Film + Television | Reporter Confuses Samuel L. Jackson With Laurence Fishburne


artfilmtv_logo

If you ever thought that Samuel L. Jackson was the average 65 year old, his latest interview will show you that he’s well known for a reason. Samuel L. Jackson is featured in the new movie, Robocop, and recently did an interview with KTLA promoting the film. The interview took an unexpected turn when entertainment reporter, Sam Rubin, mistook Samuel for Lawrence Fishburne, a fellow black actor.

Rubin asked Samuel Jackson about a recent Super Bowl commercial, which would have been well received if Samuel Jackson was present, it actually starred Lawrence Fishburne. Samuel took over the interview and decided to vent about the matter.

“You know what? You’re as crazy as the people on Twitter. I’M NOT LAURENCE FISHBURNE. WE DON’T ALL LOOK ALIKE. We may all be black and famous, but we don’t all look alike. You’re the entertainment reporter for this station? And you don’t know the difference between me and Laurence Fishburne?!? That must be a very short line for your job.“

“Oh hell no. Really? REALLY? I’m the other guy. … There’s more than one black guy doing commercials. I’m the ‘what’s in your wallet’ black guy, he’s the ‘car’ black guy. Morgan Freeman is the other credit card black guy. You only hear his voice though so you probably won’t confuse him with Laurence Fishburne.”

The reporter apologized several times for the confusion during the interview, and eventually was able to get back to speaking about ‘Robocop’. All I have to say is, everyone please go support ‘Robocop’ unless you want to face Samuel’s wrath!

  1. How embarrassing for the reporter. Really sad that he didn’t do his research beforehand. Shows a serious level of carelessness and a lack of preparation, not to mention the disrespect shown to an actor of Samuel L. Jackson’s calibre. An utterly reprehensible episode :(.

  2. Well said goanflavour! This isn’t the first time an actor of color has experienced this. Funny though, I cannot recall an incident where a white actor was mistaken for another in a similar setting. Am I mistaken about this?
