Whenever there’s Sam Jackson news to be reported, I’m always excited to write it up. And it’s not just because he’s one of my favorite actors ever. It’s because any article featuring the original
“Bad Mother F—r” pretty much writes itself.
But there’s no need for me to dip into my extensive list of Sam-isms (culled mostly from Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown) to make this news exciting. And the news, of course, is that the Nick Fury character, portrayed by Jackson in a post-credits cameo in Iron Man, will have a greatly expanded role in Iron Man 2. We got the story from IESB, which you can read here.
Jackson also said he was looking forward to working with Don Cheadle, who will be taking over the role of Jim Rhodes from Terence Howard.
