[VIDEO] Anchor Confuses Samuel L. Jackson with Laurence Fishburne in Live Broadcast

This has gotten a lot of exposure in the last few days..but too good not to rewind and replay:

“I’m not Laurence Fishburne,” Jackson exclaimed after a painfully long silence. “We don’t all look alike! We may be black and famous, but we don’t all look alike!”

Samuel L. Jackson Eviscerates Anchor Who Confused Him With Laurence Fishburne Live On Air. “We don’t all look alike!” Jackson told the KTLA anchor.  Samuel L. Jackson appeared on Los Angeles morning show KTLA on Monday to talk about his new film, Robocop, but promotion was the last thing on the actor’s mind after anchor Sam Rubin confused him with Laurence Fishburne.

While rattling off his recent list of professional accomplishments, Rubin included a Super Bowl commercial. But Jackson didn’t actually appear in a Super Bowl commercial last weekend… Laurence Fishburne did.

 “I’m not Laurence Fishburne,” Jackson exclaimed after a painfully long silence. “We don’t all look alike! We may be black and famous, but we don’t all look alike!”

A clearly embarrassed Rubin, realizing his error, apologized and tried to steer the conversation back to the movie. But Jackson wasn’t having it.

Rubin: “Let’s talk about Robocop.”
Jackson: “Oh, HELL no! Really? Really?”

Jackson then proceeded to further distinguish himself from Fishburne. “There’s more than one black guy doing commercials. I’m the ‘What’s in your wallet?’ black guy,” Jackson said, referring to his Capital One commercials. “He’s the car black guy — Morgan Freeman is the other credit card black guy. You only hear his voice though, so you probably won’t confuse him with Laurence Fishburne.”

Jackson then drove his point home, saying, “I’ve actually never done a McDonald’s or Kentucky Fried Chicken commercial. I know that’s surprising.”
