The Many (Many) Faces (and Hairstyles) of Samuel L. Jackson
IMDB.com lists 159 acting credits for Samuel L. Jackson over a career that’s spanned more than 40 years. Jackson’s as versatile as he is prolific; though he’s best known for his action films and his flair for language (and especially profanity), his skills as a chameleon might be underrated. He’s made 160 films and television shows and looked like 160 wildly different people.
Few actors seem to delight in the creative side of costuming, hair, and makeup as much as he does, and few have exhibited a wider array of hairstyles, facial hair, and wardrobes. From the earliest days of his career all the way through next week’s ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service,’ nobody’s worn silver hair, a kilt, or exaggerated octopus-style eye makeup quite like Samuel L. Jackson. In honor of his great achievements in outlandish onscreen fashion, please enjoy this gallery spotlighting just a few of his many sartorial highlights.
