Finger nails[edit]

There is something wrong with his fingernails, I have seen in more than one of his films, they are partially missing and all scarred instead. What is this, some medical condition? Or injury in past? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.196.239.153 (talk) 12:51, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

Role in Avengers: Age of Ultron[edit]

Please change "He is set to reprise the role again in the 2015 film Avengers: Age of Ultron..." to "He reprised the role again in the 2015 film Avengers: Age of Ultron..." Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avengers:_Age_of_Ultron Shreyakgh19 (talk) 08:36, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

Tweaks to get back to GA status[edit]

In the references, there are 10 dead links and "work" and "publisher" should be uniform. Example: The Hollywood Reporter should be italicized, some are and some aren't. Some are linked when they shouldn't be and not even the first one is linked. Also, there are a few references that aren't filled in and as a GA, all references need to be completely filled in.

The 3'rd to last sentence in "Early Life" is incorrect according to the sited source. It claims that Jackson has conquered his speech impediment however the article clearly states that he still has trouble with it, although less frequently. Thesowismine (talk) 00:06, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Agree and have rewritten accordingly. Have also expanded it as the previous version made it sound like saying "motherfucker" is what helped him when the article describes him pretending to be people who don't stutter (which I find just as interesting for an actor), and using the curse word as an affirmation word. I think my wording could be improved on, but can't think of a better way presently Cannolis (talk) 15:18, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 29 October 2015[edit]

In the second para of Early Life, please change "has days where where he stutters." to "has days where he stutters." The current text is not grammatically correct. 117.196.126.47 (talk) 21:35, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

The Long Kiss Goodnight[edit]

I thought it was odd that this great film was missing from Samuel L. Jackson's 1990's entry but it was not clear that the film entry was encyclopedic...RobertJRaven (talk) 08:29, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

"Keitel" links to "Keitel" instead of "Harvey Keitel"[edit]
