Samuel L. Jackson is one of the most prolific actors working today. His roles in the MCU, Jurassic Park, The Kingsman, Pulp Fiction, Deep Blue Sea and The Incredibles have brought us some of the most iconic moments in movie history. His latest role in Kong: Skull Island is yet another high note in his fantastic career, and he brings his patented gravitas and energy to every scene.
While promoting Kong: Skull Island, #SamuelLJackson made an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, and reminded us all of what an impact he has made on pop culture by acting out some of the finest moments from his long career.
First off, I would like to mention how much I love Samuel L. Jackson's enthusiasm throughout this video. After all these years, Samuel L. Jackson could simply phone it in, but instead he shows up with the energy that he has brought to each one of his roles. From the start of this video, Jackson is game for whatever Corden can throw at him, and it is a delight to watch.
They begin the bit by tackling one Jackson's most defining films, Pulp Fiction. Jackson recites Ezekiel 25:17 ( I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance...) with the same tenacity and volume as in the film. They quickly jump into the infamous "royale with cheese" dialogue, with Corden playing the role of Vincent Vega – all whilst wearing the silliest wigs in history.

That’s right folks: Jackson does a live-action recreation of the “where's my super suit?” scene from the Incredibles. Frozone is back baby, and he's still fighting for the greater good. The Incredibles is an amazing film, and Jackson brought some much-needed weight to the cast.
The Star Wars Prequels
Hold onto your butts, because Mace Windu is back one more time, purple lightsaber and all! James Corden does a terrible Yoda impression, but the skit has better SFX than all three of the prequels. Fortunately, we didn't have to see Mace Windu die again, but he did get hit with the Emperor's tasty Force-lightning.
This video is amazing, and really shows the unbelievable impact that Samuel L. Jackson has made on Hollywood. Just one of these roles would've secured an enviable legacy, but the fact that all of these parts were played by the same incredible actor just goes to prove that Samuel L. Jackson is, without a doubt, an absolute legend. You can catch Samuel L. Jackson in his latest film Kong: Skull Island in theaters now!
