Samuel L. Jackson
Respectfully acknowledged as one of the hardest working actors in Hollywood, Samuel L. Jackson is an undisputed star, as demonstrated by the fact that his films have grossed more money in box office sales than those of any other actor in the history of filmmaking.
Jackson has been honored with awards from some of the most prestigious organizations in the world. He won the Best Supporting Actor award at the Cannes Film Festival in 1991, for Jungle Fever, the Silver Bear Award at the Berlin Film Festival in 1998 for Jackie Brown, has received Golden Globe nominations for Pulp Fiction, A Time to Kill and Jackie Brown, five NAACP Image Award nominations, and one win in 2005 for his performance in Coach Carter, and most recently he has garnered two People's Choice Award nominations in 2006 and 2007 for Favorite Male Actor.
Jackson made an indelible mark on American cinema with his portrayal of 'Jules', the philosophizing hitman, in Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction. In addition to unanimous critical acclaim, he received Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations as Best Supporting Actor as well as a Best Supporting Actor award from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.
Among his many award-winning performances, Jackson made movie history with his portrayal of a crack addict in Spike Lee's Jungle Fever when he was awarded the first and only Best Supporting Performance Award ever given by the judges at the Cannes Film Festival.
In 2007, Jackson starred in the Rod Lurie directed film, Resurrecting the Champ and had a supporting role in the successful horror film 1408 based on the Stephen King novel.

Jackson was recently onscreen in the Doug Liman sci-fi action film Jumper. Later in 2008 he appeared in the Neil LaBute thriller Lakeview Terrace, and the quirky crime drama Cleaner, directed by Renny Harlin, for which Jackson also served as executive producer.
