  • SAMUEL L. JACKSON

    December 21, 1948
    Washington, D.C.

    Samuel L. Jackson was raised by his mother and grandparents. He attended Morehouse College in Atlanta, and in 1969 he was briefly suspended for taking several members of the college's board of trustees, including Martin Luther King, Sr., hostage during a sit-in to protest the absence of black trustees and a black studies curriculum. Graduating in 1972 with a degree in theater arts, Samuel L. Jackson remained in Atlanta, finding work in television commercials and regional theatrical productions, as well as a small role in his first feature film, "Together for Days".
          In 1976, Samuel L. Jackson moved to New York City where he became involved with the Negro Ensemble Company, performing in several notable productions. It was during this time Samuel was introduced to Spike Lee, who later cast him in four films. In 1980 Samuel married his college sweetheart, actress LaTanya Richardson, whom he had met while attending drama classes at Morehouse's sister school, Spelman College.
          Samuel L. Jackson began to receive international attention 1991 when director Spike Lee cast him as the crack-addicted Gator in "Jungle Fever", a part which won him a special Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, as well as the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Supporting Actor. Over the next five years Jackson went on to costar in more than 20 feature films and several made-for-TV movies.
          Samuel L. Jackson is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Jules, the hit man in Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction", for which he earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
