Legendary actor and perpetual yeller Samuel L. Jackson sat down with Peter Travers and spoke on the new Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens. Jackson, best known for his roles as Quentin Tarantino flicks and Mace Windu in the prequels, had some rather choice advice for the new cast of Force Awakens. His thoughts? They could use a little bit of extra training! After giving a few ‘diplomatic’ answers as the interviewer calls it, Jackson drops that bombshell. I don’t know about you guys, but he definitely doesn’t seem all that impressed. ‘Spirit of Star Wars’? Hmmm. Perhaps he still didn’t like how he went out at the end of Revenge of the Sith! Can’t say that I don’t blame him but at least it’s better than being eaten by a shark with a big brain…right? RIGHT?
