* Jackson came to {{Website/Reddit}} with an offer: donate at least $70,000 to Alzheimer's Association, and he would select a monologue to read [[http://www.reddit.com/r/movies/comments/1f9x5y/im_samuel_l_jackson_and_ill_record_a_video_of_me/ from all their submissions]]. The donations ran so high ($130,000!) that he decided to read ''two'' monologues.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Kt9WRYpMoY In the first monologue]], [[spoiler:he cancels the monologue to announce he's giving up acting to become a vigilante crime-fighter.]]
*** [[spoiler:Which was faked. The "vigilante announcement" was just the chosen monologue. Trolling successful.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OuoZqLyMMI4 In the second]], [[spoiler:he gives the "I am the one who knocks speech" from ''Series/BreakingBad''.]]
* Samuel L. Jackson giving Marvel permission to use his [[InkSuitActor likeness]] for [[ComicBook/TheUltimates Ultimate Nick Fury]] on the condition that he gets to portray the character in a Live Action Film. This was in '''''2002''''', long before Marvel even thought of creating their [[MarvelCinematicUniverse Cinematic Universe.]] Since then, Ultimate Nick Fury has become ''the'' BreakoutCharacter of the Ultimate Universe, now being used as the design for Nick Fury in every adaptation, and even supplanting the classic Nick Fury in the main Universe. Jackson also had a guaranteed contract for the billion dollar MCU Franchise. MagnificentBastard anyone?
