Samuel L. Jackson

WARNING:
This is the MOST PAINFUL interview we've ever watched -- an L.A. news anchor just mistook Samuel L. Jackson for Laurence Fishburne ... on live TV ... and Sam Jackson completely lost it.

Jackson was sitting for an interview about his new movie "RoboCop" this morning on KTLA -- and for some reason, Entertainment anchor Sam Rubin decided to ask Sam Jackson about his new Super Bowl commercial.

But there's a HUGE problem -- because Sam Jackson did NOT do a Super Bowl commercial this year. Laurence Fishburne did. And that's when Sam Jackson GOES OFF on Rubin.

Rubin scrambles like 90s cable porn ... and desperately tried to apologize ... but Jackson will NOT let him off the hook. It's amazing.



SAM RUBIN

ATTACKS TMZ OVER SAM JACKSON STORY

… TMZ HITS BACK!!!

Sam Rubin is not having a good day ... and it just got worse.

Hours after the KTLA reporter got his ass REAMED by Samuel L. Jackson for mistaking him for Laurence Fishburne during a live interview, he tried to take TMZ to task for the way we covered the story.

Problems is, TMZ doesn't like being taken to task ... especially when we're right.

That's when Evan stepped in and engaged Rubin in an enlightening civil discussion about their respectful disagreements ... just kidding ... THEY WENT OFF ON EACH OTHER!!!!!

It was all out war on "TMZ Live" .... ya gotta check out the clip!!!!!

Laurence has the smooth silky voice. Don't confuse Samuel L Jackson for smooth silk.

No one is going to comment on the poor quality of this video? Recording a TV is so amateur.

I don't care what was said, how it got said or who said it. Point is this: An entertainment anchor didn't know who he was talking to. Forgetting that this is Samuel L Jackson easily one of the most recognizable actors in America (Cuz he's in f***ing everything), this was a huge FAIL on Rubin's part. Do your research before an interview. That's basic journalism. And that's laying this whole thing out black and white without mentioning Black and White.

Carelessness on Rubin's part since he presumably wrote the copy rolling on the teleprompter and should have known better. On the other hand, Jackson's Capital One commercial is everywhere - was it run during the Super Bowl?

I think SJ razzing back at SR made the interview so much more entertaining...

I agree with Mr Jackson. That reporter is supposed to be an entertainment anchor? Worst Monday ever for that guy.

Sam Rubin got caught in the middle of a anti-semetic era Mel Gibson rant and Mel said to Rubin "do you have a dog in this fight?" Anyway, racist stuff what goes around comes around sometimes you are the victim sometimes you are the perp.
