L.
Jackson

Actor

If it’s super, Jackson is probably behind it. Dubbed the most bankable Hollywood star by Box Office Mojo in 2018, Jackson has reportedly earned studios $5.76 billion domestically, higher than Harrison Ford or Tom Hanks. The 70-year-old has appeared in over 120 movies — many of them franchises and many of those Marvel-based, where he’s made his Avengers boss Nick Fury indispensible. Last year, he was in “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Incredibles 2” and “Life Itself,” while his 2019 brought no fewer than six films, including “Avengers: Endgame,” “Spider-Man: Far From Home” and a reboot of “Shaft.” Jackson returns to producing with Fremantle’s miniseries documentary “Enslaved,” commemorating 400 years since the first African was transported to the New World as a slave. He’ll also host the project.
