Samuel L. Jackson appeared on Los Angeles' morning show KTLA to discuss his upcoming "Robocop" film. Once reporter Sam Rubin confused Jackson with Laurence Fishburne, things got weird. Jackson, who was on live TV, came for Rubin's neck ASAP. "We don't all look alike," the "Django Unchained" actor said.
The unexpected clap back was truly classic. He then went on to make his point clear by saying, “I’ve actually never done a McDonald’s or Kentucky Fried Chicken commercial. I know that’s surprising.” Shortly after however, Rubin apologized for the major mix-up.
Sam Rubin's full apology:
“We start right now with the beauty and the occasional pain of live television. First and foremost, I do know who Samuel L. Jackson is. I’ve interviewed him several times over the years, but never quite like the conversation we just had."
“I indicated to Samuel that I’d seen him during the Super Bowl, and he thought that I had confused him with the commercial Laurence Fishburne had done for a car company. Of course a “Captain America” ad had also run during the Super Bowl, but I immediately felt so dumb, I didn’t bring that up — and he gave me the shellacking that was well deserved."
“I pride myself on the fact — that unlike a lot of people who do this kind of work — more often than not, I really do know what I’m talking about. But I didn’t 30 minutes ago, and I’m really embarrassed about it, and I very much apologize to Samuel L. Jackson and anyone else who was offended for what was a very amateur mistake.”
