Samuel L. Jackson

*Samuel L. Jackson appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” this week and dished about filming “The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey,” a new Apple original series based on the Walter Mosley novel of the same name. He also talked about his own extensive film resume and listed which are his top 5 favs. 

Per Complex, when asked if he ever watches any of his own movies, Jackson replied, “Uh… yeah!” When Colbert noted that many actors don’t like to watch themselves in a film/TV show, Jackson added, “Well some actors lie to you about that, they watch their movies. You know, c’mon. It’s a watch me business!” 

He continued, “If I’m channel surfing, and I haven’t found anything that I wanna watch or I’m not specifically looking for something… I pass something I’m in I’ll watch it,” he said. Colbert then asked the Hollywood veteran which of his movies are his favorite. 

“Long Kiss Good Night, A Time to Kill, Jackie Brown, Red Violin, and One Eight Seven,” he replied. Watch Jackson tell it in the clip below.
