Author:   Jeff Hudson

Publisher's Summary:
Samuel L. Jackson is one of the most recognisable and hard-working actors in the world. His films are as varied as Star Wars (Episodes I-III), Jurassic Park, Jungle Fever, Jackie Brown, Pulp Fiction and The Long Kiss Goodnight. But he is just as well-known for his lifestyle: his back-to-front Kangol beret, his unrepentant attitude towards his past drink and drug addictions and his outspoken views on racism in Hollywood.

Deserted by his father as a baby, Jackson was raised by his mother and grandmother in Tennessee. He made his acting debut in the 1970s with a hamburger ad, moved to New York and worked in theatre and film, but it was his breakthrough role as Gator in Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever in 1991 that put him on the map. During the 90s he appeared in 33 films in the US, more than any other actor. He has worked with just about everybody: Scorsese, De Niro, Tarantino, Spielberg, Pacino, George Clooney, Harrison Ford, George Lucas, Ben Affleck, Uma Thurman, Yoda…

Unbelievably, Samuel L. Jackson - The Unauthorised Biography will be the first ever biography to be published. Thorough and authoritative, it will be essential reading for film fans.
