The Many (Many) Faces (and Hairstyles) of Samuel L. Jackson

IMDB.com lists 159 acting credits for Samuel L. Jackson over a career that’s spanned more than 40 years. Jackson’s as versatile as he is prolific; though he’s likely best known for his action films and his flair for language (and especially profanity, his skills as a chameleon might be underrated. He’s made 160 films and television shows and looked like 160 wildly different people. Few actors seem to delight in the specifics of costuming, hair, and makeup as much as he does, and few have exhibited a wider array of hairstyles, facial hair, and wardrobes. From the earliest days of his career all the way up to next week’s ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service,’ nobody’s worn silver hair, a kilt, or exaggerated octopus-style eye makeup quite like Samuel L. Jackson. In honor of his great achievements in outlandish onscreen fashion, please enjoy this gallery spotlighting just a few of his many sartorial highlights.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘American Sniper’ Continues Its January Onslaught

In most years, January tends to be the most boring month of the year for the box office. This is where Hollywood typically sends the movies in which it has the least faith. This is the dumping ground, the place where movies go to die so the studios can concentrate on their Oscar campaigns. However, thanks to ‘American Sniper,’ this January has bucked every trend. It may technically be a 2014 release, but Clint Eastwood’s war film has made the first chunk of 2015 interesting, shattering expectations and threatening to become the highest grossing film of last year in only a few weeks.
