Samuel L. Jackson Biography
Samuel Leroy Jackson (born December 21, 1948) is an American actor. He has starred in many Hollywood movies. His performance in Jungle Fever was so acclaimed, the 1991 Cannes Film Festival created a Supporting Actor award just for him. Along with that award, he has won many others including a Silver Berlin Bear, A BAFTA Film Award, and two Independent Spirit Awards.

It is sometimes rumored that the "L" in Jackson's name is fictional. Some speculate that when he registered as an actor, "Sam Jackson" and "Samuel Jackson" were already taken, so he adopted the middle initial of "L".
