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 Samuel Jackson was in a nursing home. He has to be as old as my great gramma.

In all honesty, "they" ALL do look alike. And "they" all act alike too - angry, constantly pissed-off, with a HUGE chip on their shoulder, and ready to pull the race card when it suits them... Uneducated gh3tto hypocrites...

Samuel Jackson needs to take it down a peg or two. He's gonna have a stroke.

I think that Mr. Jackson made a grave mistake acting that way. Very childish. If they are going to be role models then act the part of a gentleman or a lady

Uh... I didn't see Sam "ream" anybody. In fact he was pretty cool about it. It wasn't painful, it was funny.

Okay here it is. Rubin MEANT the Marvel commercial, but when challenged and he looked off camera, those two seconds was all it took, letting Jackson do what he's good at. Case closed. Still wont see Robocop.

They look NOTHING alike. Sam Reuben is painful to watch. Anyone remember his fm talk radio show before Frosty, Heidi and Frank? They always made fun of him for being so boring!

Samuel Jackson has worn the same hat for 40yrs. That's the only way I can recognize him.

He's no Denzel that's for sure. That classy man wouldn't have crap spewing out of his mouth like Jackson just did.
