Samuel L. Jackson in Unbreakable (2000)

SAMUEL L. JACKSON (Elijah Price) made an indelible mark on American cinema with his portrayal of Jules, the philosophizing hitman, in Quentin Tarantino’s "Pulp Fiction," for which he received Academy Awardâ and Golden Globe nominations as Best Supporting Actor, as well as a Best Supporting Actor Award from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.

Most recently, Jackson starred in the title role opposite Christian Bale and Vanessa Williams in "Shaft," for director John Singelton. Also this year, Jackson starred with Tommy Lee Jones in the dramatic hit film "Rules of Engagement," for director William Friedkin.

He recently completed production on Kasi Lemmon’s "Caveman’s Valentine," the story of a homeless schizophrenic man in New York City who discovers a murder, for which he also served as an executive producer. Universal will release the film next year. He is currently in production on the next installment of the "Star Wars" trilogy.

Last year, Jackson starred in Warner Bros.’ "Deep Blue Sea" for director Renny Harlin, and in Francois Girard’s "The Red Violin." Jackson also made a cameo appearance in George Lucas’ highly successful and popular "Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace."

Jackson also starred in "The Negotiator," "Eve’s Bayou," which he also produced, and "Jackie Brown," for which he received a Golden Globe nomination and the Silver Bear Award for Best Actor in a Comedy at the Berlin Film Festival.

Jackson starred opposite Sandra Bullock, Matthew McConaughey and Kevin Spacey in Joel Schumacher’s 1996 film of the John Grisham novel "A Time to Kill," and received a Golden Globe nomination and an NAACP Image Award for his performance. He also starred opposite Bruce Willis in "Die Hard: With a Vengeance," the top-grossing movie internationally in 1995. His other film credits include "187," "Sphere," "The Long Kiss Goodnight," "Hard Eight," "Kiss of Death," "Losing Isaiah" and "Amos and Andrew." His other numerous film credits include "Ragtime," "Sea of Love," "Coming to America," "Ray," "Do the Right Thing," "School Daze," "Mo’ Better Blues," "GoodFellas," "Strictly Business," "White Sands," "Patriot Games," "Jumpin’ at the Boneyard," "Father and Sons," "Juice" and "True Romance."

Jackson preceded his work in "Pulp Fiction" with a performance in the inner-city drama, "Fresh." He made movie history with his portrayal of a crack addict in Spike Lee’s "Jungle Fever" when he was awarded the first and only Best Supporting Performance Award ever given by the judges at the Cannes Film Festival and also won the New York Film Critics Award for Best Supporting Actor for that performance.

On television, Jackson starred in John Frankenheimer’s Emmy Award-winning "Against the Wall" for HBO. His performance earned him a CableACE nomination as Best Supporting Actor in a Movie or Miniseries, as well as a Golden Globe Award nomination.

Jackson’s career began upon his graduation from Morehouse College in Atlanta with a degree in dramatic arts. He went on to perform in numerous stage plays, including "Home," "A Soldier’s Play," "Sally/Prince" and "The District Line." He also originated roles in two of August Wilson’s plays at Yale Repertory Theatre. For the New York Shakespeare Festival, Jackson appeared in "Mother Courage and Her Children," "Spell #7" and "The Mighty Gents." While still a student at Morehouse, Jackson made his film debut in "Together for Days."
