No one lets loose with the profanity quite like Samuel L. Jackson and one of his favorite (and best delivered) expletives is “motherfucker”. So this supercut of every utterance Mr. Jackson has had of the word in his movie career is a thing of foul mouthed beauty.
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.
The main villain in the upcoming third Iron Man movie is The Mandarin. Now I am sure that with a name like The Mandarin it automatically makes you think of casting Sir Ben Kingsley in the role, right? Who else would you even think of casting aside from Kingsley?

Well its that time of year again where anyone with competent motor skills and a high speed Internet connection decides to share their Oscar predictions with the rest of the world. And like the lovable lemming that I am, I am doing it too. I only predict the categories I care about and consider the “Biggies” which comes to 6 categories. Last year I went 4 for 6 (damn you Meryl Streep and guy from The Artist!!!) so I am looking to increase my average this go round.

Starring: Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington and Samuel L. Jackson
Studio: The Weinstein Co.
Synopsis: Set in the South two years before the Civil War, Django Unchained stars Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago. Django and Schultz’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of “Candyland,” an infamous plantation. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Samuel L. Jackson), Candie’s trusted house slave.
