Who’s The Highest-Grossing Actor of All Time is . . .
If I asked you to name the highest-grossing actor of all time, who would you pick? JOHNNY DEPP maybe? LEONARDO DICAPRIO? Perhaps TOM CRUISE? WILL FERRELL, even?
SAMUEL L. JACKSON!
Jackson’s work over the course of his career has earned $7.42 BILLION, earning him a place in the “Guinness Book of World Records“.
Of course, Jackson isn’t always the STAR of his movies, but that doesn’t matter. As long as he’s in them, it counts.
So I guess that means that even small, early career appearances in movies like “Coming to America” and “Goodfellas”.
Then of course there’s the higher-profile stuff like “Pulp Fiction“, the “Star Wars” prequels, the original “Jurassic Park“, “The Incredibles” and now, all those Marvel superhero movies like “Iron Man“, “Thor” and “Captain America“.
“When I was a kid, all the adults in my house got up and went to work every day. I assumed that’s what grown people do. That’s what I do. I just happen to have a very interesting job that’s kind of cool!”
Sam Jackson is too cool for school – which is what makes us look past things like “Snakes on a Plane”. We forgive you Sam…but we’ll never forget.
However, we are looking forward to seein’ you as Nick Fury in the new AVENGERS flick. Here’s the teaser for the film due out May 4th 2012.
AWESOME! Go get ‘em Sam! We can’t wait.
