SNAKES ON A PLANE

SAMUEL L. JACKSON (Neville Flynn), respectfully labeled as one of the hardest working actors in Hollywood, is an undisputed star as demonstrated in the fact that his films have grossed the most money in box office sales than any other actor in the history of filmmaking.

Jackson made an indelible mark on American cinema with his portrayal of ‘Jules', the philosophizing hitman, in Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction.” In addition to unanimous critical acclaim for his performance, he received Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations as Best Supporting Actor as well as a Best Supporting Actor award from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.

Jackson most recently wrapped production on the film "Home of the Brave” for director Irwin Winkler. The film tells the story of three soldiers returning home after a lengthy tour of duty in Iraq and their struggles to cope with life after war. Jessica Biel and 50 Cent co-star. 

Jackson also completed filming on "Black Snake Moan”, filmed entirely on location in Memphis, for director Craig Brewer ("Hustle and Flow”). Jackson portrays ‘Lazarus' a bluesman who attempts to "cure” a young female, white nymphomaniac played by Christina Ricci. Paramount Classics is distributing the film in February 2007. 

Upcoming, Jackson stars in the films "Resurrecting the Champ” and "1408” and he is scheduled to begin production in August on the film "Jumper,” a sci-fi film directed by Doug Liman. 

Jackson most recently starred opposite Julianne Moore in Revolution Studio's "Freedomland” directed by Joe Roth and based on the best selling novel of the same name. Jackson also starred as ‘Agent Derrick Vann' in New Line's "The Man” opposite Eugene Levy. 

In early 2005, Jackson topped the opening weekend box office charts with the success of the Paramount Pictures film, "Coach Carter.” Jackson portrayed real-life high school basketball coach, ‘Ken Carter', a dedicated role model and advocate for students succeeding in the classroom as well as on the basketball court. "Coach Carter” was screened as the opening night film of the prestigious Palm Springs Film Festival. Jackson received the Career Achievement Award for Acting from the Festival. 

Jackson also starred in the independent film for Sony Classics, "In My Country,” based on the best-selling novel, "Country of My Skull,” by South African writer, Antije Krog. Jackson portrayed an American reporter who must cope with the aftermath of apartheid as his newspaper assigns him to cover the Truth and Reconciliation Trials, established by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, that expose the worst cases of torture, abuse and violence. "In My Country” was directed by John Boorman and produced by Bob Chartoff and Mike Medavoy. Juliette Binoche co-stars. 

In 2005, Jackson reprised his role as ‘Agent Augustus Gibbons' in "XXX: State of the Union” and as ‘Mace Windu' in "Star Wars: Episode III – The Revenge of the Sith.” To no one's surprise, "Star Wars: Episode III – The Revenge of the Sith” made an incredible impact at the box office breaking numerous opening day records.

In 2004, Jackson "appeared” as the character ‘Frozone' in the Disney animated action-adventure film, "The Incredibles” which was released to record box office results this past November. The film was directed and written by Brad Bird and earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Picture as well as two Academy Award nominations.

In 2003, Jackson starred in "S.W.A.T” for Columbia TriStar. Directed by Clark Johnson, "S.W.A.T.” is about an arrested drug kingpin who is transported by a Los Angeles Police Department S.W.A.T. team and led out of the city and into Federal custody. Plans go awry when the kingpin offers $100 million to anyone who can free him. Colin Farrell and Michelle Rodriguez are also in the film.
