That guy got annihilated. I feel sorry for him and anyone who has his family name/lineage the next 100 years.
Hey cut him some slack Sam, maybe he hasn't seen a lot of movies.. oh that's right, he's a motherfucking entertainment news anchor person. What does a motherfucking Entertainment News Guy Look Like?!?!?!
Yeah, at first I felt sorry for the guy, I mean maybe he just doesn't give a shit about celebrities and movies and stuff? But then SLJ pointed out that he was the entertainment news specialist, and my sympathy was gone.
That said, Sam didn't seem all THAT mean. Maybe my standards have been raised on account of Sam's many high-intensity-asshole performances, but I think the news guy got off light.
Plus they HAVE to at least have notes on this shit.. it's like if I ran into Jackie Chan and told him I really loved him in House of Flying Daggers, it'd be awkward. "Sorry sorry sorry Mr. Chan, I wasn't implying anything.. it's just a kung fu movie and I liked it and blah blah blah" but then it'd be over. If I was an entertainment news reporter and said the same thing, I'm not doing my goddamn job. I couldn't pick out Lady Gaga vs. Miley Cirus in a line-up either, but once again, that's not my fucking job.
Boy, that Morgan Freeman sure is uppity these days.
Entertainment news anchor mistakes Samuel L. Jackson for Laurence Fishburn.
I see what you did there in the title.
I was cringing throughout this entire thing
|infinite zest |
Haha.. I'd say I felt sorry for the guy, at least a little, if the commercial was a quick voiceover or just Laurence Fishburn briefly appearing at the end like the Allstate guy, but it was a FULL OUT MATRIX PARODY (actually pretty cool, as far as things that fall into the category of "I'll never be able to afford this" go.) He would've gotten off easier if he'd said "I really liked you in the Blade movies."
sidenote: I really want to see this. I loved both "Elite Squad" movies, and pretty much everything the director has done.
wait. I meant Laurence Olivier. Wait wait wait Antwone Fisher.
Another sidenote: I was in New York on tour with a youth choir I was in and we sang at Carnegie Hall, and afterwords the chaperones took us to the Planet Hollywood.
I was like twelve or thirteen and Pulp Fiction had just come out but I hadn't seen it, and anyway Samuel L. Jackson himself comes through the door and reprises his role in the restaurant scene (except he was standing up, jokingly fucking with the wait staff who were totally in on it, saying "bad mammerjammer" over and over) and then signs and retires his gun from the movie. When I finally saw Pulp Fiction a few years later I was like "ok now this makes sense."
It's like a Family Guy gag come to life.
Yeah, I'm cringing that hard.
It couldve been worse. He could have said Sidney Poitier.

Oh man, I would LOVE to be called Sydney Poitier if I was a black actor. That guy is great in everything, and it would be an honor as a human being to be mistaken for him.

I loved him in the Green Mile.
