It’s no secret that Samuel L. Jackson had an addicton to crack-cocaine. The superstar has admitted in several interviews that long before he landed the part of Nick Fury, in the Marvel hit film The Avengers, he had a crack habit that nearly cost him every thing.
Impressively, Jackson was able to over-come his personal demons, with the help of his beautiful wife, to become one of the biggest actors in Hollywood and the highest-grossing actor of all time, starring in over 100 movies from 1972-present.
In his earlier career, long before becoming an action hero, Jackson usually played bad guys and drug addicts, roles which correlated directly to his personal lifestyle. Who Got The Role? has compiled a list of movie roles that Samuel may have used his own personal drug experience and inner demons to channel the spirit for those roles. They’re all pretty hilarious so enjoy!
