Samuel L. Jackson
Samuel L. Jackson is one of the most well-known actors and film producers in Hollywood. He achieved prominence and critical acclaim in the early 1990s with the film Jungle Fever in 1991. He later gained more attention after the release of Patriot Games, Amos & Andrew, True Romance, and Jurassic Park. His collaborations with director Quentin Tarantino in the films Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Django Unchained, and The Hateful Eight have made him a household name. Jackson has appeared in over 100 films to date, including the Star Wars prequel trilogy as well as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But while it is hard to imagine Hollywood without Samuel L. Jackson, he’d only landed small parts before landing the award-winning role in Spike Lee’s film Jungle Fever. Jackson was at the ripe age of 43 when he became famous and successful.
