News Anchor Confuses Samuel L. Jackson for Laurence Fishburne

Whatever you do, do not confuse Samuel L. Jackson for someone else.

A KTLA entertainment reporter made that fatal error when he tried to congratulate Jackson on his recent Super Bowl ad — only to realize too late that the actor featured in that spot was actually Laurence Fishburne. When the reporter turned sideways to get some help from off-screen personnel after realizing his faux pas, Jackson caught on and made sure the reporter pays the price for his error.

In the segment below, Jackson proceeds to chew out the reporter saying things such as “We all don’t look alike” and “You’re the entertainment reporter?”  Jackson continues to drill into him even after the reporter tries to segue into talking about Jackson’s newest project, “Robocop.”

Watch the video below to find out the rest of what happened to the KTLA reporter.
