KTLA TV Clip: Reporter Mistakes Samuel Jackson for Lawrence Fishburne

Samuel Jackson Lawrence Fishburne

KTLA Reporter Sam Rubin Mistakes Samuel L. Jackson for Lawrence Fishburne. While promoting RoboCop (2014), the mistake that was made was admittedly dubious but Samuel L. Jackson took the ocular error and ran with it like a seasoned comedian. Sam Rubin had to sit and take the verbal tongue lashing. To his credit he took the Dr. House-like brow beating in stride.

What began the rant:

Rubin asked Jackson about public reaction to his Super Bowl commercial. Of course, Jackson didn’t have a super bowl commercial. Rubin was referring to the KIA ad in which Lawrence Fishburne reprized his role as Morpheus from the Matrix movies.

Dialogue from the interview:

I’m not Laurence Fishburne. We don’t all look alike. We may be all black and famous, but we all don’t look alike. You’re busted…There’s more than one black guy doing a commercial. I’m the ‘What’s in your wallet?’ black guy. Morgan Freeman is the other credit card black guy. You only hear his voice though so you probably won’t confuse him with Laurence Fishburne. You’re the entertainment reporter for this station? And you don’t know the difference between me and Laurence Fishburne? There must be a very short line for your job.
