TV Host Confuses Samuel L. Jackson With Laurence Fishburne: Watch
Snakes on planes aren’t the only thing that get Samuel L. Jackson riled up … don’t confuse him with Laurence Fishburne either!
During an interview with Los Angeles’ KTLA on Monday morning, anchor Sam Rubin made the cringeworthy mistake of confusing the RoboCop actor with Fishburne, who recently reprised his role as Morpheus from The Matrix in a Kia commercial that aired during the Super Bowl.
“Did you get a lot of reaction from that Super Bowl commercial?” asked Rubin, which left Jackson speechless with confusion … until he figured out what the anchor meant.
“See, you’re as crazy as the people on Twitter,” exclaimed Jackson, wagging his finger at the camera. “I’m not Laurence Fishburne! … You’re the entertainment reporter for this station? There must be a very short line for your job.”
The awkwardness continued for what seemed like forever — but really, it was just two minutes — as Jackson went through the list of other people he is not, including Morgan Freeman.
