Samuel L. Jackson

Samuel Leroy Jackson (born December 21, 1948) is an American actor. He has starred in many Hollywood movies. The "L" in his name is fictional. When he registered as an actor, "Sam Jackson" and "Samuel Jackson" were already taken. So, he adopted the middle initial of "L". Also, his performance in Jungle Fever was so acclaimed, the 1991 Cannes Film Festival created a Supporting Actor award just for him. Along with that award, he has won many others including a Silver Berlin Bear, A BAFTA Film Award, and two Indipendant Spirit Awards.
