Samuel L. Jackson has starred in countless films making him one of the most easily recognizable actors in Hollywood. However, to one clueless entertainment news reporter, black actors all seem to be interchangeable.
During a live television interview, the reporter kindly asked Jackson about his recent Super Bowl commercial. The problem? Jackson wasn’t in a Super Bowl commercials this year. That spot actually starred another easily recognized black actor, Laurence Fishburne. Now we all make mistakes. But come on, man.

Jackson’s stone-faced reaction was priceless as he went off on the reporter saying, among other things, “You’re as crazy as the people on Twitter! I’m not Laurence Fishburne!” He continued, “We don’t all look alike! We may all be black and famous, but we don’t all look alike!”
Jackson is currently promoting his new film Robocop, in theaters this week. While Fishburne just closed a deal for a reoccurring role on ABC’s untitled Anthony Anderson pilot.
The reporter has since apologized. But you can still watch the full, cringe-worthy, Sam Jackson interview below….
