Samuel L. Jackson talks about President Trump, racism in America, Hollywood’s casting of British Black actors in ‘American’ roles, “Kong: Skull Island,” and more. See? Waaaay more than just the 2 controversial minutes here or there the gossip sites are gushing about.
(Google that sh!t if you like. We don’t do that here.)
But something else of note: Jackson, in response to Ebro’s lead-in, touches on the historical racist undertones in all the “King Kong” movies (like we did on here). Yeah. Talk more about that mainstream.
“In his new film, director Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished – a radical narration about race in America, using the writer’s original words. He draws upon James Baldwin’s notes on the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. to explore and bring a fresh and radical perspective to the current racial narrative in America.”
“One of the best movies you are likely to see this year.”
– Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

Samuel L. Jackson is gonna catch us up HBO’s “Game of Thrones”… like Samuel L. Jackson is SUPPOSED to. And the end of this clip might flash you back to Dave Chappelle’s impression of Jackson back in the day. This is GOLD!

‘Calling out the violence of the racist police,’ is what Samuel L. Jackson is singing and what Sticky Fingaz, Talib Kweli, Mad Lion, Brother J and KRS-ONE saying with the rhymes in “I Can’t Breathe.” Mad Lion brought the beat. And check out KRS with the shutdown verse. Revolution!
Getting close! “The Hateful Eight” (or “The Hateful 8” if you go by the earlier trailer we posted here) has a Christmas (December 25, 2015) release date for select theaters. The rest of the screens will get cold-bloodied on January 8, 2016. Here’a another trailer for Tarrantino’s soon-to-be box office smash. Samuel L. Jackson can talk some talk, can’t he? Ha!
Tarantino. He does not do many movies. But when he does… they’re among the most interesting works of art in the world! Count on the “The Hateful 8” to keep that rep up. An all-star cast featuring a lot of actors who have a lot of time in on Quentin’s sets. Should make for a power-packed delivery of this old west flavored film.
In “The Hateful 8,” set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Jackson), a Black former Union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all.
Oh… well damn. We’re doing me-Tarzan-you-President movies now?? Looks action-packed though! Seems as though Samuel L. Jackson is taking a ‘Nick Fury’ break and letting this up-and-coming action hero (Onni Tommila) do the heavy lifting in this one. That kid is a bad ass. Watch the trailer above for “Big Game.”

‘F##k You, Samuel Jackson!’ Hahahaaa! This ‘Funny Or Die’ skit is hilarious. Still manages to make a good point. Parents raise your kids, Samuel is just acting in movies you LET them watch. If he’s on the movie’s poster, maybe you shouldn’t let your kids watch. ‘YES, THEY DESERVE TO DIE AND I HOPE…’ you watch this funny clip!
Hahaaaa! This is Samuel L. Jackson being SAMUEL L. JACKSON. “Wake the F**k Up” is a new political ad from the Jewish Council for Education & Research, a liberal PAC (Political Action Committee). Hilarious! But it makes the point! The ad was written by Adam Mansbach, the same author behind the satirical children’s book “Go the F**k to Sleep,” for which Jackson did a similarly styled audiobook recording (see the explicit version of the “children’s story” after the jump).

Everybody who’s opinion I respect who has seen the film tells me it’s the best superhero movie ever…..I’ll be the judge of that when I see it tonight. I’m sure they are right though….If not Samuel L. Jackson will probably curse you the f*xk out for thinking it isn’t. More videos from the rest of the cast below….
