Samuel L. Jackson explains his purple lightsaber

By / 07.01.13

Samuel L. Jackson’s explanation on the Graham Norton Show of how he ended up in Star Wars and why Mace Windo’s light saber was purple proves he just like us, only badass. It just goes to show that it really can’t hurt to ask.

I think we would have all been content playing a Stormtrooper. Even in full armor it would be a big step up from my non-existent role in the movie. Lucky for Samuel L. Jackson he’s a bad mother-shutyomouth. Leave it to the man who’s been in no fewer than a million movies to make the jump from extra to one of the last remaining members of the Jedi counsel. And who can blame him for wanting to stand out in a crowd? He was probably that guy at graduation who wrote something stupid on his hat so he could spot himself in pictures.
