Video: Samuel L Jackson recited his terrifying speech from Pulp Fiction on Graham Norton last night

At least he didn’t shoot anyone this time around… or at least we think he didn’t.

Even if he didn’t pull a gun, one of the coolest men in Hollywood was still scary as hell on Graham Norton last night when the host asked him to recite his famous speech from Pulp Fiction, one of the most menacing and modern monologues in cinema history.

The speech we’re referring to, of course, is when Jackson’s character Jules quotes a passage from the bible (Ezekiel 25:17) to scare the sh*te out of the poor chap he’s interrogating, a poor chap that subsequently meets his maker in a fashion familiar to anyone who’s ever watched a Tarantino movie.

It may well have been pre-planned last night but we’d like to think that Jackson has it off by heart at this stage, ready to unleash on anyone who looks at him sideways.

Was last night’s version as good as the original? Jackson probably looked a bit more frightening with the added hair, moustache and gun 20 years ago, but we'll let you watch it all over again and decide for yourself.
