Samuel L. Jackson & Larry the Cable Guy, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Nothing can fire up a comedian better than a receptive audience. Larry the Cable Guy certainly had one on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC), but it wasn't just the studio audience. Almost right away he had both Jimmy Fallon and Samuel L. Jackson laughing so hard they might burst.

In one joke he talked about his nephew's birthday. Larry asked him what he wanted, and his nephew said he wanted incense. "And that night my cousin crawled into bed with him," Larry said matter-of-fact.

With this, Jackson fell over sideways on the couch. Thank goodness he wasn't on a chair or he might have fallen to the ground, he was laughing so hard. Fallon's head was down on his desk.

Samuel L. Jackosn and Frogs on 'Ellen'Sometimes, a simple change of voice can alter everything. Ellen DeGeneres is a big fan of the Discovery Channel series 'Life,' which is narrated by Oprah Winfrey. 'Life' is a nature documentary series that discusses all the major animal groups on Earth. But what would the show sound like if it was narrated by someone else?

On 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated), DeGeneres presents an alternate version of the documentary with a voice-over by Samuel L. Jackson. You haven't truly lived until you've heard Jackson cursing and talking about bullfrogs. "That's a big [censored] frog," he says. "Look at that [censored] frog." It's fantastic.

William Shatner gives voice to The Core in the new animated movie, Quantum Quest.A Thursday panel at Comic-Con International announced a new animated project about space that packs a stellar voice cast.

TV stars like William Shatner, Brent Spiner and Mark Hamill will join movie big shots like Chris Pine, Samuel L. Jackson and James Earl Jones in Quantum Quest: A Cassini Space Odyssey.

Producer -- Dr. Larry "Doc" Kloor (scientist science fiction writer and the only human in history to earn two doctorates simultaneously) -- led the panel with special guests Bob Picardo, Doug Jones and a call-in by Pine.

According to Kloor, Pine plays Dave -- "a photon who lives in Sun City, at the core of the Sun. He's forced from the Sun and drawn into an epic battle between The Core (Shatner -- right) and The Void -- the embodiment of nothingness (Hamill)."

Afro Samurai: Revenge

The future samurai watches his father walk toward his final fight.
(S01E01)
Afro Samurai is Samuel L. Jackson's latest venture. It's a captivating mini series that's something of an americanized cross between Tarantino violence and high quality anime. Aside from providing his voice for two characters, he's also co/executive producing it.

"Revenge" begins in the past with the death of the boys father at the hands of Justice, a cackling creepy character, over posession of the #1 headband. I had to watch the fight a couple of times, but I still don't know just how Justice defeated #1. (A weaponized eyeball maybe?)

DVD Review: Extras: The Complete First Season

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 7th 2007 11:31AM
Extras first season DVDAs I may have mentioned here once or twice, I was a huge fan of the British version of The Office. No matter what the US version accomplishes or how good it gets, I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for the vision Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant had of the average dead-boring workplace and the relationships that are developed there.

So when I was sent a preview copy of the first season of the pair's follow-up effort, Extras (out Tuesday), I was intrigued but wary: after such a successful debut, the sophomore effort more often than not disappoints. Also, all the reviews of the show I had read during its BBC and HBO runs (I have neither channel) were of the mixed-to-positive variety. So... is it worth buying, renting, or neither? I'll let you know after the jump.

The History Channel's tribute to black WWII soldiers

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 9th 2006 9:41AM
honor deferredOne of the many stories left out of our history books about World War Two is the heroics of the 761st Tank Battalion, a group of black soldiers that history forgot. But not the History Channel. This month, presumably in honor of Black History Month, the History Channel is airing Honor Deferred. Narrated by Bernie Mac and Samuel L. Jackson, the documentary pairs historical photos and video archives with interviews of the black men who served in the 761st. The men spent 183 consecutive days in combat, fighting Nazi Germany and its allies. It comes highly recommended by reviewers as an important piece of American history.
