Samuel L Jackson saying the classic movie lines of other actors makes them 1000% cooler

Nobody puts Samuel L Jackson in a corner.

Well, nobody apart from Stephen Colbert, who surprised the badass actor during an appearance on his late night US TV show by asking him to read out a few famous movie lines (including that from Dirty Dancing) and prove, once and for all, there’s no catchphrase he can’t make his own.

Giving Sir Ian McKellen on a bridge a run for his money, and knocking Clark Gable's Rhett Butler off his windy perch, it’s a masterclass of acting.

As the great man once said, “accept no substitutes” – unless it’s Samuel L Jackson.
