“Are you surprised the phone rings as much as it does?” That’s how KTLA entertainment reporter (which is a fancy way of saying, “One step up from Rush Hour DJ”) Sam Rubin began his interview with Samuel L. Jackson this morning. But just in case that backhanded compliment wasn’t vaguely insulting enough, Rubin later asked Jackson about his Super Bowl commercial. Five seconds of awkward silence later, Rubin remembered that it’s not Jackson in the ad, it’s Laurence Fishburne, which, considering Fishburne is PLAYING MORPHEUS FROM THE MATRIX IN THE AD, shouldn’t have been too hard to remember.
Some men may have laughed off the mistake. Not Jackson, though. The best part: “What’s in your wallet?”
