Samuel L. Jackson Chats About Golfing with Donald Trump and Bill Clinton on 'The Late Show' (VIDEO)

samuel l jackson david lettermanSamuel L. Jackson and Donald Trump are golfing buddies? Who knew?

The Marvel movie staple dropped by 'The Late Show With David Letterman' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) to chat about a star-studded golf game that Trump invited him to play in.

Trump asked Jackson to join a game with a few friends, and one of those friends just happened to be Bill Clinton. Which brings me to my next question: Bill Clinton and Donald Trump are golfing buddies?

Perhaps golf is a more important sport than we thought it was. Maybe, one day, golf will be the one interest that all men will have in common.

While Jackson himself isn't a pro at the sport, he says Clinton isn't exactly gonna be seen wearing a green Masters jacket anytime soon either.

Chelsea Handler Mixes Up African-American ActorsTelling Jay Leno about her experience at the White House Correspondents Dinner resulted in an embarrassing faux pas for Chelsea Handler. At her table, Samuel L. Jackson sat beside her and put his hand on her leg several times, she said on 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

"I told him, 'No one's going to have sex with you at this table,'" she joked. "And then Betty White said, 'I'll take one for the team.'"

Cue picture of White kissing ... wait, Morgan Freeman?!

"Oh no, oh no! I'm going to get a lot of letters," said Handler. "We were talking about Samuel Jackson [earlier]. But that does sound really racist, but I'm not. Sorry about that!"

Handler recovered from her embarrassment to then divulge that Katie Couric chose tequila shots as her drink of choice that evening, and Handler had trouble keeping up.

Kara DioGuardi's Nude Photos on 'Tonight'Last March, Kara DioGuardi's father Joe announced his run for a New York seat in the U.S. Senate. Fast forward to Kara's nude spread in 'Allure' magazine, and some tricky father-daughter moments have since transpired.

But as the 'American Idol' judge explained on 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), "I emailed him before I did it, and he wasn't running then." She told him at the time, "It's sort of naked but not naked."

While perusing the magazine article, Jay Leno countered, "I looked for clothes all over here, and I couldn't see anything." Fellow 'Tonight' guest Samuel L. Jackson added, "Is that your real body?"

DioGuardi defended it, but admitted to an awkward conversation with her dad after the piece was published.

Samuel L. Jackson and Frogs on 'Ellen' (VIDEO)

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.

Jackson Talks Sex Scene with WattsFor the film 'Mother and Child,' Samuel L. Jackson and costar Naomi Watts had to get (nearly) naked on day one of filming to shoot a sex scene.

Jackson and Watts barely knew each other. "You always ask the actress, 'Where can I touch you, where can I not touch you?'" he explained on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC). "Then you apologize for, you know, 'I'm sorry if I get excited, and I'm sorry if I don't.'"

"And which way did it go?" asked Jimmy Kimmel.

New HBO movie to star Samuel L. Jackson and Tommy Lee Jones

by Brad Trechak, posted Aug 21st 2009 11:01AM
HBOSamuel L. Jackson and Tommy Lee Jones will be starring in an HBO movie The Sunset Limited. The movie is written by Cormac McCarthy (adapted from his own play of the same name), the same guy who wrote No Country For Old Men, which also starred Jones. To further his connection with McCarthy, Jones will also be directing.

Given the high quality of paid cable fare, I'm not surprised that these two stars are willing to do an HBO movie. Even the premise sounds interesting: Jackson's character saves Jones' character from being hit by a Harlem subway train, leading to a debate on their relative upbringings and value of their lives.

The article doesn't indicate if the movie is intended for their network or a theatrical release. It wouldn't surprise me if it went theatrical. It sounds like the sort of movie that the Academy would love. I'm just hoping that Jackson will say at some point in the movie that he's had it with these motherf***in brakes on these motherf***in trains.

TV, movie stars lend voices to Quantum Quest - Comic-Con Report

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)."

Samuel L. Jackson could have kicked the mother*#&ing s#*% out of sports broadcasting

Samuel L. Jackson hosting The EspysThe thought of having to sit through another cable network awards show makes my Golden Globes shrivel.

It's nothing but a million-dollar idea for getting some useless ink in what's left of the local papers and making a quick buck off the cell texting charges by getting people to vote for awards that mean nothing. It's the television equivalent of the participation medals you got in elementary school for not dying during the mile run.

Thanks to Samuel L. Jackson's work as the host of the recent ESPY Awards, I will sit through whatever awards show he hosts from now on. I don't care if the National Sewage Treatment Board of America hires him to host their annual "Sewey" awards.

For sale: Scarlett Johansson's snot

Johansson, LenoLast night, Scarlett Johansson blew her nose on Jay Leno's show. Today, it's for sale. What came out of it, I mean, not the nose itself.

Johansson has put the tissue and its, um, contents on eBay to raise money for a charity she supports, USA Harvest. Johansson says that she got a cold from Samuel L. Jackson, one of her costars in the new movie The Spirit, which opens on Christmas and looks crazy as hell.

Isn't there some sort of rule on eBay that can't sell bodily fluids or body parts or anything like that? Doesn't sound like the most sanitary thing to buy and ship cross country and store in your home, even if she did put it in a sandwich bag. This could be the worst trend to hit the world of celebrity in years. I don't want to own Danny DeVito's toenails or Alyson Hannigan's earwax or Rainn Wilson's tears.

Samuel L. Jackson joins CBS Paramount

by Brett Love, posted Jun 6th 2008 10:40AM

Samuel L JacksonYes, your grandfather's network just got considerably cooler. Unfortunately, whether or not this is going to put Jackson on our small screens with any regularity remains to be seen. The deal isn't to join a specific series. Rather, Jackson has signed a first-look deal that will have him develop and produce projects for the studio over the next two years.

We'll have to wait to see what, if anything, comes of the new partnership, but there is an encouraging bit in the announcement. Jackson says he's open to the idea of limited appearances on something he produces, referencing Salma Hayek's run on Ugly Betty. I'm of the mind that the more Samuel L. Jackson on the TV the better, but I'll take what we can get. His only previous credit producing television is Spike's Afro Samurai, which is set to return this fall.

The Daily Show: August 15, 2006

The Daily Show"Indecision 2006"/"Diss Ingenuous": Virginia's George Allen threw the word "Macaca" (sounds like nonsense, but apparently, it's a genus of monkey) while shouting at an Indian supporter of his opponent. Bad move, man. Bad move. Correspondent Rob Corddry elaborated on the situation. Rob claimed that he is actually from Macaca, prompting Jon to ask where Macaca was. "Where is Macaca? Right next to Yapeepee!" Haha, I loved Rob's little celebratory dance. When he mentioned that he only has about a week and a half left on the show, it was kind of a downer. Sigh. I'm going to miss Rob.

The Daily Show: February 15, 2006

Jon StewartClearly, The Daily Show has had an absolute field day with the fact that Cheney shot a 78 year-old man in the face... They loved this news enough to stretch it over another episode. Quite frankly, I was amazed. If they talk about it again on Thursday, that'll make an entire week of Daily Show programming about the incident. Who can blame them for eating the news up? I mean, dude, Cheney shot a 78 year-old man in the face. I don't think I need to repeat it again. Anyway, Cheney agreed to a no-holds-bar grilling public press conference about the incident -- okay, not really. He opted for an interview on FOX News (oh, whoop-de-doo), in which he lightly touched on the inner details and also stressed the importance of accuracy because... next time, he will kill Henry Whittington.
