The guy makes like what 6 movies a year, take a vacation Sam sheesh.


Best, meaning what role you thought he played the best.

Favorite, b/c his best may not be your favorite.

He was great as Jules in Pulp Fiction. But I absolutely loved him as Ordell Robbie in "Jackie Brown".

Some of the greatest quotes ever ...

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119396/quotes

Ordell Robbie: My ass may be dumb, but I ain't no dumbass.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ordell Robbie: AK-47. The very best there is. When you absolutely, positively got to kill every motherfucker in the room, accept no substitutes.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ordell Robbie: Look, I hate to be the kinda nigga does a nigga a favor, then, BAM!, hits a nigga up for a favor in return. But I'm afraid I gotta be that kinda nigga.

Beaumont: What?

Ordell Robbie: I need a favor.

I 'm leaning toward Jules Winfield for both my answers as well (Pulp is my favorite movie), but I want to assume he played something else very well also.

What was the movie he played the teacher in, when he played Russian roulette with a high school student of his. I liked Sam in that.

A Time to Kill, Negotiator were good IMO.

Stacks Edwards...ROTFLMAO.

Being a former Jarhead, I loved his role in "Rules of Engagement". My favorite was when he gave the order to fire, the way those Marines went to it, brought a tear to my eye.

Jules: Now reach in there and give me my wallet back

Jules: It's the one that syas bad mother fucker on it!

Rules of Engagement was a very underrated flick.

Anyone seen "Black Snake Moan"? Like three people told me I had to see it, been sitting on top my DVD player from Netflix for like three weeks. Sam Jackson and Christina Ricci.

I have that Bad Mother Fucker wallet in my pocket as we speak.

You should see the looks I get when I pull it out in a bar.....or at the grocery store.

It even comes with a California Jules Winfield driver's license..

I got one, I don't have the balls to use it but I got one. I am a huge pulp fiction fan, I have multiple posters and stills from it hanging around my room, so it should be no surprise that my fav. Samuel L. Jackson roles is Jules. After that, though, is Snakes on a Plane. No doubt.

I've had it with all these motherfuckin' snakes on this motherfuckin' plane!

Mitch Hennessey (A Long Kiss Goodnight) is my favorite SLJ role. He was very good as Carl Lee Hailey in "A Time to Kill" also.

The first time I paid attention to his acting was in the film "White Sands" with the pre-flipped out Mickey Rouke and William Dafoe. Not a bad flcik, and SLJ steals the show as a crooked FBI agent.
