Reporters have a lot to worry about when they are doing their segments. They have to make sure they have their stories in order, that they are prepared for anything and most of all know who they are interviewing!!

News Reporter Sam Rubin was going to chat with actor Samuel L. Jackson about the upcoming remake film ‘RoboCop‘ but instead ended up giving the reporter a tough lecture on celebrity confusion.

Rubin made the mistake of asking Jackson about the feedback for his work on the SB commercial. Unfortunately, that was not Samuel L. Jackson, it was the actor Laurence Fishburne.

Here is the commercial Rubin was talking about:

As for Jackson, he did appear in a commercial during the SB. Actually two, one was for the movie Captain America 2 and the other was for RoboCop.

As Rubin tried to go back and talk about the movie RoboCop, Jackson was not letting go of the whole misunderstanding. My favorite smarty pants response Jackson gave the reporter was:

“I’m the ‘What’s in your wallet?’ black guy. Laurence is 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. There’s a heavyweight black guy that’s putting cash down in the seats at a baseball stadium, but he’s also the black guy that turns off the house, the water, and the lights when his kid tells him the house is cool. I’m not that guy either.”

Once actor Samuel L. Jackson made his point they did eventually talk about the movie.

Check out the interview here. (It’s hilarious!)
