Samuel L. Jackson is one of the busiest actors in Hollywood, and he has co-starred in more blockbuster movies (including films in the "Star Wars" and Marvel franchises) than most other actors, so he's earned the right to some privileges when he signs on to do a movie. On Aug. 17, 2013, Jackson's name became a trending topic on Yahoo! when news broke that he has a clause written into his contracts to allow him free time to play golf, one of his favorite pasttimes.
In a CNN interview from August 2013, Jackson commented about the "golf clause" in his contracts: "Generally, they either move me onto a golf course so I can play or join a club so I can play, and they have to let me play at least twice a week ... I like golf because it's a perfect game for an only child like me. ... In this game, you get responsibility for everything you do bad, and you get all the credit for everything you do well."
Jackson has several movies on tap in 2013 and 2014.
In 2013, his movies are the animated flick "Turbo" and the American remake of the Korean crime thriller "Oldboy."
In 2014, Jackson can be seen in the superhero flick "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" (a sequel to 2011's "Captain America: The First Avenger"), "RoboCop" (a remake of 1987's "Robocop"), the action flick "Kite" and the crime thriller "Reasonable Doubt."
Jackson earned an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the 1994 movie "Pulp Fiction."
Some of his other hit movies include 2000's "Unbeakable," 2004's "The Incredibles" and 2012's "Django Unchained."
