    Samuel L. Jackson Avoids Being Mistaken For Laurence Fishburne Again In The Most Perfect Way

    Good point, well made.

    Remember that awkward moment when an interviewer confused Samuel L. Jackson with Laurence Fishburne last month, leading him to completely eviscerate the news anchor live on air?


    During the interview, anchor Sam Rubin rattled off Samuel's recent list of professional accomplishments, and included a Super Bowl commercial. But Jackson didn’t actually appear in a Super Bowl commercial… Laurence Fishburne did.

    “I’m not Laurence Fishburne,” Jackson exclaimed after a painfully long silence. “We don’t all look alike! We may be black and famous, but we don’t all look alike!”

    Well, Samuel's ensuring it doesn't happen again.

    He poked fun at the incident during a promotional day of interviews in London on Friday by wearing an "I'm not Laurence Fishburne" T-shirt.
