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!!!!!

I am pretty sure that the Captain America trailer played during the super bowl and there was moment where Fury was shown.
Get off ur high horse Jackson. No one would mistake you for anyone else, it was just a brain fart. I guess you are so far detached from a regular person that this really is a bug up your a*s.

Now that I think about it - lol this smells funny. Publicity stunts come in all ranges. No holds barred. ESPECIALLY if this guy still has his job. Whatever.

No 'Sammy',,,Most folks would never confuse Lawrence Fishburn for you. 'MOST'...

He has way too much class and dignity and mush less of an agenda based on ignorance and prejudice as what you exhibit.

Lose your 'Malcoln X' get-up and stop imagining that white folks today all have some secret hate for your kind or that every white person must pay for the ignorance of some 150 years ago...

You Sammy are the real idiot and bigot..!

*I do love your acting and artistic works though...Thanks for that! If only you would work more and speak less so long as you maintain your current mindset!

This reporter did not do his job....I'd like to throw my hat in the ring! Lol.
Seriously, I think Sam Jackson did an excellent job of embarassing him ( light heartly even though he was probably teed off).-and deservedly so in my opinion.
People make mistakes,yes-but it is his JOB to know who he is interviewing and do research-5 min. on computer shouldn't be asking too much! If it was a doctor,lawyer or accountant that made that mistake would we be upset if it happened to us? He is a super actor and had every right to expect to be treated decently and the person to be a professional- Mr.J taking the p... out of him was hysterical...doubt this reporter will do diligence on his next interview(if he keeps his job).
