Samuel L. Jackson Lambasts News Anchor Who Mistakes Him for Laurence Fishburne

February 10, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Samuel L. Jackson was not happy when a news anchor mistook him for Laurence Fishburne.

During an interview about the upcoming RoboCop reboot, Sam Rubin with KTLA asked Jackson about his Super Bowl commercial.

The problem was, Jackson didn’t do a Super Bowl commercial this year.

“What Super Bowl commercial?” Jackson asked.

“You’re as crazy as the people on Twitter, I’m not Laurence Fishburne. We all look alike? We’re all black and famous.”

Rubin apologizes profusely many times but Jackson would not let him move on to asking about RoboCop for another two minutes.

“You don’t know the difference between me and Laurence Fishburne?” Jackson asked, incredulous. 

“Really? Really? I’m the other guy. There’s more than one black guy doing a commercial.”
