Oh Hell No! Reporter Mistakes Samuel L. Jackson For Laurence Fishburne

Oh Hell No! Reporter Mistakes Samuel L. Jackson For Laurence Fishburne

A KLTA reporter gets an earful from Samuel L. Jackson ("Captain America: The Winter Soldier") when he mistakens the actor for fellow thespian, Laurence Fisburne ("The Matrix"). Come check it out.

Watch as KTLA entertainment reporter Sam Rubin, flubs an interview with Samuel L. Jackson ("Pulp Fiction") by confusing him with Laurence Fishburne ("Hannibal"). The video below begins with the reporter asking Jackson about his Super Bowl commercial. Jackson, who did appear in the Captain America: The Winter Soldier television spot senses that the reporter isn't referring to that, but actually Laurence Fishburne's Super Bowl television spot for the car company, Kia. Instead of promoting RoboCop, as he was supposed to, Jackson goes off on quite the rant. After the interview was over, Sam Rubin issued a heartfelt apology, which you can also see below.

“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will pick-up where “Marvel’s The Avengers” left off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C.

Based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1941, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” features an outstanding supporting cast that includes Sebastian Stan (“Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Black Swan”) as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie (“The Hurt Locker,” “Million Dollar Baby”) as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Cobie Smulders (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” “How I Met Your Mother”) as Agent Maria Hill, Frank Grillo (“Zero Dark Thirty”) as Brock Rumlow and Georges St-Pierre (“Death Warrior”) as Georges Batroc. Rounding out the talented cast are Hayley Atwell (“Captain America: The First Avenger”) as Peggy Carter, Toby Jones (“Captain America: The First Avenger,” “The Hunger Games”) as Arnim Zola, Emily VanCamp (“The Ring 2,” “Revenge”) as Agent 13 and Maximiliano Hernández (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Thor”) as Agent Jasper Sitwell.

Do you ever just get so embarrassed for somebody on tv, you can't even watch, damn, that was uncomfortable...

lol, how the hell did he mix those 2 up
kevberg - 2/10/2014, 11:35 AM
I dunno, maybe he never saw any of the guys movies maybe.

Maybe he just doesnt give a ratass ass about Hollywoood.

Maybe when someone makes a mistake, we shouldn't assume or assign some malicious intent. Some of the time a mistake is just a mistake.
Pasto - 2/10/2014, 11:36 AM

Anytime a TV show I watch has the characters sing.
kevberg - 2/10/2014, 11:36 AM
Although he really should have done his homework.

Some users on here bitch when not every little thing has a picture of a superhero in the article.


The actor plays Nick Fury, head of S.H.I.E.L.D. Stop bitching.
Pasto - 2/10/2014, 11:42 AM

And on top of that he is being interviews about his super bowl spot. The problem is, the dude though he was someone else. God, ya'll will bitch just to bitch.

For the white people who don't know Perry White starred in School Daze with a Nick Fury cameo so Sammy ain't Larry and vice versa
