IRON MAN 2

SAMUEL L. JACKSON (Nick Fury) is respectfully labeled as one of the hardest working actors in Hollywood, an undisputed star as demonstrated by the fact that his films have grossed more 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 hit man 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” when he was awarded the first and only Best Supporting Performance Award ever given by the judges at the Cannes Film Festival.

Jackson was most recently seen in Frank Miller's "The Spirit,” and lent his voice to the character of Zog in "Astro Boy.” Jackson also had starring roles in Doug Liman's sci-fi thriller "Jumper” and the quirky drama "Cleaner,” directed by Renny Harlin. He was also seen in the Rod Lurie-directed film "Resurrecting the Champ” and the horror film "1408,” based on the Stephen King novel. His other recent films include the Craig Brewer film "Black Snake Moan,” Irwin Winkler's MGM war drama "Home of the Brave,” "Lakeview Terrace” and the comedy "Soul Men” with Bernie Mac.

Other film credits include "Snakes on a Plane,” "Coach Carter,” the "Star Wars” trilogy, "In My Country,” "The Man,” "The Incredibles,” "S.W.A.T.,” "Formula 51,” "Changing Lanes,” "Caveman's Valentine,” "Red Violin,” "Shaft,” "Unbreakable,” "Eve's Bayou,” "Jackie Brown,” "The Negotiator,” "A Time To Kill,” "Die Hard with a Vengeance,” "The Long Kiss Goodnight” and "Deep Blue Sea.”

On the small screen, Jackson serves as executive producer on an animated series for Spike TV, "Afro Samurai,” which premiered in 2007 and recently returned for a second season. He also just secured a first-look television deal with CBS to produce and develop upcoming projects. In addition, Jackson has a production deal with New Line Cinema to produce and develop projects in which he has the option of starring.
