Samuel L. Jackson Enters Guinness Book of Records

The Guinness Book of World Records named Samuel L. Jackson the highest-grossing actor of all time   according to the New York Daily News. Jackson, 62, has made over $7.42 billion over the span of his entire career.

Never the leading man, Jackson starred in a variety of supporting roles, some memorable, some not. His performance in Pulp Fiction  ($212 million) gave him an Oscar nomination for his character Jules Winnfield.The public will remember his performances in The IncrediblesA Time To Kill, as well as the Star Wars prequels ($2.4 billion)  and Jurassic Park ($914 million).  He’s been in all four Marvel-verse blockbusters –Captain America, Thor, and Iron Men I and II.

Jackson has averaged four films a year over the last 20 years, making six in 2010, four in 2011 and signing up for three next year (2012).

 Good job Sam. BTW-The L is for Leroy. My favorite SLJ movie is The Long Kiss Goodnight. What's your favorite?
