Samuel L. Jackson is considered one of the most recognizable actors of his generation, having appeared in numerous films throughout his career. But not all of his films are created equal.
From the extraordinary character of Nick Fury in the MCU to the questionable purple lightsaber-toting Mace Windu in Star Wars, here are some of Jackson’s best and worst films.
Best: Pulp Fiction
Samuel L. Jackson’s rage-fueled audition for the role of Jules Winnfield in the black comedy crime film Pulp Fiction. Written for Lawrence Fishbourne, Jackson’s name wasn’t even on director Quentin Tarantino’s mind.
Upon its release, the film is arguably known as one of Jackson’s greatest works, one that earned him an Academy Award nomination or Best Supporting Actor.
