I voted for Deep Blue Sea purely because the Dave Chappelle quote you posted cracks me up everytime I say it out loud.

Not to mention the death scene is pure camp awesome.

Patrick, how can a poll about the most awesome Samuel L. Jackson role not include his seminal role as Jules on Pulp Fiction and yet include his 5 minute cameo on Jurassic Park!? :shock:

At any rate, I personally think that while Samuel L. Jackson is probably best known for playing exuberant bad-ass type characters, he really shows his talent and versatility as an actor in more low-key roles, including in roles like Unbreakable, Black Snake Moan, Fresh, The Red Violin, or Hard 8.

As an aside, I had no idea that Samuel L. Jackson was in Goodfellas. However, I wonder if any of you here on Reelviews was aware that Samuel L. Jackson had a guest role on an episode of the TV series Law & Order, with the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.

I didn't know he was in Law and Order, but i'm not surprised.

He also had a cameo in an early Troma film called "Def By Temptation" and also "Return of Superfly".

He was also in Jurassic Park for a lot more then 5 minutes.

Let's see what I wrote in the first post of this topic about that very question!

Isn't reading fun?

I did read it, and thought it was silly of you to keep Tarantino movies out of your choices. But then again, it's your poll! :)

Vexer, you're probably right that Jackson was in Jurassic Park for more than 5 minutes in terms of duration, but his role in that film was minor and not especially all that memorable.

On another note, I'm not that familiar with too many of the early Troma films, but when I checked "Def by Temptation", there was a cameo from both Jackson and by Bill Nunn, both of whom had prominent roles in Spike Lee's "Do the Right Thing". An interesting coincidence.
