THE SPIRIT

Respectfully labeled as one of the hardest working actors in Hollywood, SAMUEL L. JACKSON (The Octopus) is an undisputed star as demonstrated in the fact that his films have grossed the most money in box office sales of 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.

Among his many award-winning performances, Jackson made movie history with his portrayal of a crack addict in Spike Lee's JUNGLE FEVER for which he was awarded the first and only Best Supporting Performance Award ever given by the judges at the Cannes Film Festival. 

Jackson was recently seen in the Rod Lurie directed film, RESURRECTING THE CHAMP and in a supporting role in the Weinstein Co. film 1408 based on the Stephen King novel. Jackson also recently starred in the Craig Brewer film BLACK SNAKE MOAN, New Line's thriller SNAKES ON A PLACE, directed by David R. Ellis and Irwin Winkler's MGM war drama HOME OF THE BRAVE. In 2008, Jackson's films included the Doug Liman sci-fi, action film JUMPER and the quirky crime drama CLEANER directed by Renny Harlin. 

Other film credits include COACH CARTER, STAR WARS trilogy I, II and III, IN MY COUNTRY, THE MAN, THE INCREDIBLES, S.W.A.T., FORMULA 51, CHANGING LANES, CAVEMAN'S VALENTINE, RED VIOLIN, SHAFT, UNBREKABLE, 187, EVE'S BAYOU, JACKIE BROWN, THE NEGOTIATOR, A TIME TO KILL, DIE HARD and DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE, THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT and DEEP BLUE SEA.

On the small screen, Jackson serves as Executive Producer for the animated series for Spike TV, "Afro Samurai” which premiered in 2007 and will be returning for a second season. In addition, Jackson partnered with New Line Studios to produce and develop projects in which he has the option of starring.
