Samuel L. Jackson’s favorite film role has to be Jules from Pulp Fiction or Nick Fury from the MCU... right? Nope, he is just one major actor who has a surprising personal favorite character.
If most actors are asked about their favorite film roles, they will most likely abstain from the question altogether. They wouldn’t want to offend the other filmmakers they’ve worked with. Or perhaps the actor will select their most popular film - or the movie that won them a prestigious honor like an Academy Award.
However, sometimes it’s not about the box office or the accolades. Actors become attached to certain characters because they identify with them, or in Jackson’s case, because he just thinks his private detective character from the 1996 cult classic The Long Kiss Goodnight is a “fun-loving guy.” Make your voice heard. Vote up the personal favorites that totally surprised you the most.
