If I asked you to name the highest-grossing actor of all time, who would you pick? JOHNNY DEPP maybe? LEONARDO DICAPRIO? WILL FERRELL, even?
--Well, you'd be wrong, wrong and WRONG. Because the highest-grossing actor of all time is SAMUEL L. JACKSON.
--Jackson's work over the course of his career has earned $7.42 BILLION, earning him a place in the "Guinness Book of World Records".
--Of course, Jackson isn't always the STAR of his movies, but that doesn't matter. As long as he's in them, it counts.
--So I guess that means that even small, early career appearances in movies like "Coming to America" and "Goodfellas".
--Then of course there's the higher-profile stuff like "Pulp Fiction", the "Star Wars" prequels, the original "Jurassic Park", "The Incredibles" and now, all those Marvel superhero movies like "Iron Man", "Thor" and "Captain America".
--Jackson averages three to four movies a year, which he attributes to his family's work ethic. He says, quote, "I grew up in a working class family.
---"When I was a kid, all the adults in my house got up and went to work every day. I assumed that's what grown people do. That's what I do. I just happen to have a very interesting job that's kind of cool!"
