Samuel L. Jackson is interviewed over at Time.com on his upcoming role in the summer blockbuster to end all blockbusters, and he revealed something that makes me drool at the possibilities.
The only thing I've kind of missed is finding a really good western that I want to do, because I watched westerns a lot.
Samuel L. Jackson in a western? That would rock. Oh my god would that rock. That could kick more ass than Snakes on a Plane. And he's so versatile, it could be a dramatic western, a comic western, or the ever fun (and my person favorite) a weird west movie.

I'm totally behind that. Put that man in a motherfucking western!

No, I did not, nor did I desire, to see Wild Wild West. I'm talking about good westerns. See: High Plains Drifter, High Noon, "The Adventures of Brisco County, Junior", Unforgiven, and yes, I even enjoyed Maverick. TNT's made-for-TV Purgatory was a neat weird west one, if only because I got to see some talented actors playing old west ne'erdowells as good guys and having a ball at it. And let's not forget the parody that exceeds the genre, Silverado.
  • What about Deadwood? You can't forget Deadwood.

    OMG, I can't wait for that movie to be released so that when I say at work, "Get these motherfucking snakes off my motherfucking plane", people will know what I'm talking about.

    I also see Samuel L. Jackson doing steampunk. For some reason he's quirky enough for it.

    Difference Engine needs to be made into a movie.
    • He'd be really good as the POV character for the main thread. But Difference Engine wouldn't make a good movie- it isn't a narrative.

      And "Deadwood" had me for an episode or two, but then it just became more and more of the same. Too soap opera-y.
  • oh HELL yes weird western. in the spirit of comic book adaptations, i think i'd die if someone decided to bring Jonah Hex to the big screen, the Hex stuff written by Joe Lansdale to be specific. i love weird western stuff and would just DIE DEAD.
    • That's why I absolutely love High Plains Drifter, that's one of the best weird westerns ever because it's so subtle. More of a western ghost story, but really really yummy.
  • The series Wild Wild West wasn't half bad, I used to watch the reruns with my dad on tv...not that I'm defending the franchise; the obligatory Will-Smith-Yearly-Summer-Blockbusters have been steadily going downhill over the years, and that was one of the worst. My favourite bit was the end of the movie, where the two leads are sitting on their horses in the desert and one of the characters says something to the effect of "ok, let's go back to Washington, D.C."....and they ride off into the sunset. In the wrong direction.

    But yes, Samuel L. Jackson would rock in a Western. Better yet: give Joss Whedon leave to do a sequel to Serenity and put Samuel L. in it. ("You can't take the motherfucking sky from me")



    psst...I'm working on Jason with the rehearsal space idea... I think all he's worried about would be noise complaints, but there aren't that many of you, are there? I don't think it'd be problematic..and it'd be neat to see you all once in a while. :)
    • There's two of us, a drummer later. We generally only practice once a week in the afternoon, on a weekend. Sometimes early evening (like 7pm). I could have mentioned this, but I figured it'd be discourteous to wheedle.

      We're not desperate for space or anything, but hey- at some point soon we're gonna do a friends-only-concert to test out or set and see where things blow up live.
