Samuel L. Jackson totally schooled an entertainment reporter who accidentally confused him for Laurence Fishburne.
Jackson was promoting “Robocop” when a Los Angeles reporter asked him about the reaction to his Super Bowl commercial, which would be a perfectly fine question if Jackson did a Super Bowl commercial and was named Laurence Fishburne.
“You’re the entertainment reporter for this station? And you don’t know the difference between me and Laurence Fishburne? It must be a very short line for your job.”
“I’m the other guy,” Jackson continued. “There’s more than one black guy in a commercial.”
An earlier version of this story mistakenly identified the reporter in question as being from Atlanta.
