SAMUEL L Jackson doesn’t think he’ll ever get to be in a ‘Bond’ movie.
The ‘Snakes on a Plane’ star has revealed that part of the reason he signed up for ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ is because he wanted to play a ‘Bond’ style villain.
He said, “I don’t think I’ll ever get to be in a Bond film, so I felt like this was an opportunity to play a really great Bond villain.”
A ‘Bond’ film is certainly not one of the next three movies on the cards for the 66-year-old actor, as he revealed that he must always know what films he’s doing next.
He said, “I tend to insist to my agents that I know the next three movies I’m doing ahead of time.”
When asked if he drives his agents insane, he added, “Yes I do! It’s a lot of pressure finding a job for me.”
The ‘Pulp Fiction’ actor also admitted that he reads through most scripts but leaves the negotiating to his team.
He shared to The Observer magazine, “They just give me a bunch of stuff and I’ll pick one and say, ‘Negotiate this deal.’ You know, we make things work.
“If it’s a good story, I might say: ‘They want me to play this guy. I don’t like that guy. I like that guy. Can I be that guy?’ And they’ll find out.
“And then, at other times when a movie comes along, it might be a movie I wanted to see as a kid. So with ‘Tarzan’, I always wanted to be in that movie. Here’s the chance. Hell yeah! Let me be in that.
“It’s still the thing that drives me. I’m still doing the movies I was pretending to do as a kid.” BANG!
