Samuel L. Jackson Talks Star Wars on 'The Daily Show'

 By: Dominic Jones

Star Wars alum Samuel L. Jackson, aka Mace Windu, appeared on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart to promote his upcoming film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  When asked about the process of making big budget action movies, Jackson relayed a story from his experience working on the Star Wars prequels, saying,

"When I first started doing Star Wars it was just a big green room and we had some things in there and I had my lightsaber and George would say 'ok, there's this thing attacking you', and I go 'how big is it?'  And he says 'it's as big as an SUV' and I go 'really, how fast is it?'  And he says 'it's as fast as you want it to be.'  So I'm like I can do anything I want and you'll draw stuff around me?  He says kick all the ass you want and we will make sure it looks like you're the baddest Mother F@#$er in the universe....And then I go the movie and I'm like f@#$!  Look at me!"

What I like about Sam Jackson interview is that he never whines about having to work with green screen.  Whenever he talks about his experience on Star Wars it's always a positive one, and you get the sense that he really appreciates the fact that he got to be a part of the galaxy far, far away.
