Comic-Con Video: Samuel L. Jackson on 'Afro Samurai'
Thursday evening I sat down with Samuel L. Jackson to talk about the animated series in which he stars (and executive produces): "Afro Samurai." Before dismissing it as a pet project in which Sam indulges his love of manga and samurai culture, know that the line for the "Afro Samurai" panel -- in which Sam talked about the just announced Afro Samurai movie (Lucy Liu's on board) and the new tie-in video game (from the press release: "Slice and dismember opponents as Afro acrobatically leaps from one location to the next...") -- was out the door of the convention center and stretching down to a nearby yacht harbor. These hardcore fans are Sam's people and he was utterly in his element.
Below, Sam talks about the crowd's reaction and his one-of-a-kind "Afro Samurai" t-shirt:
Sam also talked about "Snakes on a Plane" ("Hey, not every movie can make $158 million in its opening weekend.") and shared his picks for must-see classic Japanese Samurai movies:
