Samuel L. Jackson is an American actor and film producer who has appeared in more than 100 films.[1] The collective total of all box office receipts for films that Jackson has starred in (including minor roles and cameos) is the highest of any on-screen actor.[2] As of December 2013, Jackson has appeared in 91 theatrical films with a worldwide box office gross of approximately $13.282 billion to date.[3] Jackson's film career started in 1972 with a role in the film Together for Days.[1] Over the next nineteen years Jackson was cast in multiple films as minor characters up until his breakthrough role as Gator, a crack addict, in the 1991 Spike Lee film Jungle Fever, for which he won a special jury prize for best supporting actor at the Cannes International Film Festival.[4]

After Jungle Fever, Jackson was cast in starring roles in Amos & Andrew,[5] Pulp Fiction, The Great White Hype, A Time to Kill, and the The Negotiator.[6] In 1999, Jackson started playing the recurring character Mace Windu in both the Star Wars prequel trilogy[7] and in the animated film Star Wars: The Clone Wars[8] Since 2000, he has been cast as the lead in the remake of Shaft,[9] S.W.A.T.,[10] Coach Carter,[11] Snakes on a Plane,[12] and Lakeview Terrace, among other films.[13] Jackson played Marvel Comics character Nick Fury in the films Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the first six of a nine-film commitment as the character for Marvel Studios. He reprised the role again in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and will again in Infinity War parts I and II.

For his role in Pulp Fiction, Jackson won a British Academy of Film and Television Arts award for Best Supporting Actor[14] and was nominated for an Academy Award[15] and a Golden Globe Award. In 1994, he was also nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a miniseries for Against the Wall.[16] Jackson also received Golden Globe nominations in 1996 for A Time to Kill[17] and in 1997 for Jackie Brown.[18] In 2000, Jackson was given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and in 2006 put his hand and footprints outside Grauman's Chinese Theatre.[1]
