Another Friday the 13th is upon us and as luck has it this one falls within the month of February which is also Black History Month. So in honor of the stars aligning these two auspicious occasions together I decided to put together a super-cut of all of the fine young (and some not so young) black actors to have the honor of a gruesome onscreen death at the hands of Pamela Voorhees’ overly exhuberant bouncing baby boy.
Their names aren’t similar either. So exactly how and why KTLA’s Sam Rubin (the supposed entertainment anchor for the show) got the two actors mixed up is a mystery to me. But on the bright side it did produce this wonderfully uncomfortable video clip of Mr. Jackson refusing to let Rubin’s mistake go and making his interview one of the most awkward in recent memory. Check it out after the jump.
