to sit back and watch Vin Diesel be the bad-ass. Sam the Man is the original bad-ass! Oh well. We've got another sidekick role for Jackson, this time as he stars alongside Ashley Judd in the thriller BLACKOUT. The film follows a female cop investigating a series of murders, only to find that as her ex-boyfriends are turning up dead, all the evidence points to her. Jackson will play a fellow cop who's a friend and mentor to Judd's character. If I can go out on a limb here and make a guess, I'm gonna say Jackson's character is the killer and the one framing Ashley Judd. Just a guess and I have NO IDEA whether this is true or not, but I've seen enough suspense-thrillers in my life to be able to guess at a few twists and turns. Just a hunch here but let's see if I'm right. Production begins under the direction of Philip Kaufman (QUILLS) in two weeks.

Sam's co-star, the beautiful Ashley Judd
