Video: Samuel L. Jackson asks interviewer to say the ‘n’ word
We’re big fans of Samuel L. Jackson at JOE and this recent interview merely confirms our liking for the Pulp Fiction star.

Jackson was promoting his most recent film Django Unchanined and Emmy award winner Jake Hamilton sat down to ask a few questions, but he got more than he bargained for during the chin-wag.
He asked Jackson for his thoughts of the use of the ‘n’ word that is repeated right throughout the film, but Jackson refuses to answer the question until Hamilton says the full word. (go to 13:56 to see Jackson’s request)
The interviewer is a little stuck for words before moving onto his next question, with Jackson revelling in his discomfort.
We must say that Hamilton reacted well to the request and could easily have got himself into trouble by agreeing to say the word for the sake of the interview.
