I always wonder why Samuel Jackson takes on so many movie roles...I mean it can't be the money...is it ego? An unquenchable lust for world dominating fame? A flaming desire to be in "The Guinness Book of World Records" for most acting roles ever by a single human being?
Sam's Jheri Curl in "Pulp Fiction" .
Sam's baldy in one of those Star Wars movies.
Sam's old man grey receding do in "Black Snake Moan".
His "Langston Hughes" in something I never heard of.
His widow's peak dready thing in...hmmm....I don't know this one either. I think it was "The Man".
His "fried, dyed, and laid to the side" in "Eve's Bayou".
The dreads in "Caveman's Valentine".
His "serious" hair in "Changing Lanes".
You get the idea...there are many, many, more, but that would take up pages of this blog's space. Not to mention the 8,000 Kangol caps he has (I think he has 50% stock in the company). We get it Sam, but there are only so many hairstyles a black man can do. Unless you are willing to do a full fledged tranny with Yaki #5, 18 inch, just give it a rest for a while, kay?
Update: How can I forget? Regina and LaJane reminded me of his "young Frederick Douglas" (lol!) in "Unbreakable":
And his long red ponytail (with braided and beaded beard) in "Jackie Brown":
