There’s no denying Samuel L. Jackson knows how to promote the s**t out of his movies.

At the moment, he’s working on Kong: Skull Island, appearing on late-night shows, radio stations, and doing premiere appearances for the Tom Hiddleston-led monster flick.

One promotional stop included appearing on The Late Late Show with James Corden, reenacting many roles from his incredible career. 

Starting off with a duo of Quentin Tarantino films (Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown), Jackson - along with Corden - reenact scenes from Jurassic Park, Star Wars, Unbreakable, the Avengers, Snakes on a Plane, Kingsmen, Goodfellas, XXX, Deep Blue Sea, and more. Watch below.

 

Meanwhile, Jackson recently caused some controversy online after saying black British actors have been taking roles meant for African-American actors. 

Discussing the American box-office hit Get Out, that stars British actor Daniel Kaluuya in the lead role, Jackson said: “There are a lot of black British actors in these movies. I tend to wonder what would that movie would have been with an American brother who really feels that.

“Daniel grew up in a country where they’ve been interracial dating for a hundred years… What would a brother from America have made of that role? I’m sure the director helped, but some things are universal, but [not everything].”

Jackson’s comments angered Star Wars: The Force Awakens actor John Boyega, who responded on Twitter saying: “Black brits vs African American. A stupid ass conflict we don't have time for.”

Numerous black British actors have been cast in Hollywood films concerning race relations, including David Oyelowo as Martin Luther King in Selma and Chiwetel Ejiofor in the Oscar-winning 12 Years A Slave.
