Samuel L. Jackson is an American producer and highly prolific actor, having appeared in over 100 films, including Крепкий орешек 3 (1995), Неуязвимый (2000), Детектив Шафт (2000), Формула 51 (2001), Стон черной змеи (2006), Змеиный полет (2006), and the Star Wars prequel trilogy (1999-2005), as well as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Samuel Leroy Jackson was born in Washington, D.C., to Elizabeth (Montgomery) and Roy Henry Jackson. He was raised by his mother, a factory worker, and his grandparents. At Morehouse College, Jackson was active in the black student movement. In the seventies, he joined the Negro Ensemble Company (together with Morgan Freeman). In the eighties, he became well-known after three movies made by Spike Lee: Делай как надо (1989), Блюз о лучшей жизни (1990) and Лихорадка джунглей (1991). He achieved prominence and critical acclaim in the early 1990s with films such as Игры патриотов (1992), Эмос и Эндрю (1993), Настоящая любовь (1993), Парк юрского периода (1993), and his collaborations with director Quentin Tarantino, including Криминальное чтиво (1994), Джеки Браун (1997), and later Джанго освобожденный (2012). Going from supporting player to leading man, his performance in Криминальное чтиво (1994) gave him an Oscar nomination for his character Jules Winnfield, and he received a Silver Berlin Bear for his part as Ordell Robbi in Джеки Браун (1997). Jackson usually played bad guys and drug addicts before becoming an action hero, co-starring with Bruce Willis in Крепкий орешек 3 (1995) and Geena Davis in Долгий поцелуй на ночь (1996). With Jackson’s permission, his likeness was used for the Ultimate version of the Marvel Comics character, Nick Fury. He later did a cameo as the character in a post-credits scene from Железный человек (2008), and went on to sign a nine-film commitment to reprise this role in future films, including major roles in Железный человек 2 (2010), Мстители (2012), Первый мститель: Другая война (2014) and Мстители: Эра Альтрона (2015) and minor roles in Тор (2011) and Первый мститель (2011). He has also portrayed the character in the second and final episodes of the first season of the TV show, Marvel’s Агенты Щ.И.Т. (2013). He has provided his voice to several animated films, television series and video games, including the roles of Lucius Best / Frozone in Pixar’s film Суперсемейка (2004), Mace Windu in Звёздные войны: Войны Клонов (2008), Afro Samurai in the anime television series Афро самурай (2007), and Frank Tenpenny in the video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (2004).
