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 thought it was hilarious! Jackson was gracious and funny as hell. Contrary to the headline, I never heard him call anyone a moron...

ROFLMAO! SLJ, you land on that moron like a house from Kansas in a wind storm. Good job at being tame on the responce too because that reporter deserved everything in language you know how to produce.

I'm more shocked an entertainment reporter working in LA doesn't immediately recognize S.L. Jackson.........

Wow really! How can they not tell them apart? I am so surprised that the anchor didn't make some comment like well you all look alike. I personally hate that saying. I love both actors and the movies they do. I guess someone forgot how to read before an interview to make sure of who he was talking to

I loved Samuel L. Jackson in "Glory." He was also good in "They Call Me Mr. Tibbs" and "Driving Miss Daisy." Great actor!

Honest Mistake    

There was a Captain America 2 trailer that aired during the superbowl. Could that have been the commercial the anchor was talking about? Because note, the anchor never mentions specifically what commercial he's referring to, its Sam who accuses him. It sounds like the anchor was under prepared and had no idea what he was talking about (anchor's fault) and should at the very least have known, if he was gonna talk about Sam's superbowl commercial, that he knew it was a commercial for Cap 2
