Actor Samuel L Jackson has scolded a US TV host who mistook him for fellow movie star Laurence Fishburne.

KTLA reporter Sam Rubin began an interview with the actor by asking about his recent Super Bowl commercial.

He was referring to an advert for the new Kia sedan - in which Fishburne reprised his role from The Matrix.

"We don't all look alike! We may all be black and famous but we don't all look alike," said Jackson. "There's more than one black guy doing a commercial."


Rubin, from his studio in Hollywood, apologised on numerous occasions and tried to steer Jackson onto a discussion about the revival of Robocop - the original reason for the interview.

"Let's talk about Robocop," he said. "Oh hell, no," replied Jackson.


I can hear his voice :)

he didn't like that.

what do you think? I dunno. Jackson was pretty harsh. But you'd think the entertainment correspondent would get that right.

If your job is to talk to celebrities, you better know which celebrity you're talking to. :roll:
