Transcript for Samuel L. Jackson Brings Marvel to 'Live in Times Square'
? pressure ? Look at that. Look at them out there. All little "Captain Americas" out there. They can't even see it. "Pulp fiction," "Star wars." He is one of the most acclaimed and prolific actors dazzling audiences in more than 100 films. And you know how cool he looks in a hat. Eye patch and all. He's proving again head of the superspy agency S.H.I.E.L.D. And head of the security council Robert Redford for help. Take a look. I'm here to ask a favor. I want you to call for a vote, project insight has to be del delayed. Nick. It's a sub.com hearing. A long one. Could be nothing. Probably is nothing. I just need time to make sure it's nothing. Fine. But you got to get ironman to stop by my niece's birthday party. Thank you, sir. Not just a flyby. He's got to mingle. Not just a flyby ladies and gentlemen, Samuel L. Jackson here back on "Good morning America." Oh, it's great to see -- wow, you and Redford. I like how you guys look together ton screen. Kind of awesome. I was, you know, one of those things that you don't expect, you know, being a kid sitting in a theater in Tennessee or Atlanta when I was thinking about acting and seeing Robert Redford, never imagining I'd be in the same acting space, I mean, we know each other, we talk socially. He's a golfer. So we talked about golf that morning when I got to work the first day we worked together and we talked about some other stuff so with we got in the room it was like we were old friends. It comes across that way. He's a sneaky guy. He made that work for him. He did. Your character really again very pivotal. Those people who are not familiar with nick fury, just tell them about your role in the movie. Well, nick fury is the head of S.H.I.E.L.D. He's been around for awhile. It's kind of hard to say what his history is. Yeah. Because when I was a kid, you know, he was a white guy with a patch. Played by David hasselhoff for a minute then I went into the comic store one day and all of a sudden there was my face with the eye patch on. I don't remember saying anybody could use my impact for nick fury and my manager called and said, well, we plan on making these movies and we hope Sam would be interested. Yeah. I think so. I think so. But, you know, he's -- he's a warrior. Uh-huh. He's a fighter, a scrapper, he's been in the dark world, the shadow world, the spies and everywhere else which is where he met Natalia, Scarlett's character, they have this real bond but, you know, we finally follow him to work, so -- Finally. Yeah, we finally go to the office with nick, so there we are. You bring up about the eye patch and people often ask you about that. In fact, on Facebook there was somebody who asked, he says, did you ever trip over things wearing your eye patch? What does it take getting used to and acting in it and losing your depth of perception? Any problems with it? The only problem I discovered that I didn't discover until we did "Captain America," the original "Captain America" because I very seldom have very much to say was that I sat at home and did all my studying and when I got to work the next day I was having difficulty seeing all the lines, I could only visualize half the page and I realized that when I cut my eye off with the patch I cut off half of my sensory perception for lers so now when I learn lines as nick fury I learn them with one hand covering one eye so I can visualize the whole page. You have to do that. Yeah. Well, it's being well received. You're going all around the world. These big premieres and everything. Yeah, we've been everywhere. I know you said you went -- you've been around. People always are showering you with gives and that and that you were actually surprised in the hotel they did something for you. Yeah. What did they do? I've been in tons and tons and tons of hotels but when we checked into the Barclay hotel in London when I walked in the room the first thing I noticed was they had monogrammed the pillowcase slj on it. I never been in a hotel room with my monogram on it and went in the bathroom and the bathrobe had my monogram on it. That's when you know you've arrived. Hey. Blake, that's a kufuor Blake. We've never done this on "Good morning America." We had monogrammed the "Good morning America" -- there you go. So now you know. I'm happy about that. And since you're so, so -- you can have that on the golf course. Twitter follower. You're so -- you make everything sound cool. You make everything look cool so why don't you take us to break here, Mr. Cool. Go ahead, hit it. "Captain America," the winter soldier opens this Friday, April 4th. Ooh. Break out country duo Dan + shay. Oh, that was so cool.
