No one has a work ethic like Samuel L. Jackson. Ever since he signed up with Spike Lee and hit the big screen with the rest of his jheri curl buddies in School Daze, the offers haven’t stopped rolling in. Who would’ve thought that his small role in that flick would lead to so many others?
According to the New York Daily News, the Guinness Book of World Records has inducted Jackson as the highest grossing actor of all time. Now that doesn’t mean he makes more per film than any other actor. But it does mean that he–over the course of his career–has made more money than anyone else in entertainment.
The soul man, since choosing to do the right thing, has obviously never come down with anything including jungle fever. There’s no way he could’ve accumulated $7.42 billion if he was any less than strictly business. Either he has a great management team or he is a great negotiator. He didn’t play the prima donna either. He didn’t complain about snakes on a plane, he got to the set on time every time. There is no pulp fiction in his story either. Just review his long list of films. He has truly proven himself to be unbreakable. (that was fun)
